We do get very excited when we see them...
So, Monday the 23rd, we had Christmas with my side of the family and it was a great, laidback day with a yummy lunch of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches, presents, and then a VERY yummy turkey dinner.
I was super excited to find this outdoor life ring sign for dad's pool- Pappy's Paradise.
We also entertained ourselves watching some family movies from the late 80's. Crazy how much Brooklyn and Jake resemble my brother and I at around the same ages.
Caroline puts a lot of love in making her turkey. And it definitely pays off.
Caroline's sister, brother-in-law, and adorable nephew joined us for dinner.
So, we captured a group shot of Uncle Eric, Aunt Caroline, and their babies.
And a great family shot.
We, again, were so blessed with some great gifts for all 4 of us. But I have to tell you that Eric and Caroline could not the get the kids anything, and it wouldn't matter. For only seeing them twice a year, the kids have such an incredible bond with their aunt and uncle. It's like no time passes between visits. And, I am quite certain that Uncle Eric and Aunt Caroline are extremely exhausted after visiting with us. The kids keep them very busy. :-)
