|My father collects Santas. Mom gives him one every year. He has 27, I believe.|
The day after Christmas, aka Boxing Day, is traditionally spent with my mother's only brother Robert and his wife Susie.
|Two of my favorite girls.|
|Awa & Uncle Robert. I think that Matty looks a lot like him.|
|Robert, the Great Storyteller|
Uncle Robert has a long history of showing up late to everything. One time we told him Thanksgiving dinner would be served at 10:30am in hopes of having him arrive between 12noon and 1:00pm. Then punctuality became a more normal occurrence with Aunt Sue in the picture.
It saddens me to say that Aunt Sue was not feeling well so she did not join in our Christmas celebration. She is doing better, but please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
|Doesn't he look ever so fashionable?|
Ellie Bear went all toddler happy over the large gift bag filled with tons of tissue paper. She was like "oh I know how to open this!".
|She is calling all of her friends on the toy phone.|
She loves her toys, but as with any child, the gift wrap is just as much fun.
|Sparkler & Smokey Joe aka fraidy cats|
|My handsome brother, Matt|
