So the marathon is over. We actually did better than a lot of people were guessing. We started yesterday around 5:00 PM and went until 7:00 AM this morning. We did take one brief break between 3:30 AM and 4:30 AM to help Santa out. Other than that, it was a Gilmore gallimaufry of Greatness. We drank a lot of Dr. Pepper, Egg Nog and ate many a frozen pizza and snacks.
At 7:00 we fell asleep on various couches throughout the room, and then around 8:00 AM, the present opening began. This was a wonderful Christmas, I received many great gifts that I am grateful for...but most of all, I got to spend time with my family. It's been a spectacular day. I thank our Heavenly Father for this time of year that we get to focus on the birth of our Savior.
