Christmas Eve Fun!

What fun it's been to be all together again! We don't know if next year will bring us the same, so we are happy for the time we have.

Here is our latest Christmas card photo...

We thought we'd add a little White Christmas charm to the Jammie photos this year!

...and of course we need to include Dad...who is a bit Horizontal this year. He had his right total knee replacement last week and is doing well. He just hangs around enjoying this time of rest and recuperation. So far so good!














Then, of course there are those great "Sister Moments". These two girls have a bond never to be broken. Lainey loves it when Annie is around.




And the brotherly love is shown in total antics during the night...this time in the form of marshmallow throwing-and catching-in Drew's mouth, of course!







...almost










....nearly!!!


















...............GOT IT!!!!!!



What form!


And then, the whole discussion, in detail, about how to organize for this year's jammie photos...


Here's what we came up with:




Okay, the girls have got the right idea, but the boys?????






Let's try something else!












Posing with Dad's walker???



Maybe not!




NEXT!!











Now that Jay is part of the family, we can make a full pyramid!








Welcome to the chaos, Jay!

Are you sure you know what you're getting into?


















Tallest to shortest is always a hit!

















Closer-Up























Now THIS is what it's all about...

Family. Unity. Love. Togetherness.

Happiness. Warmth.

Merry Christmas Everyone
