The kids awoke to a fire ablaze in the fireplace, stuffed stockings and presents under the tree.
According to tradition, the festivities begin with the dumping of the stockings.
In his stocking, Bishop received a Cardinals t-shirt commemorating his first time attendance of a baseball game. Now he has something appropriate to wear to next years games.
Then began package distribution which was done by Maceo, this years designated "wise man."
He was such a thoughtful and charming host.
Christian received a special 5-in-1 tool kit for his 72-hour emergency pack, clothes,
and these really hip glasses, gunnar glasses that are intended to help relieve eye strain for those who are on the computer a lot.
From Grandmama, Aunt Christie, and crew, he got his really cool book that has biographical sketches regarding Black Americans who have served in Congress. It is unbelievable!
Maceo received football-related video games, a football,
and Carolina Panthers gear. He is so proud of this shirt!
Bishop received an air soft gun, an r/c helicopter (which was a huge hit)
and Broncos gear. (We are a football loving family!)
Bishop has declared this to be a great Christmas, "one of the best ever, even the cat (who received special treats) thinks so!"
It was a beautiful day and a very Merry Christmas!
