Family Christmas Party

An annual event that we all look forward to is the Cline Family Christmas Party.  This year Jeremy, Selena, and Claire hosted and they put their own special spin on the festivities.  Watts enjoyed the food...

Lily Grace enjoyed the ambiance and cuddles from Pam...

Cille enjoyed hanging out with some of her favorite cousins...
What a crop of pretty girls we have in this family...

We also managed to sneak in a few handsome fellas...


I believe we had 12 kids in attendance (poor Corinne got left home with a sitter), so the party was full of activity...

Amos really wanted to join the party...
These three are always ready for their closeup...
The girls' team wins in this family! Three girls are missing from this picture and we have 5 boys total.  Girls or boys, though, that's a passel of kids!
Jeremy shared the Christmas story, with a little help from Claire...

The kids really loved their surprises under the tree.  Thanks, Strong family!



The Grinch Who Stole Christmas game was scrapped this year in favor of a surprise game.  Jeremy and Selena had everyone guess the number of ornaments on their tree and the winner received a gift card.  The only catch: each family got one guess, which could be made in the order that your family arrived at the party.  This put us at a MAJOR disadvantage since we are ALWAYS late, but hey, we beat the Kemps, so at least we weren't the last ones to put in our guess...
Kelli won, but Damon would like to point out that he was only one ornament off.  Unfortunately, he was one over, and Kelli was one under.  Way to go, Kelli!
Hey, Shannon, could we borrow Madison for a weekend?  She would make an excellent babysitter...

Pretty like her mama...


Cille and Watts didn't get the memo that the game was over and were trying to sabotage the tree...
Our family has changed a lot since our first Cline Family Christmas party so many years ago in LaPlace.  One thing that has not changed is our love for one another.  We can't wait to party with our family again next year, and look forward to celebrating together throughout 2015.  (To take a walk down memory lane and remember past family Christmas parties, click on 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, and 2009)
