In the past, we have always let ds open his gifts during the party, all the kids gather around to see what he got, etc. But I was thinking that this year, it might be easier and less stressful (and less overwhelming for ds) if we just opened the gifts at home later. I figure that the kids are going to want to be playing and running around, NOT sitting there watching ds open umpteen gifts (I'd actually prefer they didnt even bring gifts, but that is just unavoidable). If we wait until Sunday evening at home to open the gifts, ds can take his time, play with them, and we can clean up the mess of paper at home rather than trying to do it during his party.
What is the opinion on this and what do you do with your own kids b-day parties?
