07:59 am - Christmas dinner 2012 and presents!
Ely is taking the picture. Ben and Rebeca are about to arrive. Robert is the gentleman on the left with the beard. Maya's mother, Willow, is at the far end, left. And there's Grandpa Bob, home from the hospital and feeling pretty good!
Ollie opening his first present
It was a truck from Christina's parents! That was the only present he needed.
Oh yes, there were other people opening presents too! Reanna got a ukelele from Steve!
There were so many thoughtful gifts. It was all so lovely. We did things differently this year, because Ely and Christina couldn't arrive until 3 PM, and neither could Ben and Rebeca. So "Christmas day" began with dinner, then gifts in the evening. It was perfectly fine to do it that way. I don't know if we could get away with that once Ollie is older and has a hard time waiting. I guess presents could be opened throughout the day. That might be nice. And next year we'll have another little one. Ely and Christina will have a 7 month old!
