Home for Christmas, Part 1

Back home, we attended Christmas Eve services at our church and followed that up with gumbo, potato salad, and Jesus's birthday cake at home with 8 Pourciaus plus Jamie and Chris.  It was great to have Jamie with us again for Christmas Eve.  It's one of our traditions that we missed out on when we traveled last Christmas.  Once the kids were in bed, we put most of the presents under the tree...
And assembled a couple of things for Corinne...
And set up this in our driveway...(Setting it up did not take all night, but we had to wait until first light to get a pic!)
When the kids woke up in the morning we corralled them all in our bedroom and read the Christmas story from the Bible, or in this case the Bible app on Damon's phone...

Then, I took the camera into the living room and Damon released the hounds...
There was a little bit of enthusiasm...

The present Corinne seems so excited about is not even for her...
She finally saw her cradle and high chair...
She absolutely loved them...


Mawmaw gave Watts this costume as his myrrh, or "body" gift...

He was so excited!  Or as he says, becited!
Cille's gold gift from Mawmaw and Pawpaw was a karaoke machine.  It was a big hit...



All the girls got in on the act...
Corinne was "letting it go"...


More Christmas morning fun to come!
