Christmas morning at the Gather Little by Little household
Just a quick post to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Our kids had mercy on us this year and allowed us to sleep in until 7:30! Something about Christmas morning that always amazes me is how quickly it’s over. Within 1/2 an hour all of the presents were open and the kids were off and playing. Of course my wife and I had to assembly a few things and remove the packaging from a few items which kept us busy for a bit.
But now everyone is off and playing, I’m writing this, my wife is reading a book and the smell of Christmas dinner is beginning to flow through the house. We’ll spend the remainder of the afternoon relaxing and enjoying the day. We’ll eat Christmas dinner, and then read the original Christmas story found in Luke 2:1-20.
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.
I’m taking the next few days off, but I’ll be back on Monday. I uploaded a few more pics of our Christmas morning over on my flickr page as well.
