It's been enjoyable being home for Christmas break. Visiting with family was nice on Christmas day itself. The little ones enjoy opening their presents a bit at a time and seem to enjoy the things I purchased. A few have not been instant favorites although some have been a bigger hit than I anticipated. The best part of break has been sleeping in as late as we want and doing pretty much nothing. Of course, that means I did not finish the books I wanted to read or other productive things. But I figure, it's vacation--I'll have opportunity to be productive later.
