Merry Christmas

My family tradition is to open all presents on Christmas Eve. This is followed by a thorough picking up and putting away. The living room must be clean for Santa.

Nice tradition, Mom. I appreciate it a lot more as a Mom, than I did as a kid.

Santa then leaves unwrapped presents for the entire family under the tree and fills the stockings.

About two weeks ago Harrison informed my that Santa is a myth. Those were his exact words. We had a long talk about how fun the myth can be, on both the receiving and giving end. On Christmas morning Harrison received the gifts from Santa with a knowing smile in our direction.

We all enjoyed dumping out our stockings.

Then we played a quick game of Mouse Trap, another childhood favorite.

The kids were all smiles after the church service.
