Wishful, wonderful, we had a beautiful breakfast around the Christmas tree. After everyone popped their crackers open Momma and Daddy reigned over the present chaos. We gave each child three presents to represent the gifts of the Magi to the Christ child. If that sounds stingy, think of coordinating 3X8!!!!! Plus something special for Daddy. At least 24 presents.
I was most thankful for the way they all helped each other put their gifts together and made sure each of them opened their presents from each other. Yes, there was crazy ripping, but no one showed a selfish ounce, even when there were no "I-pods", and that to me was the best present of all.
