Merry Christmas Day Morning... *yaaawwwnn*
Our morning started SUPER early, with a 4:30 a.m. phone call from my Dad telling us the family members on my side of the family, who stayed the night at Mom and Dad's were awake and ready to get opening gifts! So, by a little after 5 a.m. we were out there waiting on the rest of the sleepy family members to arrive..*L*
This year on my side of the family, there were 67 of us! It was just a bit more crowded than last year... and next year there will be more to add to the crowd!
We had a wonderful, blessed time with the family... a madhouse of fun, fun, fun! *S*
Photos of the Christmas chaos....
Family sat on the chairs, couches, floor and stood anywhere there was a free space, in the living room, dining room, family room, hallway and kitchen...
Mom and Dad (Nana and Papa) enjoyed having everyone there too! We are so blessed to have our parents, and give God thanks for them!!
Everyone grows up so fast, and more and more family members are added each year it seems... here are nephews Jesse and Matt, who are now uncles to their niece Hailey, one of the newest members to the family.
Angelina loves to dress up, here she is in a beaaauutiful bride outfit Nana bought her.
More of the newer family members... and big Red, my parent's dog, who decided to take a nap in the middle of all the chaos!
Janel and Josh, still sleepy from the early hour... Kaine and Kasey clowning around (as usual - *L*).
Brunch along with the adult gift exchange fun! *S*
And then we headed out for the 10 a.m. Church Service... which was a blessing and spirit-filled worship time. Thank you God for sending your Son, Jesus, for us!
