Christmas Eve - a month later

We spent Christmas Eve at Mama Jeanne and Papa Mark's house.  It was our second Christmas with Chris and her kids as part of our family.  It was even better than last year.  We enjoyed a meal of appetizers.  I love this because it's so much more laid back than trying to get all the kids to sit down and eat while awaiting the excitement of the presents.

As people were munching we kicked off the festivities with a game of Name that Celebrity. 

#1 was by far the most difficult.

Chris' daughter Emilee and my daughter Victoria.
I wish I had a picture from 1983 to insert here!

Johnny and Teagan. It was nice to get to know her better.
I have a feeling she'll be Auntie Teagan soon.

We made gingerbread houses at the end of the evening.
The kids loved it!

Christian + Frosting = Bliss

The girls joined in in Name the Celebrity.
They said they didn't know what to write.
We told them to write all the words they know how.
I think they each got to about #6 then looked at each other like that.

I passed down my Soon to be Mrs. Humphrey
shirt to Chris:)

Silly faces!

He's the only one who wanted to eat it!

Name the Celebrity

Every year after Christmas I think about how it was different from the rest.
 Every year I think how this year was the best.
I wonder how many more years it will continue to get better and better.

  1. That was really cute. I think the problem with posting so late is that you forget the stories. And when I say "you" I mean "us". My Christmas blog was also mostly photos and FEW stories.

    (And, BTW, you used TWO pictures twice--think I'm the only one who noticed?)
