Even with stockings and presents and merriment, when I was putting away Christmas Dylan exclaimed “But Mom, Christmas isn’t over, Santa didn’t come!” I’m not sure what he was expecting – perhaps to have Santa over for dinner? We might need to be a little more clear next year about things….guess that means Tyler and I have to figure out our plans before then!
Cousins. And Papa reading a Christmas Story.
We sang carols as a family this year…the kids thought it was the best thing!
True to tradition, my parents had the presents all in code. Dylan was the Gingerbread man.
Gramby is the pied-piper when it comes to grandkids.
Great grandkids got to pick presents.
Whitney found people to dance with (who needs music??) – with my cousin here.
And her highlight by far was the bubbles.
We’re back home, putting Christmas away, and welcoming in a fresh year with new hopes and dreams. 2014 was a very meaningful yet difficult year for us, we have been challenged and grown. We have so much to be grateful for.
