OUR BIG FAMILY CHRISTMAS……

The Saturday before Christmas we host OUR BIG FAMILY CHRISTMAS at our home.  It is a great time for everyone.  Here are a few photos from the party.  I didn’t take many photos this year during the holidays.  I don’t have a single picture from my cookie exchange party

There was some massive amounts of connect four going on all night.  

It was a long, loud and fun night!!!  I had to get up the next morning and be at church by 7:00am to sell cookies.  Needless to say I was late!  Argh…only by 15 minutes though.   I finally crawled into bed around midnight and the party was still going strong at our house without me.   I put my ear plugs in and went to sleep.  I woke to a noise at 2:00am and found Erik doing something in his room.  Not sure what.  I told him to go to bed and the house was finally quiet!!

It was a wonderful time with family.  I am so truly blessed………………
