By the time the older kids brought their gifts for us (!) and each other and Santa filled our stockings, the living room was FULL of gifts! On Christmas morning, we enjoyed opening them together. There were noticeably fewer toys under the tree for Kristin and Kaira this year, replaced by clothes, things for their bedrooms, and electronics. Passing time affects us all. In the late morning, we walked next door to Todd and Nancy’s for our Cullen Christmas celebration. The afternoon and evening were quiet for Scott and the little girls and I, as the older kids all spread out to celebrate with in-laws and their significant other’s families. I took a nap....for the first time in perhaps a couple of years!
