Our Second Christmas Gathering

I wasn't able to take any pictures of our first Christmas with my grandparents from North Carolina because my camera doesn't work anymore (story coming in my posts about North Carolina). =(  On Friday I finally bit the bullet and bought a new camera.  I ended up getting a Nikon S8100, though mine is in black.  I love this camera and I recommend it for anyone who wants a better camera, yet doesn't want go to the professional camera (I was not obligated to say that, Nikon has no idea who I am =) ).

This was with my Mom's biological family and our first Christmas together.  We had loads of fun and it's always interesting to hear the stories of her brothers while they were growing up =)

I love their Christmas tree.  It looks so much fancier than ours =)

Isaiah, Seth, Brooke, and Andrew all received marshmallow guns =)

I received Sidewalk Prophet's CD 'These Simple Truths', a $30 gift card to Barnes and Noble (squeals of delight!), Wilton Cake Decorating 2011, and a $25 gift card to Wal-Mart.

Playing Golf, I was winning and then the last round Mom beat me =(

It was so much fun being together and hearing them reminisce about their childhoods.  I love Christmas because it's a time when we all get to be with our families and to me that is so important.  

Hope you all have a Very Merry CHRISTmas!


  1. Looks like a lot of fun. I love the grain bins. :)

  2. That is one of my favourite pictures also. I like the old barn too =)
