The Sunday afternoon before Christmas my side of the family congregated in the home my mom lives in for a Christmas celebration.
The table was beautifully laid:
And mom was busy in the kitchen cooking our feast!
The kids were all excited to be at Grandma's!
The little Christmas tree was still going strong!
"C'mon, Arthur! Look at the camera!"
Mr. Badger came along for the fun:
Mom served up a delicious dinner of roast pork, roasted root vegetables, green beans, and salad.
Here we are at the table!
Here are the grandchildren with mom:
After dinner we sat around and opened stockings together. Here's cousin John:
Andrew and James:
A few more happy moments:
Michael and Rachel:
Here's the big mess! Yay!
Laura, John, and Arthur received plaid pups :)
Craig and Emily!
Playing with new toys:
We ended the afternoon with ice-cream sundaes.
A picture of the cousin table!
It was a very special afternoon and so delightful to be around "mom's" table together.
