first christmas for maximus

Trying to come up with the perfect gift, wishing I would have started earlier and swearing I will next year (but kind of knowing I will procrastinate again), using gifts and Santa as incentives to get my kids to listen, stressing myself out by trying to make stuff that would be easier and cheaper to buy... sure all those things make me feel like Christmas is here. But when I really feel like the holidays have come is when my brother and his wife come into town and we break out Settlers of Catan, consume large amounts of snacks and Martinellis, let the kids fend for themselves, and stay up until ridiculous hours of the morning.
So, Maximus, welcome to your first Christmas. Welcome to our family traditions.

Wish I was there to play settlers and get really mad. :) Welcome for sure.
