We spent a good part of Christmas eve wrapping presents. So we never got around to our “semi-tradition” of unwrapping one gift on Christmas Eve.
Because Financial Tools (Tim’s employer) was only open a half day on Christmas Eve, Tim worked the 6:00 AM to 10:00 AM shift (thanks to a co-worker who picked him up and dropped him off). So Tim and Jeri were up at 5:00 AM. Tim crashed on his bed around 10 PM.
Our church had a service on Christmas morning at 11 AM. So we didn’t have time to open presents before church. Getting home around 1 PM, we proceeded to have our Christmas Day dinner which was leftover Chinese carryout from the night before. We opted to skip the faux-turkey meal in lieu of something simpler. Hong Kong Express is a crowd-pleaser at our house.
After lunch cleanup was done, we had to take our annual Christmas photo. Here’s the picture.
Here’s Sarah in front of the tree.
Here’s Jeffrey with some of his presents. Note the top of the chip cans in the foreground.
Here are Josiah and Elizabeth.
