Frolic and Fun at Christmas

I hope you all had a great Christmas! We certainly did!  Ours could only have been better if Travis and Kerry could have joined us, but he had to work.  We started out Christmas Eve with Trina and Tanner and Mass at our church in Wellman.  We then came home to eat (of course) and watched "It's a Wonderful Life".  Christmas morning we had a light breakfast and then off to Mass in Williamsburg at Trilby's church with Trilby, Mike and boys, Tasha and Kyle,  Trina and Tanner, and us.  Then we all went back to our home.  
Before anyone else added their gifts our tree looked like this: 
The kids played games and snacked on meat, cheese, crackers and wassail while waiting for dinner.
Our dinner menu was:    Beef Brisket
    Potatoes & Gravy
              Baked Beans
            Pretzel/Strawberry Salad
    Broccoli/Cauliflower/Cashew Salad
    Homemade Buns
    Pumpkin Dessert
    Pumpkin Carmel Cheesecake
    Christmas Cookies
After dinner we opened gifts.  Nate was battling a cold and wasn't feeling good, but enjoyed opening gifts anyway!

Cael lost a front tooth just this week and the other front tooth was loose and bleeding so this was his solution!

Payton has been wanting an IH quilt for his bed, so I made him one for Christmas.  I tied it instead of having it quilted.
After gift opening Tanner plugged in the wii and we played games.  It was a lot of fun!

And now Christmas is over for another year.  I have been trying to figure out how to do a slid show of my Christmas decorations, so watch for that to get posted soon!  Now, we're off to relax for a day or two!
