An Early Christmas Celebration

Our new family photo!

Last night, we enjoyed an early Christmas celebration with my daughter Mary and her husband Ryan.  They'll be out of town on Friday, so we're catching it when we can!

My husband Thad worked hard to create a safe firepit in the backyard so we could roast marshmallows and make s'mores.

The kids like to torture our guests...

The mighty muscle men

A sister moment with Melody and Julia

Jolly Ben!

The kids draw names for giving each other Christmas presents.  Joanna picked Mary's name!  What's in the package?

One of Joanna's photos, plus some pottery from Valencia Community College's art sale.

Mary bought the game Catch Phrase for all of us,
so we played three rounds last night.

I hope you 've enjoyed our pictures!
