Then we went to my aunt's place across town for another meal. We ended the day at Grandma's where we ate and played some more.
Playing "Minute to Win It" (Has to keep the the eggs on the box and spin around 5 times)

<p>I started and finished wrapping ALL the Christmas gifts last night. I don't remember it ever taking so long in the past. I think I started at 1 am and finished around 3:30 am. Christmas is Sunday for the Painters! Pictured: the end result and my husband (I think it really captures EXACTLY how much he contributed.)
I was happy that we could attend children's service Sunday morning. I was a little disappointed that the kids did not sing, but it was cute nonetheless. I mean who can't help but smile watching confused small children looking upon the adults for guidance in the next dance move or help but laugh at the occasional collision of directionally challenged youngsters?
The evening after the funeral, we has a nice meal with the family and played cards. And, despite going to bed late and 5-ish hours of sleep the night before, I sprang out of bed at 7 am. I got to have breakfast with Pop and some of the family. He seemed much better than the day before.
While we rode down with M&S, we came back with Rose and Jim. We left for Charleston at 9. We took a two hour pit stop in Tennessee where we stopped to see Opry Land. I had never been there before. It was really impressive with oversized decorations.
We got back to Charleston at 7:30 pm and got home around 9. (We had to stop for groceries.) I got to talk with my brother who was dog-sitting briefly before bed.
