Christmas Eve dinner was not so tiring after all. After cooking pork roast, barbeque ribs, spaghetti with meatballs, roast chicken, fish with garlic and jalapeno, and my son's favorite mashed potato, I found that I could still participate with my family and guests to eat dinner. At 8:30 p.m. we started dinner. We were supposed to eat earlier but one guest was late due to unbelievable traffic - according to him. After dinner, Ethan was so anxious to open his gifts. Okay, I said. I would not want to wait until midnight for we still have to go to church in the morning. Here is a picture of what was under our tree.

Ethan took forever to open his gifts. We helped him read the gift tags and he was ever so careful in opening the gifts - a far cry from my son's tendency to rip off wrappers. Ethan commented on each and every gift he received. I gave him a paint set complete with easel and canvas and he said that that was what he really wanted after having just said the same thing with his aunt's gift of a Ben10 toy. Diplomatic, right? Here is Ethan opening his gifts.

We then started to open our gifts too. As they ooh-ed and aah-ed on what they received, my kids started to label the "champion" gifts. By this time I was so sleepy- what with my taking an anti-histamine pill (allergic rashes) and my marathon cooking. As the clock struck 12 I hit the sack after setting the alarm at 6:00 a.m.
