The baking has all been done and the presents are all wrapped, so we are ready to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior. I am a little nervous. Because my son is 12 (and a half) we are moving into the more mature gifts so the gifts are smaller and more expensive. As David sees less presents and asks "is this a remote control car" I have explained that we have not purchased him any cars or trucks, since he has a room full. We have also let him know that the gifts are more expensive because he is older so he will be receiving fewer gifts, but that we have not spent less. He did say he understands and he always loves what we get him, so it will be fine.
This picture is the picture we have sent in our Christmas cards. Rich took this year's picture, since I was the one who took the last five years' pictures. Didn't he do a great job?
