Christmas with the Family

On Christmas day we took a trip to a "Mystery Destination" to enjoy Christmas dinner and exchange presents. A sweet couple in our church literally asked MIL and FIL if they could host the whole fam Christmas Day. MIL and FIL packed us all into cars and we were surprised when we pulled into their drive! They have a be-u-ti-ful huge house (okay so it's a mansion.......seriously.) and we sure enjoyed pretending like it was our home for the night. In fact, we felt so at home it DID feel like our own home. It.Was.Wonderful.

We ate a fantastic dinner...

Sang together with the whole family....

Watched FIL blow the Shofar... Ha ha ha ha ha

Played a few games...

And plum enjoyed being together! Here's the sibling/spouse line up:
Joel and I

Jason and Melody

Bret and Beka

Chris and Diana. Okay so I forgot to get a pic of Josh....Here he is in the pic of the whole gang...

This is literally a Christmas miracle! 13 Kiddos all happy and everyone smiling....Perfect!

And almost all of the above picture began with these two here. MIL and FIL. Gotta love 'em.

A good time was had by all!
