We hope you all had a very merry Christmas. The Dunn household was full of excitement. We staid in town for Christmas. Robbie's sister came in from Texas. We spent a lot of time with his family. My parents were in Orlando. We will celebrate Christmas with my side of the family in South Carolina over New Years. That's one way to spread out Christmas. There is nothing more magical than children at Christmas. Our tradition is that we all put on matching jammies on Christmas Eve. Open a special ornament to put on the tree the night before Christmas. Then we read the Christmas story of the baby Jesus and set out cookies for Santa and head off to bed. Then the work begins for mommy and daddy. We don't put one thing under our tree until the morning of Christmas. It's just fun to see their eyes light up when they see all of the presents. Some are wrapped and some are not. We let the kids open their stuff and while they are playing with their new toys, Robbie and I open our stuff. Then we eat donuts and milk and play the rest of the day. I had to work half of the day. But the boys went to Granny's for Christmas dinner. We have a lot of special times at our home. We hope you all do the same.
