The Christmas family gathering featured everything from formal Christmas dining to watching college bowl games. Here you see some musical chair competition with the kids showing off the latest dance movements.
Dress-ups and pair-ups were ongoing. The kids had a great time dragging out all the dress-up clothing -- for the adults to pick up for them later.
We found time for ice skating again this year. The big kids played tag, while the younger kids just tried to stay standing. Thank goodness for the helper supports.
Our favorite past time was eating. The formal Christmas dinner was divided into three settings to get everyone to the food at the same time.
Did I say something about eating? Ham and potatoes au gratin. What a feast.
An afternoon bowling revealed some talent that had heretofore lain dormant. It also revealed a need for some of us to practice a bit more.
Perhaps it is obvious who was the big winner for the day.
