We are back home after spending some time in Wisconsin with my side of the family.
My mom's Christmas party is always fun. We were especially thankful this year that all of my brothers were there. I didn't take very many pictures, but here are a few snapshots.
Here's my little elf with her cousin Traeson.
My niece Christa was practicing a Christmas tune on her ukulele, which the younger kids all found mesmerizing.
After opening gifts, my son played Foosball.
And my daughter played Playdough with her cousin Trinity.
The adults sat around watching Bob Ross DVDs (a gift received by one of my brothers). This brought back memories, as we used to watch Bob Ross on PBS in my childhood. We even created some Bob Ross BINGO cards and played that while watching. Fun times...
well, fun times for most of us. Aunt Becky found it a bit boring and dozed off.
Here's a back rub train! Grandma, my 3-year-old and my 13-year-old daughters.
My oldest son climbed up on Aunt Melanie's lap on a few occasions. He's outgrown the cuddling phase, so this surprised me!
My 3-year-old all dressed up for Christmas.
Here's my little boy eating. He's happy.
Here's my oldest son with some of his Christmas gifts. He loved the Lego RV set and the Hot Wheels race track.
My mom gave us a lesson in lefse making (an old family tradition). Yummy!
My kids traveled well, all things considered.
Here's a shot of my littlest man riding happily in his car seat. We had very nice weather for the road trip, with no ice or snow to contend with.
A very nice time was had by all!
