Extended Family Christmas

Due to work schedules, our extended family gathered to celebrate Christmas on December 23rd at Lacie and Ryan's house.  Lily Grace looked like a Christmas present herself under that giant bow...
Uncle Chad and Reid...
Aunt 'Laina and Tucker...
Mawmaw and Watts...
Watts avoiding looking at the camera while I desperately try to entice him to look...
Daddy and a couple of his favorite gals...
Time for presents!
But first a couple of photos...
How well-trained are these kids in front of a camera?  It's actually a little embarrassing...

He looks pretty sneaky in this one...

This was the first year that Watts was really enthusiastic about opening his gifts...BY HIMSELF...and he savored every moment...
Reid seemed to like his Ironman costume...
The other two fellas took notice...
Still working on those presents...
Tucker made a very convincing Captain America...nice pecs...
Watts LOVED his Spiderman gear from Uncle Chad and Aunt 'Laina.  He felt that a nap in his new sleeping bag was in order immediately...
Stella took the time to carefully read each card...


Still at it...


Turns out the only problem with those costumes was that the boys insisted on fighting each other, even though Ironman and Captain America are supposed to be allies...

Mawmaw Shirley liked her special gift...
This picture is truly miraculous.  7 kids ages 6 and under all looking at the camera at once!  WOW!
And Cille gave us all a Frozen serenade...
It was wonderful to spend time celebrating Christmas with our extended family.  Hopefully 2015 will hold lots more togetherness for all of us!
