I think this has been the most peaceful Christmas we have had in 50 years. Jim and I actually sat down and watched "Christmas Carol" with George C Scott yesterday afternoon and this morning arose at 7 a.m. and casually opened our few gifts. It was very relaxing and a very nice time together.
We invited the temple missionary couples that were available to brunch and visited and played games for several hours before we all went home to call our families.
Mike, one of our sons called us as his family was going into see what Santa had left and we stayed with them for a good hour as they opened gifts. We consequently called each of the children and watched them as they opened gifts and enjoyed Christmas surprises. We have actually connected better with each family and grandchild via our Face Time and Skype this year than we have ever before on Christmas. We are so thankful for technology and the many blessings of Christmas and the Savior's birth and life. Hope you all had as delightful day as we have had.
