We tried going to church on Christmas morning for the first time in a while (ever?) to mixed reviews. The kids were upset that they didn't get to "sleep in", which was kind of hilarious since they came upstairs and woke us up in the morning. We had a simple breakfast and then off to church and back for "brunch" with Grandma and Janice, before opening presents. As usual there was much excitement over new possessions. Matthew in particular was most excited to receive a toolbox and has carried it everywhere (including to bed). In the evening the cousins came over and there was much energy as they all ran around burning off the morning's candy intake before supper and the cousin gift exchange.
