Christmas 2015 Photo Journal

Wednesday/December 22, 2015
Our Christmas morning.
(We kept Beza out of school to celebrate.)

All day long we ate lots of yummy food and drank lots of smoothies.  In the afternoon we had a cheese tasting test.

Then, though it was a warm and foggy day, we made our own white Christmas.  (With Insta-Snow.)

There was one last surprise for them in the garage. (Perhaps the most unusual gift ever--but they have been using them a lot. ;)

We ended the day with birthday cake for Jesus.

Thursday/December 24
Christmas Eve
We packed up the van and headed out into more warmish, gray skies.  It was a great time to practice some new knitting skills.

We had the usual my-family festivities that started with Bubsy giving us all a lesson on how to (and not to) group text each other. :)  Then M and T did a little skit with the Camel Song.

After that we played a Pictionary-style game with my parents--we drew memories for them to guess.

Then my parents came up with a newlywed-style game for us to play to see how well each couple knows each other.

After opening lots of gifts we posed for our annual dress-alike photo.  (This year it was just antlers.  Also, because inevitiably someone's eyes are always closed--ahem, usually mine--we all closed our eyes for one, too.)

Then we hurried off to church and came out to the most beautiful sunset (and full moon).

Then M and T did one more round of the Camel Song for Nana and Pop at dinner.

Friday/December 25
Christmas Day
We opened gifts in the morning with Nana and Pop.

Then they played for a while.

Later we visited Grandpa and Grandma Taylor (who was recuperating at the rehab center from a fall).

Before coming back to Nana and Pop's to open more gifts when the cousins arrived.
(We didn't do such a great job of taking cousin pictures, but they had such a fun time together.)

Saturday/December 26
I met my sisters, mom and cousin for coffee.  Then spent most of the day out shopping by myself.  :)

Sunday/December 27
We spent the morning with my family.  On the way to my parents' M spotted this bald eagle.

Then we made the foggy drive back to our house. :)

We loved spending time with the people we love.  It was such a good Christmas.
