Yesterday afternoon Worth and Emmett got in some 'boy time' on the golf course (bonding). We attended Christmas Eve service at our church (inspiration) and then made it over to the Gaines' annual gathering (laughs).

Today we did something we have never, ever done before on Christmas morning; we slept in! The B'ham and Albany crews weren't due here until early afternoon, so we had a leisurely Christmas morning. Although it was different, we found that it was not a bad way to begin the day.

Guess they are wondering where Santa is.
|The table is ready!|
|Sa and Gramps got here first, so E.W. and Gramps|
had time to solve all of the world's problems.
Ellie arrived, charmed everyone, and then napped while we opened gifts and had Christmas dinner. Then she woke up in time to do some more charming and try out her new Bumbo.
|Auntie Kate loves her Ellie Bean.|
|Mia gets a squeeze.|
|E.W. gets some sugar.|
|Ellie's napping; time to open gifts. |
Yeah, the German puzzle isn't quite finished!
|Ashley explains our gift. |
This is standard for our group, having to explain gifts.
|Sa shocks Kate with a BIG gift,|
her diamond earrings.
