At Christmas We... used to go to Elmira every year. The girls would have Christmas at Grandma's house. They would all dress up in matching Christmas outfits and see Santa (a.k.a. Uncle Frankie... who, by the way, still plays Santa to this day).
At Christmas We... used to put up the Christmas Tree in the basement. And the girls used to hang all the ornaments. My job was simply opening them up and passing them out.
At Christmas They.... used to love each other... pretty much unconditionally.
At Christmas We... used to hang the stockings along the bannister.
At Christmas They... used to wake up ridiculously early and wait at the top of the stairs for the all clear to come down.
At Christmas She... used to get excited about simple little things like slipper socks...
At Christmas We... gather in the family room, around the tree, and open stockings first... then presents. We eat a turkey dinner, watch the parade on television, and eventually go out to see a first run movie. Some things have changed over the years. Some things have stayed the same. I haven't caught a decent Christmas photo of my girls in years... hopefully this will be the year to remedy that.
