Our First Family Christmas

We didn’t get on a plane this year – we aren’t driving anywhere for the holidays.

In fact, this is the first year we haven’t traveled somewhere for the holidays … well, I guess, ever! This is the real classic Christmas for us – from the red brick fireplace with 4 stockings, a Christmas tree with piles of inexpensive yet thoughtful gifts underneath, bikes for the boys and a play kitchen for the girl.

And yes, in case you’re wondering – I put the bikes together myself. I feel it’s kinda a rite of passage for a father of boys (read: I’m too cheap to spring for the $25 assembly fee). I just made that up tonight, but I like it …

Christmas Eve … actually Christmas Day, now … 12:45 AM and Santa’s getting tired. Merry Christmas from the Griffins!
