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.

  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˜‰
