Since it's not quite 2008...

...it's still appropriate for me to share our Christmas Day festivities with you. Right?



"Mom! Dad! Wake up! WAKE UP!!! It's Christmas! Come ON!!!"





"Dad, seriously. Hurry up and let us come down stairs!"





We try to organize the chaos. They all open one at a time... together.





I was wrong. There WERE legos under the tree.





"Can I open this one now? Now? NOW?"





"Finally!"





"What in the world is..."





"Awww... SWEET!!!"





"But, I don't know what it is! Mom, what is it? Can I open it? Is it REALLY for ME?"





Pure joy. Prayed for and greatly anticipated. (A huge you'll-never-know-how-much-this-truly-meant thank you to her benefactors... if you ever read this.)





The kiddie table.





The grown-up table... complete with two sets of grandparents, a cousin, and a good friend.





Rockets can't just sit in the package, they need to be launched!





Our gifts may differ from Christmas to Christmas. We may share the day with different people each year. But we always end the celebration the same way. Happy Birthday, Jesus. We hope you like Cherry Cheese Pie.
