  2. Playing card games.
  3. Relaxing.
  4. Turning off my cell phone.

    I wanted to let you know that I am praying for my blogger friends. I pray that 2008 will bring you a better year than 2007. I pray that God will shower his wonderful riches up on you, your family and ministry as well. I love you blog brother. It is a wonderful post today. Keep up the wonderful job you do.
    In Him,

    1. Watching people open presents. (My in-laws found out through their Christmas gifts that they’re going to be first-time grandparents this summer – NOT by my wife and I – :( – Maybe soon… pray about that for us)

    2. Cooking for family.

    3. Teaching Bible class the Sunday before Christmas.

    There’s three – and Trey, your mom is going to be very aggravated about your #10.

    in HIS love,

    1. waking my seven year old up and reminding her it is christmas morning.

    2. cooking the dinner with my husband while our daughter kept our friend kevin occupied by showing him every gift she received.

    3. an easy evening of playing with our christmas presents and games and eating pie and candy.

    your #7 sounded brilliant…

  7. TREY MORGAN says:

    Thanks Kenny

    John – I’m forwarding all my fruitcake on to you, brother.

    Nick – Praying. As for #10 – I’m not sure about my mom, but Lea wasn’t real crazy about the whole sled thing.

    Brian – I think it’s much more fun with small children.

    Leslie – loved your #1

    Great slide show! Looks like fun!

    1. Watching 4 excited children opening gifts.

    2. Spending family time at a leisurely pace.

    3. David and I riding around Christmas morning looking for breakfast…only to return home and have him cook for me..

    Forgot to add my list

    2 is all i can come up with,

    had Christmas dinner with part of my family,

    and then played checker with my DH :)

  10. mmlace says:

    1. Eating Christmas dinner with my family.

    2. Some time away from work…just some time to slow down. I don’t get enough quiet time. I enjoyed the two hour drive home by myself, (weird, I know, that I actually enjoy driving…bummer that gas is $3/gallon) I like the fact that I can sing w/the radio or pray or just enjoy some peace and quiet.

    3. Getting to watch my nephew open his gifts. He’s 3. He’s precious.

    Sounds like you all had a wonderful holiday w/lots of fun. Thanks for sharing the pics!

  11. Greg says:

    The biggest part of Christmas has always been giving gifts to my children. This year, though, we didn’t give as much but I thoroughly enjoyed the couple of times we were all together. I miss having my children close by and together.

  12. WendyC says:

    seeing my very blase almost 13 year old scream for joy at her present – tickets to a season of Shakespeare. She actually thought it was one play – she screamed more when she found it was 3!

    being very blessed when my darling husband did all the cooking on Christmas day (I was ill). It just reinforced how lucky I am

    having family to share it with! my brother and his wife and child came to share it with us. It is so good having relatives living in Australia – for almost 20 years we didn’t have any family here!

  13. Brie says:

    1. Watching my baby have his first Christmas on the outside. He liked the lights…and the tissue paper…

    2. Getting back in our house after almost two weeks without power after the ice storm.

    3. Watching my in-laws spoil said baby rotten. They’re in their seventies, but you’d never know it if you just watch them when they’re with Noah.

  • it's still early. :)
  • no worries. Luke is a very popular gospel during the Christmas season. 😜 #BabyJesusStory
  • Mitch Moreland has a combined 1.6 WAR since the start of 2011 at a premium position (DH/1B). That position needs to produce.
  • definitely don't disagree with that. We will miss his glove. But he had such a quiet bat for someone at first base.
  • I only disliked him when he was at the plate.
