As usual, we hosted a family Christmas with Jenn's family, visited my parents' place for my mom's family Christmas, and shared a family Christmas with the Hopwoods. New this year, we enjoyed a really good brunch with Jenn's immediate family, my parents, and our neighbor, Mrs. Hillegas. Jenn's house and meal prep was fantastic, as well as her help getting the tree up. Confession: I enjoy decorating for Christmas less and less every year. I love Christmas, I'm not a humbug, but the setup is exhausting and short-lived. Thankfull, Jenn and the kids were able to be helpful this year.
The kids were as excited as any Christmas. Lincoln got a telescope, and he's been taking excellent care of it in addition to checking out stars on clear nights.
