Family from across the country (CA, IA, KY) gathered here in Durham. Opened envelope with gender of our first child on Christmas day (it's a boy!). Celebrated a mini-baby shower with family and a couple friends on Saturday. Today was just relaxing and enjoyed one another's company...May get to a museum for the niece and nephew Monday or Tuesday, then nursery prep rest of the week! These are the reasons why this is the most wonderful time of the year, eh? Savoring time with loved ones.
