We spent most of Christmas Eve hanging out at home and just had to be ready to go to church at 4:30. This year, they had families who had welcomed a new baby during the year do the readings, so we participated in the first service. There is a video here of us reading the Christmas story (and Adam introducing himself with the wrong name :)) Our part starts at 10:25. (click the link, not the picture)
After church we headed to Hull for my dad's side of the family. We had great food and enjoyed catching up with many cousins, aunts and uncles. It's hard for the kids to stay contained and entertained in a bank community room watching Great-Grandma open presents, so I apologize for the fort-building that may have occurred with the chairs and the chase scene that happens when it's time to leave. Not going to lie, it might happen again next year.
We got the kids all snug in their beds and Santa got his job done overnight...although the crash we heard at about 11:00pm let us know his confidence in the 3M hooks that hold up the sign where the stockers are hung with care was misguided.
