Merry Christmas!

We will, all 6 Manharts under this roof, be in bed by 9 pm. That tells you about our full Christmas day. Sam and his folks arrived here well after midnight last night. They sat up chatting even later, and Skyler and Reed did not take this into consideration at 5:30 this morning. Here is Sam trying to hold them back from the living room until everyone was ready. I remember this time as absolute torture as a child, waiting for everyone to use the bathroom, walk the dog, make the coffee, and (my dad) SHAVE before they'd let us go downstairs. It's funny to be on the other end.

Skyler, speechless?

Joe, operating on 4 hours of sleep, has plenty of energy for his grandchildren.

Amidst the post-present chaos. Notice Sam?

My beauties. They stayed in these very pjs until bath time.
