Since we are playing catch up...let's go back to the weekend before Christmas when we celebrated Christmas at my parents' house with my brother and stepsisters. There are 14 of us now when we gather and 5 of them are kids! Although, Shea turns 14 on Friday, so not quite as little as the rest of the grandchildren! Anyways, we got together, had a wonderful meal and exchanged gifts.
Meet "Nelly", as in "Whoa Nelly" - our newest member of our family. This is one of the stick ponies that kept Mackenzie occupied at the tractor supply store a couple of months ago. My parents' remembered the story and bought her her own horse!
Meet Noah, one of the 2 newest members of our family.
Since my parents now have 2 little granddaughters, they both received matching outfits which means we had to have a mini photo shoot! Meet Nina, the other of the 2 newest members to our family. Mackenzie was so good to sit there with her arm behind Nina. We even have a picture of her kissing Nina. Awwww.
Mackenzie has been consistently the first at the table for desserts in the recent past. This time was no exception.
The two older grandchildren left just after dessert to go skiing, so the next 2 pictures only include 3 of the 5 grandchildren, but they sure are cute! Maybe next year we'll get all of the kids to look at the camera when we take a picture!
