Fun and Family, what a great combination. Christmas day was such a nice time of relaxing and enjoying time with my extended family. Life gets so crazy, but times like this are the glue that hold us together.
The gifts are under the tree, just waiting for the kids to open them. We started a tradition many years ago with opening gifts on Christmas morning. We didn’t want the kids to engage in a fanatical rip fest of opening presents. So The Inventor goes first each year and picks a gift to GIVE to someone else in the family. That person opens the gift, and picks someone to GIVE the next gift to. This way the emphasis is on giving more. It has worked out so nicely, I really enjoy watching everyone get so excited to give someone a gift.
Candy for the Inventor and a fruitcake (that actually looked delicious) for Grandpa.
The Inventor making a fruit salad for the family, and SportTman eating it as she makes it…..typical boy! 🙂
Grammy and her grandson
My niece with her new princess tea set, and does she ever make some delicious tea!
The ham was such a ham and insisted on having his picture taken………..ok, ok, I know that was bad. But the ham was delicious, it’s from the Honey Baked Ham Co.
Here is my whole family…..sometimes it’s hard to believe that we are old enough to be at the big parent/adult table! No longer sitting at the kid’s table, burping and blowing milk out through our noses! 🙂
And no holiday seems complete in our house, if one of the kids isn’t doing some kind of sport! So here is SportTman at his holiday basketball tournament. He had 2 games on the 26th and 2 on the 27th!
