Family Christmas

On this sixth day of Christmas Ken and I spent several hours with our family. There were 17 of us tucked into our living room. Plus later in the day, two of my nephew's friends showed up. Here are a couple of shots of the table. Since we were having a snack party I decide on simple but festive for the table decor. Remember the placemats from this past summer? I thought they'd work really well for today's party purpose. That cute little box holding the plasticware is a gift box. I received a gift on Friday and thought it worked great today. It's cute too!
Three generations sitting
on the chair and couch.

and Son.
Here is the food laden
table--youngest brother-
in-law filling up his plate.

business at our house.

Happy Birthday Pops!
Since we had most of
the family together,
we celebrated Pop's
birthday today also.
Some of the girls (cousins)
hanging out.
Let's go to the park?

Very serious discussion
going on!
Great Uncle Ken

*****************
We had a great time today.
Lots of food, laughs and
good times spent with each other. It is always
great to see family that
live out of town.
Having a baby in the family
who will be celebrating her
first Christmas is great fun too.
Hope you are able to spend
time with family this holiday
season.
