I have so many more wonderful things happening in my life though. I want to talk about them.
Many many years ago I began to realize how hard it was going to be to get everyone together on Christmas for a family celebration. I wanted all my kids and grandkids and sister and her kids to be able to get together and not have to "share" them with anyone else.
So, it has worked out that usually the Sunday before Christmas we have our Family Christmas Party. Then, on Christmas Day, when everyone needs to visit in-laws, etc., it is working out that Gramma and Grampa drop by and give presents to Grandkids, visit for about an hour, and then everyone is off to the other places they need to go. So far, so good!
Below are a few pictures from our Family Christmas Celebration gathering held on
Don't know what it was that Dave was being congratulated for, but it looks like it was pretty good. And Mitsi, it looks like Baby "K" is beginning to make his/her presence obvious. (We are all so excited!)
Daddy Eric explaining to Ethan to be patient until he shows him how his toy works. (Get used to it Ethan!)
If you ever find yourself in a bad mood, take a look at this pic of little Miss Lilly. Bad mood GONE!
