Here I am with Timothy and Gabe on Christmas morning. According to our (recent) family tradition, we open our gifts late in the morning after the Evraets arrive (they open their presents at home first). So here we are all cheery--anticipating what is to come very soon... Another one of our traditions (for many, many years) is for Tim to read the Christmas story from the Bible before the gift frenzy begins. Our children have sat patiently and waited (not always happily) and this tradition has become one of our favorite parts of Christmas. As you can see...Timothy was not quite so patient and not so happy either.
