Christmas at Aunt Glo's

Each year, we celebrate Christmas with Shane's side of the family the Saturday before Christmas.  We usually have finger foods and play the game of  dirty Santa.  It can be quite funny when you get a group of adults (usually women) fighting over that one gift everyone wants.  Below is Aunt Cindy "stealing" a gift from Aunt Becky. 


The kids get to open up one gift as well since all of the adults go home with a gift from the dirty Santa gift exchange.  In the picture below, notice Dillon's hat.  He found this hat at Dirt Cheap earlier that day.  He put it on as soon as it was paid for, and has worn it ever since.  He even wore it to church, left it in the car during church, then put it back on top of his head after church was over.  One of the ladies said he looked like a 60 year old man.  He loves this hat though, because of the feathers.
Shane's Aunt Glo always decorates her home so festive for Christmas.  I absolutely wish I had her decorating talent and time.  Her house is always so beautiful.  This picture is in her den.

This picture was taken in the dining room.  She has every room in her home decorated.  Even the bathrooms have Christmas cheer :)


We all enjoyed a good visit!  It's always so nice to be able to get together with family.  Especially now days, when it seems everyone is always so busy just to sit down and visit with one another.  Aunt Glo also read us a story to remind us all of the true Reason for the Season, Jesus Christ.

Below, Mallory is giving herself rabbit ears which I thought was too funny.  She doesn't quite understand that you are to put them behind someone else's head.  She picked this up from Alex this night.  I think Peyton might be trying to do the same thing, except he has a toy in his hand.

Merry Christmas everyone!
