On Christmas Eve it was just Catherine, mom, dad, and I but we still had fun and I think I laughed more at dinner than I had in a while.
Christmas morning it was still just Cath and I as Paula and Matt didn't join us until that afternoon. So, we embraced it.
My aunt and uncle and cousins came over around noon and we had a full house! My mom cooked a huge ham and it was soooo good. It was just so nice to see everyone. I know, I can't say that enough, but for me, it doesn't happen often enough, so I like to cherish it. I wish I had more pictures...
And then after Christmas dinner we got together for the traditional family photo shoot.
After dinner, we had dessert and got a chance to celebrate my dad's birthday! He is so lucky to have such a special birthday.
It was so great. I can't wait 'til next year!
