Christmas morning started at 5:45AM, thanks to Jessica who can never sleep waiting for presents to start! The kids have to wait by their bedrooms until the lights are on, the fireplace is glowing, the music sets the mood, the quiche is in the oven and the cameras are ready... then the kids can come out and see what Santa brought for them. While they are waiting, we give the kids crystal glasses with egg nog or sparkling cider... whichever they wish... When it was finally time to start the celebration, Anna saw her Barbie Dream House, Jessica received a new pink IPOD and Chris tried on his custom OGHS swim parka!
We went up to Mary and John's house for the afternoon celebration... more great food, gifts, hot tubing and my new favorite game, "Rock Band 2." Hope you enjoy the slide show of the sights and sounds of our special day! Merry Christmas!
