We had a wonderful Christmas!!!  And I hope everyone else did too!!


Here is the order of our Christmas day:

8:00-8:30…the last person woke up. I believe that the younger ones were up early  Of course! 

9:45-10:00…breakfast was started–we had quiche and donut muffins. Yum! 

11:10…we started opening our stockings.  We usually go one at a time starting at the youngest.

11:40…we started opening our presents…also going one at a time.  We like it that way, so it will take longer and so we can see what our siblings got.  A few times we all tore into one.

2:00ish…presents are all opened; we start putting all the food into the ovens that we prepared the day before.  Then we all go and read our new books, play with our new toys, or paint with our new paints.

5:30…we eat dinner.  Ahhh…it was so good!   Gourmet potatoes, ham, sweet potato casserole, stuffing, seven layer salad, sweet potato rolls, green bean casserole, corn casserole, coconut cream pie, pumpkin pie, peanut butter pie, and apple pie.

6:something…we get dishes done, after that it is time to feed the goats, and then we either play games or go enjoy our presents some more.


Here are some pictures of Christmas day:
