Just Life

merry times.

…indeed. our annual family gift exchange is one of my favorite holiday traditions. karen hosted this year and it was especially nice this year to have the whole family there – we missed katie last year (which is maybe why I didn’t even blog about it!), and of course holly came too.

I had fun this morning going through the nearly 100 photos from katie’s and my cameras. and was pleased I ended up with a enough good ones to create a collage for day 18.

we didn’t take our usual group photo this year, but we did get one of the cousins so my mom can put a new photo on her refrigerator.

I was surprised how much the “kids” have grown and changed since 2007 and 2008. I’m really thankful we have these fun times together…and the photos!
