We had a wonderful Christmas! We spent time with Troy's family on Christmas Eve, our traditional chicken and sausage gumbo and opening presents from youngest to oldest. We've done that for as long as I can remember and longer! This morning, Troy and I woke to find 3 of our children in our room asleep. We crept out and fixed coffee and Troy lit the fire. After the kids got up, we read Luke 2~the story of Jesus' birth. What a wonderful tradition, so see them understand more and more, to start our day honoring the reason for the day. The kids had a wonderful time opening their presents and working together.
Here's a rough draft of the video I'm working on of our Christmas photos:
