Christmas Weekend

This is the year when our DC children/grandchildren join us for Christmas weekend.  On Sunday I took Annabelle and Sydney to the New York City Ballet Nutcracker.  It was 4 year old Annabelle's first time and Sydney's 4th!


Sunday evening my husband and I made dinner for all 16 of us and we continued our family tradition by giving our presents to the children on Christmas Eve.  Here are the 7 children's gift bags and 8 stockings packed and ready.


And our 8 grandchildren as they headed off to watch a movie.


Yesterday our daughter made Christmas dinner at her apartment and we again were 8 adults and 8 children.  Zachary, Annabelle, Sydney and I spent time painting Santas in the afternoon.  My Santa was drawn from a photo that Sydney and I took last week at Rockefeller Center - of the skating Santa.




Hope everyone is having a happy holiday.


The presents under the tree look so inviting and what a lovely bunch of grandkids you've got!

what a goal! :) Love the sketches Shirley, and you have a really really beautiful family :) Happy New Year!
