Louisa and Elsie left in the wee hours of the morning to be with Joe's mom and dad. Bergetta's father, Stanley, passed away yesterday after several months of gradually failing health. Joe and Matt left after Joe was done with his Christmas day services. So those four got to open their gifts last night. Matt also had some gifts for others that they opened last night while he was still here.
The six youngest kids and I had a relatively quiet Christmas day today, opening the remaining gifts.

And yes, Sophie Irene's picture ought to be here, but alas, she didn't want to pose with the tree.
