Since Keith works every Christmas, our family tradition is to celebrate as a family on Christmas Eve. The plan is to have dinner, go to our church's Christmas Eve service, then home for gifts with just the six of us. This year, we invited my parents to come to dinner before all heading to church. However, the snow and ice caused the service to be cancelled, so after dinner Nana and Pappaw headed home and we opened gifts.
We got a few pictures under the tree, but none of them turned out very well. Too much going on. Each child got a favorite gift...Will's was a hard to find F-15 model airplane, Charlie's was his own DS- which he had to "earn" by learning to read, Katie Beth's was a new baby doll- which she named "Baby Gung-gung" (who knows why), and Jack loved his new Thomas the trains!
After opening gifts we tried for another picture under the tree, but it was simply too chaotic. Jack is so on-the-go he was a smear in most of the pictures.
