Of Christmas past

Well Christmas seems like a long time ago…
To long ago to blog about but never the less I shall, because there hasn’t been much more then sickness since then.

We spent Christmas with Eric’s family. Much food was consumed, much laughing, talking, playing games and all things fun! We even stayed over night Christmas Eve. Not Eric’s favorite thing to do but he was a good sport about it. 🙂

The 2 (fighting) stinkers all ready for bed and playing with mini marshmallows. 🙂 They don’t get along well. at. all. Maybe some day.

Christmas morning… waiting, waiting, waiting to open gifts!

Which one is mine? Which one says my name?


Uncle Joel went to great lengths with gifts again this year. Remember last year? He got all those loud toys and things… Well, I think (or I hope) he was scared of the repercussion it would invoke if he did it again so he went with much nicer (quieter) things this time!

May we open it? Hurry, hurry!! Joel was standing there prolonging things for them. 🙂

Everyone tore into their gifts except Reagan, she was so busy looking around at what everyone else had she completely forgot to open her own. 🙂

We spent the rest of the day relaxing… i.e. eating, playing games, sleeping, walking, talking…

These 5 played Settler’s.. I know, you can barely see Berneice but she was there and she beat them one game! 🙂

and… The tribe of Dan.

For the last 2 weeks we’ve enjoyed having Micah stay with us. He spent a lot of his time romancing this young lady, then she actually showed up to meet us all! 🙂

We had fun with her too, as you can see. 🙂

 

The last while we’ve been going, going, going and finally things caught up with us and Reagan got sick. Wed, Thur and Fri we battled a high fever, coughing, barely breathing and just an all around awful time with her. Nights were not for sleeping… I took her to the Dr on Fri and they said she has Trachietis and gave her a steriod shot. She seems to be on the mend, I’m glad we’re on this end of things with her sickness and thankful to God that she is ok. Don’t take your health for granted! (or your sleep for that matter!)

  3. Great post! I love looking at pictures of other people’s Christmas. Fun and family and all. That is just a really good family picture! So, do you ladies just pull rank and say, “We’re doin’ a family picture… line up here!” or do the guys actually cooperate and not mind the ‘hassle’? A family picture is one thing we missed this Christmas… This evening, I thought of a few subjects we missed today. Oh well, we’ll save them for next time. 😉
