Great Grandmother's house

Every year since we were little girls, we went to Grandmother's house on Christmas afternoon at 4:00 sharp. We open gifts and eat Christmas dinner. I am so glad that Rowan and Lydia are able to share in this family tradition, and I hope they will have memories of it for years to come.

Everyone sits in roughly the same places each year. Grandmother in her red rocking chair, Alex and Liv on the couch, Em and I somewhere on the floor in front of the fire place.

Dad sits in the green chair, and Uncle Frank sits behind him. Harry and Sarah sit on the small loveseat on the opposite side of the room, and Gene and Carley sit in the floor near the Christmas tree.

Dad's gifts are always interesting:) Em, below, is trying on this year's gift.
