Christmas Eve Eve

Greetings to all of you! 
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas,
I have to say, this one was the best ever.
On Christmas Eve Eve, as we call it,
our family gets together at Wendy's house
for the pre-Christmas celebration.  
The work she puts into this, and the traditions
that have been created over the years,
make this such a special evening.
My grand niece celebrated her first Christmas, with Mom Rachel!
My triplet grand nephews, now 10, joined in the picture of my
nephew Dave and Preston.
It was such a special surprise when my cousin Carol, whom I haven't seen in several years,
came in with her awesome fiance' Tim!

And my nephew Jeff, whom I haven't seen in forever!, showed up with my sister Kathy!!
My Grand daughters, Tara and Kiley, were adored by my nieces, Jenna, Claire, and Kayla.
My sister Wendy puts so much into this evening, and one of the crafts she gave the kids
was a Nativity sticker page. I helped Jenna put hers together.

I love this picture!!  Wendy's kitten was in the back room, 
and came up to the door. Kayla
played with her through the window.
I was really unhappy when it came time to take the family 
pictures, my camera battery went dead!
But all in all, this Christmas was fantastic.
I hope yours was as special!

It was the best all around this year. I loved that Jeff was able to experience the evening. He loved it and felt so much a part of the 'gang' of cousins, even with not seeing them in so long. It was a most special family time. Love the pictures, Laurie.

It looks like you had a wonderful time, my Dear! Isn't that aggravating about your battery? I used to keep a spare charged but have not done it for the camera I have now...♥
Wishing you a fabulous 2013!
