Catherine was the first of us to wake up this morning, and shortly thereafter she woke me up: “It’s daytime, Papa! It’s Christmas day!” I returned the greeting with a kiss and a little joke: “Merry Kiss-mas!” Catherine went and woke Rebecca and Esme up, and then we all headed downstairs.
Opening stockings was the first order of business.
After stockings, it was the traditional breakfast of waffles. Very filling!
After breakfast, it was time to start opening presents. Here’s Nonni opening her new printer/scanner/copier.
Of special note to Build Guild folks was the knitted mustache that Rebecca made for me:
Catherine actually got a bit overwhelmed with the gift opening, so we’re taking a break right now. We’ll have some lunch, possibly some naps, and open the rest of the gifts later. Corey and Vicky will be here later on today for more celebration.
So far it’s been a great Christmas day – and a great first Christmas for Esme!
