Family Christmas

We got together with my extended family over the weekend. That means new photos of Nicky and Ava! (And a sneak peak at Kaity in the background.)

They are just cuteness in the extreme, aren't they?

Nick is following a long standing family tradition for the little ones to stand on the kitchen counter and spin the bird hanging there. I knew his Grandma, my Aunt Sharon, would need to see a picture of that. She doesn't visit us for Christmas. (Imagine that-staying in Florida when you could be in Michigan, enjoying sub-zero wind chills, snow, and ice. Hard to believe, isn't it?)

Like most families, we don't get together often enough now that we're all grown, with families of our own. I so appreciate the opportunity we have to catch up with each other, see how big the kids are getting, and laugh and joke with each other. It's one of the best parts of the holidays and I'm thankful Unc makes sure it happens every year.
