Hello! I hope you enjoyed a long, relaxing holiday weekend!
I wanted to share with you 12 Pictures from our Christmas:
On Christmas Eve, church was so crowded we sat up in the choir loft:
After church we had my mom’s side of the family over for dinner, she made this cake for dessert:
(red velvet with cookie dough filling, topped with doughnut hole snowmen!)
There was an intense game of Left, Right, Center and many quarters won (and lost):
Layla greeted our guests with bells on:
(hosting is hard work!)
Christmas morning came, stockings first!
Layla wished Christmas could be every day:
But it sure is tiring…
We went to my Aunt Mary’s for dinner with my dad’s side of the family:
(family photo minus lots and lots of missing cousins)
My oldest brother and his fiancé flew in for Christmas early on 12/26 so we reenacted Christmas morning – Christmas take 2!
They gave my brother, Pat, Chirps – chips made with crickets – 1 cricket per chip… their slogan “eat what bugs you”
(actually quite tasty and made in an attempt to find alternate food sources for the future)
Walter got a man crate – a very difficult to open wooden crate, with treats inside… their slogan “if at first you don’t succeed, pry, pry again”
Another wonderful Christmas in the books!
