Everyone arrived by 8am and we gathered in the living room to begin opening our gifts. The biggest surprise was Jim and I received a 42" LCD Flat Screen TV from Jack, Jennifer, Jeremy and Jonathan. After opening the gifts the boys set up the new TV and then watched a movie for awhile. We went to Watertown around 1pm to spend some time with the rest of the family at Mom's house. This was our first Christms without Dad and it was a little sad. We arrived back home about 6 pm and started getting things packed up for the trip to Ohio tomorrow.

The week before Christmas Jim and Cathy and the boys went to the Christmas Tree farm and cut their own tree. They thought they were getting a small one but once it thawed out it was huge. After some struggling to get it in the house and then having to buy a new tree stand because the one they had was too small the tree was finally up and decorated-and it's a beauty.
