Merry Christmas to y'all! We sincerely hope Santa was very, very good to you this year!
Our morning started early, as do the Christmas mornings of all those who have children. Here are a few pics from the morning's festivities:

|Two Happy Boys|
|Sweetie with Two Tired Boys|
|Yes, Grump was there too!|
After the gift opening we all had breakfast, (yummy chocolate oatmeal made by Sweetie), then after that most of us took a nap. This was actually Grump's favorite part of the day, as he slept for three hours!
In the early afternoon Sweetie and Grump went for a nice long walk in the neighborhood. It was very warm here in central Georgia, almost 80 degrees Fahrenheit, so they both got a bit sweaty. But it was very nice to go for a walk, particularly for Grump, who hasn't been able to walk as much ever since he twisted his ankle way back in October.
In the early evening we decided to go get something to eat. We had hoped the local Chinese restaurant, Mandarin, would be open, but it wasn't. However, the Buca di Beppo Italian restaurant at the Riverside Mall was open, so we scooted in there for a very satisfying dinner. Afterwards, back home, we watched The Nightmare Before Christmas DVD, which Kuya had received as a gift.
Finally we went over to our neighbor's house after the kids were in bed to rewatch the amazing Miss Universe contest where Miss Philippines won, (after some inadvertent fuss and bother caused by the host). All in all, it was a great day.
Goodnight y'all. We hope your Christmas Day was as blessed and peaceful as ours.
