This is Sam and Emmy having a good time being silly.
Below is Kelley and Andrea. Who knew we looked so much alike?
Everyone took this opportunity to get a special picture with Grandma. This is one of my favorites.
Grandma with her 6 children from left to right: Marla, Margo, Brenda, Sis, Marion, and Keever.
These are Margo's 5 daughters and Becky who belongs to Marla. Aren't cousins fun?
Dad took this opportunity to get a special picture with his Mom. I love this one!
Cousin Scott read the Christmas story and did the devotional this year. It was special as always.
Christmas with Jason and Holly and the kids took place on Sat. morning. What a blast we had. The kids were hillarious as they loved each present with such drama. J and Holly were fun too! :) Here you have Jason and Zeke with their new looks.
Elijah LOVED his official Troy Smith jersey!
Next came the Walsh Christmas on Christmas Eve. Everyone had a good time eating and opening presents. I had Aunt Linda's name this year and she loved her Santa decoration. Mom will kill me for posting this picture, but it's too fun not to post. Sorry Mom! She got her brother a Nascar hat, but she's as much a fan as he is, so she tried it on and was being silly. I caught her in the act.
Grandpa Walsh got himself a new coat. He looks pretty happy with this gift.
A traditional family picture!
Christmas morning was enjoyed in it's customary way. We jumped on Mom and Dad's bed about 6:30 which was a little later than normal. They had already been up and were just waiting for us. Jon did join us for the customary wake up call which got some chuckles. Here you have Andrea and I in our Christmas PJ's.
Andrea got Jon a new coat.
Mom loved her Christmas purse from Andrea.
Looks like it was the season for coats. Andrea and I went together to get Dad a new coat too.
Christmas Day was also a sad day because Grandma Grate fell and sprained her wrist and fractured her pelvic bone. She's back in the hospital with another 4-6 weeks in a rehabilitation facility. This made for an unusual Christmas day as it was just mom and I for most of the day. We did have a nice visit with Carolyn for a few hours which made the afternoon fun. Well, as I sit here typing this, I'm thinking about all the decorations I need to take down and the outside lights. It's fairly warm and sunny today, so should I get out there and do it? I sure don't want to. I love putting it all up, but I sure hate taking it down. Well, guess I better get to it. I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful, blessed holiday season like I did!
