Started with a great dinner of Honey-baked ham (thanks Randa), Roast, grandmas potatoes, green been casserole and a desert of Cheesecake via Kristal and Sams Club and some kind of amazing Pumpkin Pie bar that Bill is still talking about. The weather was great so we went outside on the grass to eat and the kids had a great time playing and tackling Jason.
Then it was indoors for the cousin exchange and white elephant gift exchange where the highlight was the fertility statue that Kristal found at a fancy cultural store (goodwill)
Started with Sam, left his hand of enjoyment and ended up in Traceys hands. Go figure. Then to its final resting spot of 8 year old Zane. Watch out Randa.
Tessa couldn't be happier with her Mr. Potato Head and all the cousins seemed very satisfied with their early Christmas present. White Elephant was a bit crazy, but I just feel grateful when the family can be together.

Breea and Katie have some reconnection time. Katie has always been adorable, but now she is teenage adorable - EEK!
Kayla sporting her "Grinch" look and Jamison took a blow to the nose, courtesy of the trampoline he fell on.
After the trampoline had its way with Jamie, he was tackled by almost every cousin possible. Then we were off to Aunt Debbies and then to Aunt Claudettes where Aunt Jan and Aunt Verna were also waiting for us. Its a tradition we enjoy every Christmas (not sure how much they enjoy it) but I love seeing them. Wish we could have stayed longer, but made me want to go back and visit with them all more. It was also great to see my fun cousins there too. I hope we can get together more often. I love them all so much
Uncle John looks like he is telling solicitors to go away, but we just kept on singing our out-of-tune songs. (Only 3)
