This was my year to have The Boy in the days leading up to Christmas. When he has to leave our house on Christmas Eve we try to celebrate with our family and friends prior to his departure. So, here our Day 2 and Day 3 of our Christmas.
My Mother-in-law (MIL) brought over Santa hats for everyone at the party. They were a huge hit!
The Short Chic and her Papa exchanging gifts.
That night as we gathered and celebrated, ice formed and snow fell. When we woke the next morning we had several inches of snow and a long drive to make to our second celebration.
It took longer than normal but we made it my Mother's home. Unfortunately, my little brother was sick and his girlfriend was unable to get her three children there in the snow.
My brother participated in No Shave November and then decided to participate in Don't Do It December. I think he looks a bit like Grizzly Adams!
Here is my family minus those that could not be with us. My poor brother might have given his yuck to The Boy because he came down sick the day after this celebration!
