Christmas Eve with the In-Laws!

It was GREAT!!  Maybe the best ever!!  Sooo much fun!!   And yes…. I took pictures!  This has been a Christmas Eve tradition for the past 27 years for me.  In fact, Becky announced our engagement on a Christmas Eve.  Becky’s Mom and dad were in Nebraska and threatened to turn a hose on us!!  LOL!!  But we didn’t have the  hose turned on us and were married 6 months later!

Here are some pictures! Snow in the local mountains.

    Sounds like you had a exciting Christmas Eve! The ribs we had were great. Ours was a quiet family affair, with our youngest, M (soon to be 13) insisting Christmas was no big deal, but also wanting to get to bed earlier than usual! (wink, wink!) He’s still my baby (even though the thought embarasses him!) and still a kid! Merry Christmas to you and yours!!

    What a wonderful Christmas! Don’t sometimes you just get overwhelmed with joy when you look around at your wonderful family? I know I do. Your gang looks like they would fit right in with our gang. We’re getting everyone today.. I can hardly wait! This is the very best of Christmas, getting together with the family. Your family all look so fun! Love the santa hat!!!
