- The noon Christmas meal
- A Christmas Story all.day.long.
- family in and out
- girls gift exchange
- reading of the Christmas Story before the last of the gift giving
- and getting late so some are in pajamas already.
The parents had their fun helping the little ones open their gifts.
While the others watched and got to play with things as they were opened.
Girl gift exchange time while the little ones napped and the men napped or was doing something else.
Each adult girl brought a gift and we took turns choosing a gift and then you could take someone else's gift if you wanted it instead. One gift was opened, with ooooing and ahhhing the gift was kissed and was told I love you, before someone would take her gift in trade. FYI, she got to keep her gift thru the whole gift exchange. A zilllion pictures taken until we cold agree on one for public posting. Fun, with a lot of cute good gifts like bubble/bath things, gift certificates, nail polish, all girly things. The younger girls wouldn't do the picture thing.
When time to leave, one more gift arrived for a dad to assemble. Both were waiting patiently and helping for the final assembly for playing again.
Which took a while. You do know that dads have a hard time with Christmas toy assembly.
And a good nite to all!
