Family Fun - Christmas

It seems kind of fitting that we are at the half-way point of 2016 and I'm just now writing about Christmas HA!

I will say that we had a wonderful Christmas 2015.  It's the first time in three years that either the boys or I or all three of us haven't been super sick.  I'm even more thankful for that fact now as we didn't realize at the time the major changes our family would go through and we wouldn't have another Christmas like this one again.  It also make some of this photos extra special.  

 The boys stockings.  I always have fun with their stockings and end up going over budget and with more stuff than will fit inside but that's ok. 
 My brother Ken and his family joined us this year and it was just so much fun.  We laughed and laughed.  These pictures of my dad are precious. 

 Ken and my mom. 

 The boys love my brother.  I haven't quite figured out why since he doesn't do a whole lot other than talk to them :-)

Braedon is Josh's hero.  He loves him and wants to just hang out with him whenever he can.  I think it's pretty cool and Braedon is pretty awesome because he takes time to actually listen to Josh and play with him.

Our day was great - we had a good breakfast, opened gifts for hours (that's what happens when there are so many in one house), had a fabulous dinner and hung out playing games and talking.  I would chalk it up as pretty much a perfect day.
