Christmas at our house.

Happy Christmas to all of you. I hope everyone had as nice a timeas we did. We are so blessed in so many ways, but having such a huge and wonderful family is the blessing I am most thankful for.

We had a lovely Christmas here. It was our turn to have Keiths side of the family to dinner. We had 22 people for dinner and a couple more came later for dessert.

My son sits back looking contentedly full! Dec 25th was also his 23rd birthday.



My neice and her dad test the 'spoon sticks to the nose" theory.



For the past three years, we have swapped photo album pages instead of gifts. Here my sisters in law look at some of this years contributions.

Many happy returns to all.

Merry Christmas to you and your family (although it's come and gone already). Best wishes for a blessed New Year.

Your pictures are always so enjoyable to look at, whether family photos or the outdoor scenery photos. I really am going to try adding more photos to my blog. I still have many more pictures to add from our holiday. If I don't hurry up, I'll forget what we did!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I hope that 2011 is a great year for you and your family.

I couldn't find your email or facebook to send you a message about all the changes that have taken place. But I'm by pretty regularly picking up the kids, someday, I'll stop when it's not the holiday season so we can catch up a bit.
Hugs
Joe
