Joyful, Joyful Christmas


Christmas is the best. Everyone's on their best behavior, sharing, giving, receiving. Nothing could be nicer. 

As our tradition goes we say grace and eat first. To get it out of the way. People can go back and eat more anytime later in the day. 

We always read the Christmas story next. It's so sweet that the little ones are learning the Christmas Story. 

At Thanksgiving Dinner we draw names for Christmas gift giving. By Christmas Day we're ready to exchange our Christmas gifts to each other. We've only been planning and waiting for a month. 

Even adults tear into their gifts. 

Kids again. 

Adults again.

It was a Very Merry Christmas.
