The Family Christmas Party

Saturday night was our annual family Christmas party and this year it was Grandpa and Grandmere's turn to host. Here are Chad and Alaina arriving at the soiree looking cute as buttons... Stella and Grandmere surrounded by cousins and fun. Stella loved all the attention she got from the "big girls."
Sweet Anna helping Stella drink her juice in the middle of the festivities...
Grandpa and Daddy plotting something...guess Stella comes by it honestly...
Stella was mesmerized by Jeremy's annual reading of the Christmas story...
She was also very excited about her gifts. She liked the first one so much, in fact, that after she opened it she was more interested in playing with it than in opening the rest. Good pick, Anna!
This is the face that I got when I asked Stella to pause from her unwrapping to say, "Cheese!"
While I am not very fond of my personal look in this picture, Stella looks so cute that I am posting it anyway...
Chad and three of his four favorite ladies....the fourth, of course, is taking the picture. Obviously!

We had a great time seeing the family, praying, laughing, and playing together. The Christmas party has become one of our favorite events of the season, and one that we look forward to all year. Each and every family member is so special to us, and we are so thankful that God gave us you to love!
