A Journal, with Pictures

Christmas Day

by on Dec.27, 2011, under Family

Everyone arrived at Grandma and Grandpa’s house at 8:30 Christmas morning filled with excitement. It was apparent that Santa had stopped and left lots of gifts during the night. What then ensued could best be described as a childrens gift frenzy. Packages were ripped open, paper was flying, gifts of clothes were quickly tossed aside with everything accompanied by much screaming. As I watched I could only think is this the true meaning of Christmas? Once the children’s gifts were opened, they began to play with and examine what Santa had brought them, while the parents and grand parents exchanged gifts.


Grandma then prepared brunch for us all before everyone started to either play with or set up their gifts.

Grandma then prepared Christmas Dinner, while the playing and entertainment continued at a high level. There was time for a few more Christmas pictures when the children were ready for dinner, then we all enjoyed our Christmas feast.

After dinner more playing and family time then the children got into their Christmas PJ’s for one last photo and they were off to their Villa’s. Grandma and Grandpa relaxed and enjoyed desert and the sound of silence alone, then went to bed exhausted from a very active day.

Monday everyone played and enjoyed family. Gil and Brenn went to the airport Grandson learned about Grandpa’s airplane. They had lunch and went to a movie. The rest of the family had lunch and went to The Sand Box a children’s activity center. Pizza for dinner and of course lots of time on the new computers and playing with other toys. Tuesday the Prados left early and Wednesday the Montgomerys headed back for Florida. It was a great Christmas family holiday.
