Our annual "Kruschel Family Christmas" was last Saturday (the 20th). This annual family celebration includes my immediate family (my parents, sister and her family, brother, me and my family, my dad's brother and my dad's sister and her family (her hubby, daughter Tracie and her family and my cousin Clay and his family)). This year, though, due to snowy weather, Clay and his family was not able to make it. We had a great time, nonetheless...good food, fun times playing the dice game and great company! I am a little disappointed in myself, though, because I hardly took any pictures at all...the five I have here were the best of the bunch...but we did do some video taping, so we will have those memories as well.
I'm looking forward to the rest of our Christmas festivities coming up this week. On Christmas Eve, we head down to Minneapolis and Edina for my mom's side of the family annual get together. We also have a guest come to stay with us every year...our friend JJ who is a disabled man who lived in the group home that we lived and worked in 3 years ago. He is so much fun to have stay with us and we wouldn't have it any other way!
Grant's sister Anna and her family will be flying in from Florida on Christmas Eve and will be here until New Year's Eve. This is the first time in a long time that they will all be here over Christmas and we could not be happier! Christmas morning we will head over to the IL's house and celebrate Christmas with the Lindberg clan. I always look forward to spending Christmas morning at the Lindberg's because my MIL bakes the most delicious tea ring and we slowly make our way through the many presents we all give each other. I'm also very excited for Brendan's cousin Audriana and Brendan spending their first Christmas together...
Well, that's it for now...I'm sending out wishes for a Happy Christmas time to all in blogland!!!
