Christmas / New Year's Celebration

We had an amazing family celebration for Christmas with my side of the family. We had it New Year's Eve up in East Texas at the lake. Michael and the kids went up Tuesday morning with my parents and took the campers...unfortunately I had to work, but I joined them Thursday evening as soon as I was able to get out of work! All of the family was in town and several of us camped. The marina in my hometown catered our event and we had our party at their restaurant. It turned out to be an awesome party!!! We had games for all the kids and some of the best food and what was the best part was no one had to worry about cleaning up their house (before or after), no one had to cook and the best part, no one had to do dishes!!! It was a zero stress or rush holiday and we had a great time. I think we've set a precedent for years to come!

Here are a few take aways from the day and the trip to East Texas!

Games were played - lots of games!!

Sometimes I really miss East Texas and really think about how it would be to move back!

We were missing a LOT of folks in this picture, but I am always happy to get as many as we can together.

The next day after church we spent the afternoon fishing and enjoying being with family some more. They fish weren't biting for us, but that's okay - it's still fun! And this boy just LOVES to fish!
