Merry Christmas!

 We had another Christmas party this week.  This was a gathering of my family; my dad and stepmom, brother, 2 sisters and their families.  We ended up meeting on a weeknight as we had a terrible time coming up with a date that worked for all.

 To make things easy, we had pizza for supper. You can see that Alaina enjoyed it!

My brother, who doesn't get to see her to often was having fun playing with Alaina.  She wasn't too sure about him!

My Dad and stepmom, opening one of their gifts.

 We have a tradition called Santa letters.  Those who have been naughty during the year get a letter from Santa telling them that he's disappointed in them.  These are some of the recipients of the letters.  They were received by Heather, Nick, Chelsea, Terri, Aaron and Laura.  Aaron actually got one that told him what a good guy he was, which is why Laura is pulling that face in the picture.
As usual, we had a great time and lots of laughs.
......................
I'm going to take a little break over Christmas.  Andy will be home late Sunday night and will be with us for a few days, so I want to be able to enjoy that time.
I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas.  Enjoy the time with family and friends, and don't forget whose birthday we are celebrating!
