This year we stayed at my parents' house on Christmas Eve which was a first. We opened up our gifts ourselves here on Christmas morning and then headed over to the Kits for 3 hours of gift opening. We got some wonderful things. I was blessed to get some scrapbooking stuff which I really needed, some candles, natural soaps, a toaster that also cooks eggs, gift certificates, earings, and a bunch more stuff including 2 World Vision gifts! Jb got, well, mostly books, including this FABULOUS book (go Elizabeth), illustrated below:

Mom opening the calendar that we got her. Each month is a different photo of a different child and their family.
John and I arrived early enough to get the couch for two people! Couch #1 illustrated above features (from back) Katie, Matt, Danielle, and Matt. A blow up of Danielle's shirt is depicted below. It does NOT say what it appears to say, but I thought it did.
Couch #2 features (from back) Grant, Elizabeth, Gabbi, and Ray
Ray with our gift: a Victoria Secret .... er, a gift certificate taped into a V.S. Catalog!
