Typically - we and the kids open the gifts from the kids on Christmas Eve.  Then on Christmas Morning - we open the gifts from Santa.

Ahhhh - The Deserts!

Mom, Mike, Chandra, Gabby, Joanie and I, Shaun, Kelly, Nicole and her friend Mary Curry, Natalie and Patrick celebrated Christmas Eve at our house.  We had a nice meal then we broke out all the gifts from the kids.
