Then Rob and I looked in our stockings and the boys showed us what they had in their stockings, since that’s the one thing they can look at before Rob and I get up.

Family got here and we enjoyed visiting. We ate a lovely meal of homemade pasta, sauce, meatballs, and bread. Then, the best part (especially for the kids) opening gifts from our family gift swap. Here’s my nephew who was super excited.
