Still, Christmas Day came and it was another wonderful day. This year we had both John's parents, and my parents here, along with my brother, Rick, my sister Cathy, and my brother-in-law, Don. They all came Christmas Eve and stayed over. There's nothing I like more than a ton of people sitting around the tree Christmas morning, sipping tea, watching everyone open their presents, and enjoying each other. I didn't take any pictures, but John captured some. I love what he captured, because it really reflects the morning.
Before everyone was up.
Cameron's favorite gift - his cell phone.
Matt spent a lot of time and effort shopping for everyone this year. He couldn't wait for me to open the Pandora Bead that he picked out for me.
Uncle Don was happy getting a remote-controlled helicopter. Inside every man is still a little boy.
I love watching Matt open gifts. It doesn't matter what it is, it's always his favorite.
I'm not even sure that Spencer was awake the whole morning. Inspite of his enthusiastic look, he loved getting the Silent Brass - which now means he can take his instrument back to his dorm and practise without bothering anyone.
