Christmas 2011

 Every year my mom has a party the week before Christmas so that we don't have to try to go to two different houses on Christmas day.  It's a great way to start Christmas week and it almost always falls on my Ben's birthday so that makes it extra special.  This year we had it at our house so my mom could just come and enjoy it...nothing makes you love family more then 30 people smooshed in a house built for 6.  What a simply GREAT time.
Happy Birthday Ben!

 Is it possible that he could be 26?  Where did the time go?

  1. Who got the best gift in the exchange?

  2. Um ME! But Grandpa John did get a trash picker thing...that was pretty sweet:) Ben got a gas card that was popular and the Starbucks bag-o-fun was too, I think Jacob got that.

  3. Alec ended up with the Starbucks stuff, but he gave me the Big green mug! :) Jake got the tool box, he was pretty stoked. I thought the game went pretty smoothly this year, considering all the people. Thanks for hosting Gretchen, I love your house, so cute, homey, and cozy!
