I can well imagine that Hoss is eager to hand out the gifts and is proud to do so since it was otherwise Adam's job. Ben is very happy about the gift of his sons and considers it the second best gift. But no wonder he considers his 3 sons the best gift he has ever received. Nicely to read that Hoss and Joe believe in Santa after they saw the footprints in the snow.
Wonderful, short Christmas story – well written!
