Here are my favorite moments:

Tumbling out of bed to sit down to Christmas Breakfast and passing around the presents to open.

Christmas Eve lunch with all the family– Great Grandparents included.

There were uneventful moments, reading books, fixing up meals, just lounging around …

photos:  Jodi, Jobay & Micah ready for lunch, with my oldest friend Jenon–my Christmas-sister,  family photo together in the backyard (thanks Jodi!!), Charlotte on her post-Chritmas book shopping trip, Laurel and Charlotte check out the much anticipated Christmas wreath at Grandma Honey’s house. Brian showing off his Wisconsin Christmas mug, 2 grand-girls with the welcome home sign.

So thankful for the days with all these faces–and for the wacky, riotous, sweet times together.  It was a merry Christmas.

P.S.– Thanks Jodi for all the photos I lifted off your Drop Box!!

  1. What a wonderful week you have had with family…such great pictures! Thank you for sharing with us! And to your Brian…all I can say is FIGHT ON…LOL! Happy New Year to you all…hope we can fit in another lunch sometime!

  2. Gorgeous. Love the emphasis on family over the festive season. Definitely a time to give thanks and acknowledge how blessed we are! The food looks gorgeous – and we ended up playing quite a few games with the nieces and nephews too, lots of fun! Sending you blessings for 2016. Thanks for sharing these happy memories with us xx

    • Hey Kat– we did have a riotous ball! And as soon as the last kids pulled out of the driveway, I took a 5 hour nap!! Looking forward to another year of eating around the country with you in 2016! xo
