Is is over yet???

What, Santa is coming tonight????
From december

We got together at one of my daughter's, for our Christmas Eve celebration. It was very informal, a pot luck dinner which turns into more food than we will ever eat.
Then we did gifts, first a Chinese auction which the kids really got into. $5-$10 gifts produced such a commotion! Who knew!

This year we did Secret Santa for the adults, and it was a good thing. It was fun, everyone got what they wanted, and it was pretty stress free. The best part is that going home was not the usual trucking tons of stuff out to the car that we didn't need in the first place.
It works for me.
As always, there was a rush for the deviled eggs.

This one is MINE.

My number 1 daughter was loving her Flip Camera, and no one was safe.

She looks innocent enough, doesn't she?

Zoesy dog was loving every minute of it. That girl loves company.

Someone was taking a survey, and making a list: did you want to eat first, or open presents first. The first tally was not what she wanted, so she did it again.
Still no luck.

Do it again, Gabby!

The kitchen was a very popular place to be, even though it is TINY.

How many people CAN we fit into this little kitchen, anyway??

Daughter #2 wishes that we would get out of her way.

Daughter #3 has everything under control. Noone is surprised.

Do these glasses make me look smarter?

I just don't want to miss Santa.

This was the nicest Christmas ever. All my family together, in one place. Everyone was comfortable, relaxed, happy to be there. No drama, no agendas, no stress.
Just family, just love, just Christmas.
Ah.
