This was the year that my kids were old enough for us to stay late enough for most of the party.
This was the year our family played the tree game at Grandma Stone's for the first time.
This was the first year the boys participated in the traditional paper fight after presents have been opened.
This was the year the train came by TWICE for my little enthusiasts.
This was another wonderful year to spend time with Grandpa Bud and Great-Grandma Stone and lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins.
