On my side of the family we got together on Christmas Day - the first Christmas for my Nana without Pop. There is always an abundance of delicious food (Nana's trifles being one of the special treats) and family to catch up with.
Symon's side of the family gathered at his sisters house on Boxing Day. Once again there was so much delicious food, and lots of laughter. Young children definitely make Christmas - one of my highlights was watching my niece's wee boy slowly tearing strips of wrapping paper off his gifts, a trick he had just recently learned, to discover the present inside.
We had two people with crutches after both having knee operations, two pregnant ladies and two bearded guys! I do love family.
Another Chrismas has come and gone, and it's always interesting to take stock of the year that has been, and thank the Lord for His goodness, and especially sending His precious gift of Jesus, the great Hope to a hopeless world.
Here's hoping you had a lovely Christmas. Here's to some time with family and holidays!!!
p.s. My eldest is wearing his ugly Christmas sweater just for fun in this pic.
