Holiday Recap

No You Capture this week, but I have this post all ready to go. Beth and family are on vacation with spotty internet connection. I'm just going to post it anyway.

2:30 a.m. on Christmas eve is the right time to start putting the presents under the tree. This is just the start. Many more to follow.

Christmas morning is the time to put Baby Jesus in his manger.

Let's eat some breakfast and get this party started.

Let the unwrapping begin.

What did you get?

Even big boys get presents if they are good.
And 22 year olds can still get dolls and be excited about it.
Okay, let's move this party to Grandma Lou's house.

With almost 40 people opening presents, you have to grab your own space and hold on tight.
This is my beautiful mom and me. Would you ever guess she is 84 years old?

True to form, the things that the gifts came in...

....were the most fun to play with.

We had a wonderful Christmas. I hope you all did too.
