Someday I hope to have a table that will accommodate 12 people so we can all eat and laugh together. Until then, we make the best of it.

The hot chocolate station is ready for later. The candles are lit.

DSC00222The Christmas Story is ready. We are ready for the two day Christmas celebration to begin. This will be our first Christmas with the new family members Kris added this year, and we are very excited that we can all celebrate together. Schedules are hectic and time together is precious.

Such beauty at the young adult table. And the wisdom of the other adult table. 🙂

What a fun night. Now we are ready for the Sunday celebration with the Huffman family.

Our youngest family members…for now. Congratulations to Matt, Terri, and Owen. There will be a new addition next year. Owen and Olivia had fun with the Pinterest inspired photo backdrop, and Jackson loved the props!

Our White Elephant/homemade gift exchange is always fun.

 

And all were good sports as we played Holiday Family Feud.

 

 

 

 

WWe are so blessed to have all our family together over the past two days. No, it is not Christmas Day, but we have learned to celebrate Jesus and family everyday we can. Merry Christmas to all!
