Dave's family celebrated on Christmas Day out at Bruce and Penny's. We opened gifts first - this takes an hour at least! - and then we ate, and ate, and ate some more. I think I remember this being a problem last year too. :) Note to self, don't beat yourself up too much over the numbers on the scale. You have absolutely NO CHANCE when your sister-in-law brings homemade fudge to family Christmas. No chance. It just isn't fair.
In between trips to the snack bar heavily loaded counter of treats, we played games all afternoon.
Here are a few of my favorite pics of the day. Dave did most of the photography this time - I was too busy stuffing my face loading batteries in all the toys. So sorry, you won't see him in any of these shots.
Sonja, looking good and due in 2 weeks!
Toni gave me a gorgeous silver necklace - thanks, Toni!
and there were lots of shoes!
We had a wonderful day with Dave's family. Merry Christmas, everyone!
I am a mother of 3 boys and a girl, married to the man of my dreams. My blog is just an attempt to consciously reflect on the goodness of the Lord in our lives, each and every day. I don't want to forget these wonderful years!
