a Family Christmas

Because we have a large family, we have multiple Christmas celebrations each year.  At least 5.  Last week was the first of several and we had such a good time just eating, laughing, and being together.

We celebrated with my mother-in-law's family--her brothers and sisters and her Mom (my boys great-grandmother).

This year, all the girls brought a girl gift and all the guys brought a guy gift.  We drew numbers and each person left with something!  It was nice to see what each person received!
Cecil's Mom received a nice lotion/bath gel gift set! 

 I received a gorgeous tealight holder that will actually match my kitchen year-round!

 The boys each got a remote control whirly car that they LOVE!  Here, they are waiting patiently to open their gifts!
I have a lot of pictures from that night, but forgot to ask the other family members if I could post them on the Internet, so I better not...just in case!

Merry Christmas Y'all!
