Remember how big our table was at Thanksgiving? Well our Christmas celebration was quite a bit smaller. I thought a cousin would be there with her family (which would have been an additional 4 people) but they were in Vermont skiing/snowboarding. (One of her sons is on a snowboard team so they go every weekend.) In the end there were only 7 of us. This is nice though because we all get to sit around and talk much more than we do at other gatherings. Also, with the gift giving, it's nice to be able to see what everyone has received from other people. I remember the chaos of previous years. It was a bit out of control!
I also think I failed as a photographer with this visit because this is the only picture that I took. My aunt took a few more of everybody, so maybe I'll be able to get copies from her.
