christmas1This picture was snapped many years ago after the gift unwrapping. The grands are sharing their gifts with the others.

We never hurried to clear the chaos of twenty family members tearing into their gifts. The room was often covered in wrapping paper and ribbon and you had to tread carefully.

Once everyone had their gifts open then they’d huddle to examine the treasures each had received. Such fond memories of the young ones excited about their gifts.

Do you rush to clear the clutter after gift unwrapping? If you do, why not linger and enjoy the moment.

I’m so glad we didn’t rush AND that we snapped such great photos. Be sure to capture the memories.
