Last Christmas Celebration

I just realized I still had some Christmas pictures that I hadn't posted yet.  We didn't get together with my mom's side of the family until the weekend after Christmas, so it was a later celebration.  We alternate houses every year between my mom's house and my aunt's house, and this year was my aunt's year to host us for Christmas.  They live about 2 hours away, so early Saturday morning we all jumped in our cars and hit the road.  We love getting to go visit them! Growing up, I always thought of my mom's side of the family as the "small" side since she's just one of two children.  My dad's one of five so there are a lot more cousins on that side.  But these days, with all us grandchildren grown up, I'm pretty sure this side has produced more great-grandchildren.  In fact, the 14 adults will be evenly matched when the 14th great-grandchild arrives in March.  Five of those great-grandchildren are four years old and are either very best friends or tattling on each other right and left.  And three kids are younger than them.  I'm sure you can imagine how chaotic it gets when we're all under one roof!

My pictures from the day are very random and not very great.  With all the chaos, though, it's a miracle I got any pictures at all.  It was a super fun day and I'm so glad we were able to find a time to all get together, even if it was for just half a day.  I think I'll skip the commentary this time...enjoy the pics!
