    Default Christmas 2008

    We always have a hard time getting a time when all the kids can come to the house at the same time. This year the family Christmas was yesterday Dec 21. The big guy in the center of the one pic is my son. The babies are his twin boys. There's a shot of the cousins - 6 boys 1 girl. and a shot of my "kids" the boy, his sisters, and one of his sons.

    Good food and wrestling on the floor, life doesn't get better! (Except when you put retired in the sentence!)
    Merry Christmas!

    Ain't that the truth! We seem to always have 4 or 5 Christmas gatherings that start on Christmas Eve and continue to New Year's Day. Of course, our family is so big we'd never have enough room if everyone showed up at once.

    It looks like a nice time Mike. You have lot's of folks there to call you Grandpa.

    It was a good day -- the boys were scolded all day for being too loud -- Catherine held her own -- and we all had a nice time just being together. Daughter asked me late last night what time I had to be at work this a.m. .......OH H_LL -- I gotta work in the a.m.! -- completely forgot ... so I went to bed and left them to talk late into the night. With any luck this was our last Christmas in this house -- future holidays to be in the country on the retirement ranch. Last workin' day is next Wed.

    Mike,

    Great pictures!! Thanks for sharing.

    We have everyone over on Christmas Eve, which has sort of become a tradition that's talked about all year. We make a day of it with horse shoes, darts and four wheelers. If the weather is nice, then there's fishing and a hay ride. If it's raining, we just stay indoors and snack all day. Everyone is welcome, so there's always somebody new who doesn't have family or anyplace to go. We've had almost 40 people here, and the more the better!!!

    When you move to the country, be sure to plan your shop for those big holiday get togethers. It's not only allot of fun, but a great reason to clean up the shop. If it wasn't for this, my shop would be a total mess with different projects spread out all over.

    Yep, I've already set up the tables for Christmas Day, but as others have said, it's sometimes hard to get everyone together at the same time, so I think there'll only be 12 of us Christmas Day. Our daughters, their husbands, and our grandson were here Friday for a little Christmas party, and for the younger daughter to leave her 3 dogs with us for this week, while they go on a week long Carribean cruise with her husband's family.

    Then some of my wife's family that can't be here Christmas Day will be here Christmas Eve.

    So the pictures are Christmas Day last year.
