Mmmm...

This morning they came...
I don't know who was more excited to see those people... Sam, me or Shiloh!

Before we opened presents from each other, our kids and their spouses had to see what Santa brought...
Santa had a feeling that Ryan would want a book that Rob Carmack and Doug Walker wrote.

Later we opened presents for and from each other (we chose names)...
Laura drew my name! Here she's giving me my treasure...
It was a wonderful present... a book, a journal, and an ornament that she made! Laura knows I love all those things!

Speaking of Laura and me, here's a picture I love...
And here I am with Sam...
That's Sam (up there). Right after we opened gifts he started cooking the famous Carmack Christmas breakfast...
Then he got some help...
Sam is working on the pancakes, Ryan is frying the bacon, Will the eggs, and John is cooking the gravy, for the biscuits which were in the oven.
(Man, I love it when men cook!)

While that was going on, Caroline and Anna were with Shiloh...
Well, there was a door between them... but Shiloh was excited because he knew that soon he could eat the leftovers left over on the floor when the meal was over.

Oh, here are two pictures of the breakfast buffet...
(John was being so patient!)

Oh, here is a good picture...
Those are three precious gals, huh?

Here's a very special picture...
That is actually Caroline singing (!) "Born on Christmas Day" by Brad Paisley... and accompanied by her dad, John. We had to listen carefully.... but oh, it was beautiful.
Caroline knew every word... and had perfect pitch... and well, she had preciousness all over it!!!

As I look at my pictures for today, I don't see one of Andrew!
He was too busy eating, or playing, or somehow else avoiding the camera!
He will not get away with it.
Here he is at Halloween...
Today he wore a beautiful Christmas vest, with Christmas trees on it.
I have a feeling he likes that Superman outfit better. Hmm.

Well, you may have noticed that I wore that Santa hat today.
I love Santa hats.
(A good Santa hat covers a multitude of bad hairs!)
