Christmas 09



















Another Christmas has come and gone, and like all, it was a good one. I completely forgot to take a picture of the food, so you will have just imagine. We had Brussels sprouts with chestnuts and pearl onions, dressing, mash potatoes, gravy, green been casserole, turkey, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, and pecan pie.

It was definitely a feast. I was so full, that I didn't have any of the pecan pie the day after Christmas day! The first thing that we did Christmas morning was to take family pictures. I know most NORMAL families open presents upon awaking, well not us. First thing was eating our tradition Christmas breakfast of bread pudding and fruit salad; along with getting dressed for our family picture. The pictures really turned out nice. I am only posting a select few, as that if I were to post them all, there would be no room to tell you about them. If I might say, the family looked really nice. The theme for these pics was black, white, and gray with a vest. Not all of us are wearing vests, but for those who go the memo, did. We have pics of the entire family, along with those of just the boys, the girls, all the couples, and so on. It was a lot of fun, hurrying through the pictures so that we could open presents. No I have not grown up completely. I do like the whole present aspect of this season. This year, we did a Secret Santa, it was really quite fun. I had one my brothers.

Zach! you are so handsome! Wow! when did you grow up? The boys won't recognize you in these pics. Everyone has changed so much and looks so handsome/beautiful. I want to see a pic of Mary with a "toothy" smile.
