Christmas Eve

As one might imagine Southern Man spent most of Christmas Eve on the couch with his leg propped up so most of these pics were by Teen Daughter. The long-time family tradition has been to gather at the Ancestral Manor on Christmas Eve so it was, as always, a large and merry gathering with much eating and chatting and reading from the Christmas story (as recounted by Saint Luke) and a generally wonderful time.

Another family tradition - Southern Sister stuffing the stockings. Southern Man usually stuffs with a favorite drink and a book.

What's Christmas Eve without a little Star Wars? Southern Son watching - well, geek points if you can identify the film from the screen shot.

Two of the Southern Cousins admire their gifts.

It's the most wonderful time of the year. Lord, thank you for sending us Your Son. Amen.
