This was the year for all of my siblings to get together for Christmas...we only attempt this every 3 years...this year, everyone but Landon and Hannah made it - they are just 2 weeks away from their due date with their first little girl. So we had 14 adults and 15 children at the cabin. Lots of noise, lots of laughter, and lots of fun!
Aeneas (justin's 2nd) and Griffin were shepherds in our nativity.
