It becomes time for Corbin to open presents and all the kids crowd him to watch, their fingers twitching because they want to rip some of the wrappings themselves. The presents get opened with "ahh!"s and "Oooh!"s for each one.
Playtime, the kids all get to sample and play with Corbin's booty. The adults converse. Then comes the cupcakes and the children ingest their sugar highs for the rides home.
Everything done, bonding completed, the guests bundle up and head out. It's so much easier when you're the grandparent, I must say.
A great time with lots of fun and tugs on the heartstrings.
A normal level of peace will now blanket the house for a few days until Christmas arrives.
Thanks everybody for the great day.
