Last weekend we celebrated Christmas with Mark's immediate family. We are leaving Christmas Day on a trip with them so we planned a day a little before "actual" Christmas. (by the time this posts we will be on VACATION!) It was a Friday evening and the kids were all ready to be in their P.J.'s...too cute!!!
The past few years we have done a "silly family photo" contest. Each family submits a photo and Mark's parent's judge who is best. This year we actually took a group picture without them knowing...it was HILARIOUS but so funny we don't share these photos on social media, for the sake of everyone involved. ;) The picture below was one of the more calm ones...ha ha!!! We have so much fun with this!!
Kirsten (Mark's sister) and her husband got Mark and Kyle awesome personalized coolers!
There is always lots of opening, laughing, and playing I didn't get many pictures! We had a great evening together and can't wait for vacation!!
Then on Saturday evening we celebrated with some extended family of Mark's. There are always lots of people but that's what Christmas is all about...being together! ;) We had great food, opened gifts, and played games.
It was a fun night! One of Mark's cousins is moving from MO in a few days so they took a group "cousin, with extras" picture...
What a fun night together!!
