Our daughter in law, Julie.... with great grandson, Luke. Also in the picture are Charlie Brown and Curious George...who got thrown to the wayside by huggable Elmo later on.
This picture is of one side of our crowd watching the end of that miserable Bear game. We are all Bear fans....You can see my son, John on the far left with grandson, Collin over his shoulder in the white shirt. Daughter in law, Karen is in the white sweater.
It looks like maybe the Bears will pull it off by everyone's smile. Joe's son, Dan is on the right.
We had a wonderful day...the weather was perfect for those traveling. The food was great and the company too. We always have fun together...By the way the family is growing...some said we need a bigger house. My feelings on a bigger place to get together...In a blended family like ours...in a big house you are spread out more and don't get the close contact with everybody. You might not even talk to someone on the other side of the family. When everyone is closer....conversations will include everyone. It just can't be helped...It's a much better way to get everyone to blend.
Well, our Christmas started out with good food, good company and wonderful presents. So many new things...books, plants, good smelling things, kitchen gadgets, warm blankies and so much more. It was a wonderful day.
