I definitely need the structure of school days. I am not getting much accomplished this holiday!
We had a quiet Christmas morning compared to years we are with my family and have all the aunts, uncles and cousins under one roof. Vivian did pretty well with fewer people, though, and even reasonably tolerated the afternoon when we gathered with all of Robert's family at his mom's house to exchange gifts and have Christmas dinner.
Here are some pictures from our Christmas Day:

One of the best parts about Christmas: hanging out with your cousin
