Our family party this year was a few days after Christmas. We wanted to wait for Bill and Shellie to join us from Albuquerque. It was a great time as usual. It was great seeing everyone. Greg had to work this year and we sure did miss him!!!!!!! We had a yummy dinner thanks to Mom and Doreen. The homemade soups were delicious. We had fresh rolls, salad and tons of holiday goodies.
We went on a caroling hay ride and looked at the lights around town. Jason even graced us with his version of the Nutcracker Ballet. As you can imagine.........it was quite a show. We pulled the kids on sleds behind the trailer and they put their surfing skills to test. When we made it home, we warmed up hot chocolate and warmed right up.
Later that night we opened white elephant gifts and exchanged family gifts. Mom and Dad went above and beyond this year. The hand pieced and tied quilts for every member of the family. I loved seeing everyone bundled up in their quilts. It was like Grandpa and Grandma's love was wrapped around everyone.
We ended the night and went our separate ways, feeling love and blessed having the family that we do.
