Day 19- Recap of Christmas 2015 photos

Several of these are repeats from the pictures of memories past post - but here's a few more too. I have photos from Christmas with my Dad & step Mom and Christmas with my Mom, but they're not uploaded conveniently now - so that's why I just keep posting from Xmas with the in-laws last year. 

The grown ups sitting around and chatting at my in-law's house early Christmas AM...while the kiddos were passing out presents to their designated piles from under the tree. 

All 7 grand kiddos posing on Grandpa & Grandma's staircase.

Annie and her buddy cousin Maddy.

They always love the little goofy gifts we find. That year each of the younger grandkids got a nose warmer of different farm animals. Annie wearing a doggie.

Little cousin Gracie helping Grandma open gifts. 

Christmas Eve night at our house and getting tables set for Christmas day dinner. 


  1. What fun memories! Love the doggie nose warmer. Definitely a must in this climate. 😁 You mentioned being at the cathedral in St. Paul. That is a beautiful church. We attended Handel's Messiah there one Christmas, and I wrote to the cathedral this year to find out if there were any concerts but never heard back. PS the email I used for you bounces back.😞 I hear we're in for a heat wave tomorrow. πŸ˜‰

  2. Great pictures! Looks like everyone is having a good time! loving the nose warmers how absolutely adorable they are :-) Enjoy the evening and stay warm!!


  3. Looks like a bunch of fun memories! LOVE that picture of all the grandkids on the staircase.
