Well, unlike many households, when the first child was up (Holly) there was no big excitement. Actually there was nothing under the tree. There were 4 worn out children, 2 exhausted parents, and a tired grandma. For this reason I'm thankful the kids aren't caught up in Santa and experiencing great disappointment. We were able to eat our cinnamon rolls, read the Christmas story from Luke 2 and John 14 in honor of Tim's mom, and begin on the gifts by 10:30. Trust me, there was nothing lacking in the present department! After cleaning up we prepared for our honored guests, Tommy and Vanessa. We enjoyed a meal of filet mignon with baby French fries followed by a Happy Birthday Jesus cake from Ele Cake Company.
