Christmas 2004 went surprisingly well for my family. The day got off to an extremely early start, with Toby and Adam both waking up before 3:00 a.m. Really for the first time the boys were aware of the concept of opening presents under the tree. Toby became obsessive about it and ended up opening some of Adam's presents too. That didn't bother Adam a bit; he only wanted his share of the swag. The boys played indoors all day, with the exception of a couple of relatively brief car rides. Adam may have had the best day of his life, while Toby certainly had a very good day. We even had a dusting of snow on our roof, something that is extremely rare in South Louisiana.

I'd wondered how things went. Of course you played inside, it's freaking cold out there! Glad the day went so well, and I hope that you have a good birthday tomorrow. Maybe the boys will carry forward that good feeling on the trip.

My youngest really got into Christmas this year, too. Every gift he said, "Ooooh! My pay-brit! (favorite)." Its so cold here that the kids can't go outside and play in all the fun snow that fell a few days ago.

Glad your holiday went well.

Snow on the roof in Louisiana. Sounds like the making of a song. Glad the kids feel they got enough.
