Number of times she said "in a little bit": 16

Number of times they asked if there was more to open: 7

Number of presents we got my mom and step-dad: 4

Number of presents they got us: 15

Number of times I had to remind my kids to say thank you: 2,957

You forgot the critical stat - Number of naps snuck in before the end of the year. After all, that is what bowl games were invented for.

I always fret about not buying the grandparents as much as they buy us, too. But it looks like everyone had a great Christmas! Even the dog was good....,
