This year, we celebrated with Dad & Chris and Brett & Charlie at our home the day BEFORE Christmas Eve, as we have done the past few years. Like the past few years, we once again only have pictures of gift opening. And...Unfortunately, Rachel and Peter had the stomach flu, so they weren't able to join us.
(Wait - you can see the fire in most of the photos! But STILL no photo of our really very pretty Christmas Tree upstairs)
At the end of the night, we were full.
We were happy.
We were content.
We are family.
Oh! and Brett and Charlie stayed the night (like we have done at Brett & Rachel's the past few years). Perhaps this is how those two avoided the nasty stomach bug that invaded their home!
