Christmas is coming the goose is getting fat
Please put a penny in the old mans hat
If you haven't got a penny then a haypenny will do
If you haven't got a haypenny then God bless you

Christmas is definitely different when you have kids. It is fun to see their reaction to things and the wonder. It also proves for a slightly less relaxing holiday. Thankfully Liam woke up around 7:45 this year where as last year it was around 6am. Liam did most of the present opening as Jesse and I just did stockings for each other and one big present. Santa, Mom and Dad brought an assortment of things to Liam, with a general emphasis on books. Christmas morning was spent at my parents watching them open presents and eating sour cream butterhorns. The evening was spent with Jesse's fam having the traditional clam chowder.

In all the hustle and bustle it is hard some time to remember what we are really celebrating. That is why I love the symbolism of Christmas decorations to help remind us about the reason for the season. We hope that you and your family had a meaningful and memorable Christmas this year.
