I was woken up by my niece booking up the stairs to her parents room as the sun was just peeking out over the horizon. I wanted to go back to sleep but I knew that wasn't an option. My mom knocked on the door and told me that the girls were up and ready to open gifts. "The sun isn't even up yet" I said. It was a losing battle. You can't reason with little girls on Christmas morning. It was a great Christmas morning and I loved watching my nieces open their gifts. I received some excellent gifts (thanks everyone) too. Plus the view of the pond is nice while drinking coffee. Merry Christmas everyone!
