Christmas recap - part 2

My fam . .
prepare for lotsa pics
We normally do my immediate fam on Christmas Eve night. But Jonathan and Michelle were in Haiti picking up new family members :-) They flew in Christmas morning safe and sound. So that night we did our thang.
Santa stopped by . . . 

Kerby and Kerlandy had never met Santa. Awww 
The grandkids, er my nieces & nephews 
new additions: Kerby (14) and Kerlandy (8) 

 Miles of smiles
 Trevor may have to go as the Fonz for Halloween if he keeps this up
One of the highlights of Christmas at my mom & dad's every year is the photo calendar for Mom. This year it was Leslie's turn and she turned it up a notch by doing one that's like a scrapbook.   
The fellas gathered round to see all the pics in the calendar and add their commentary. *sigh* Silly boys.
 Our fam loves GAMES!
Anthony, Caleb and Phil had a mini concert in the sunroom.

SOMEBODY sure is growin this year... whew
So skinny it's like huggin a skeleton.
The boys were excited to get the Kinect for their Xbox.

Kerby and Kerlandy like to "take photo" so I'm personally very happy to welcome this sweet addition to the fam. They're the only ones who don't fuss every time I try to take a pic LOL
Mom gave Kerlandy the Santa hat, which looked adorable on her She was all about Mom's singing and dancing Santas. Played with em a bunch, pushing every button over and over. She also showed us how she writes her name in cursive and draws flowers. She may be creative and artistic like Michelle. 

Kerby is a gamer. Video games that is. And I hear he loves to play on the computer, too. Cullen and Camden were so sweet with him, sharing the Nintendo 3DS and watching Kerby play it. Dad showed him how to play the Wii, too. He got comfortable with us and made himself at home on the couch. :-) Sweet guy tripped over my feet once and told me "excuse me." Good manners. Hope big bro Caleb doesn't teach him bad habits. ha 
My family is blessed, always. But this Christmas was extra special. It was a one of a kind experience and I'm so thankful to have such a wonderful, beautiful family!  


  1. It's called Likewise. It's fun! We also played Would You Rather? It's fun, too.
