How do you know Christmas is officially underway? I’ll give you 3 clues:
and Jahpa and Uncle Gene (Yes, they count as one clue because they go together… like peas and carrots, PB & J, Forrest and Jenny, you get the point!)
Anyway, we always kick off our Christmas celebrations on the 23rd of December at my Aunt Martha’s house. It is always a fun time where conversations are plenty, laughter fills every room, and love abounds!
This year we started the night off by opening gifts. Mackaylan and Lydia were spoiled rotten by all of the cousins and received lots of fun toys! We only buy gifts for the kiddos and we are so happy that next year we will have another bundle of joy in our midst… Baby Bo! We can’t wait!
The evening then included our traditional lasagna dinner, dessert, and “caffeine and conversation.” This is the time when the men and children are excused to the den and the women stay gathered around the table to chat, chew, and converse!
Here are a few more pics of our fun night together:
Here is the pic of the 3 Boyces…. Boyce M., Boyce “Gordon”, and Baby “Bo”yce!!!
