December 25


What a fun day! We had my family here for the day. There are 19 of us in all. We were thankful that our step mom was able to be with us, as she was in the hospital earlier this week. She came home on Wednesday and is doing well. It was great to have the whole family together for the day.

That's amazing! I cannot imagine an entire family living close enough to be all together at the same time. Great picture!

I look at that table and think that it is really a lot of people but can you imagine what it will look like one day in heaven when we all eat together. I know God loves for us to celebrate together here on earth like this picture.

Glad you had a great day! One more year with your Dad (as he is getting older). What a blessing!

When I was at home when my brothers and sister came home with their families, we had a huge gathering too, but now we are all scattered hither and yon. My children are scattered across the continent. Your gathering is so special and I know that you value your times together.

That's a lot of people! Did everyone bring food toward the meal? It looks like it was either buffet-style or someone was serving.

Glad you could all get together. It makes the day more special!

Wonderful shot. I was too busy eating to remember to take a picture of all of us!
