Snacks & Games

The third in a series of posts covering our Christmas 2011 ~ click here for the first, and here for the second one.

A favorite part of our Family Christmas comes in the evening ~ snacking on a spread of appetizers and sweets, and playing table games together. Taking time to put little ones down for bed, we often continue late into the night ... such fun memories of family enjoying spending time together.

Thanking God for the gift of family ~ more joy and love than we can hardly contain. It had been a very busy month leading up to our Family Christmas, and we were often tired and overwhelmed with the busyness of life. And we are thanking God for His strength in our weakness, and for giving us a Christmas above what we even hoped for. All because of His Gift that first Christmastime.

The incredible gift of nine precious grandchildren ...

And the gift of family ~ posing for the final goofy family photo (our favorite family photo is saved for a later date).
