Christmas Morning

We sleep over at their house on Christmas Eve. That seems important to everybody although I don't quite understand why. Anyway, we do. Shauna was to sleep with Danica, but Danica gets excited, so Shauna trundled down to the basement to get some peace. We didn't sleep badly in Sha's bed, but when I got up ~6:20 to unknowwhat, JJ was already in the hall, so that was the end of that.

We open gifts by turns, starting with stockings, and this can take quite awhile. We watch what everyone opens although I immediately forget.

The adults mostly get stuff they need or at least practical items that they can use. My gift to Sue's was sheep-skin lined slippers. We gave Shauna an indoor grill, and I was given two hats.

One of my hats. I like it a lot with ear flaps which are good for a Canadian winter.
.I like the other one better but don't have a photo yet.

Another hit

The kids made out very well, but they're good kids and really appreciate their treats. Danica get many little things, including numerous gift cards for this place or that.

Jonathan loved the team jacket we gave him. Team jackets are a big extra above and beyond the regular hockey fees.

But he was truly blown away by his gift from Mom — tickets to a Twenty One Pilots concert (whoever they are).

JJ reacting to the tickets. He got quite emotional.

And the cat rested happily in the detritus between Shauna and Danica on the small couch.

By noon, they were off to their Dad's for part 2. We soon left for home, and I think we all had naps, or tried to.

Your Christmas looks wonderful! Those slippers sound like an ideal cozy gift, but it's watching the kids that is the most fun, I think.

It is so hard to buy for my grandchildren as they have everything...not an exaggeration. The 8 year old got an i-pad this year. Yes it was used, but still! Your wife's headdress is something!!

Yes, and we left for a movie.

Looks like you all had a sweet Christmas!

Sleepvoers are fun!
There was no room at the inn, though! There WAS room at the Holiday Inn for us!
While divorce is tough, two houses with presents are amazing.

A stellar Christmas report. And the Cuppa with slippers is a delight.

And everyone looks to have had a wonderful Christmas exceot perhaps for the sleepover. We traveled to see family as well, but never stay with them as there is limited space and we do like the privacy of a hotel room (no other explanation needed). The grands certainky looked excited and how nice to have captured those moments firsthand. Sending best wishes to all for a Happy New Year.
