This year we tried to keep Christmas a little more low key. Not a lot of presents were under the tree, except for the kids of course. They always seem to make a pretty good haul. Melissa was missing this year, first time we haven't had one of them home for Christmas. But there were many phone calls back and forth with her so I think everyone did get to talk to her at some time.

Tabby Joni and Bob didn't have much to open up so they had to make due with playing with the barbies and glow worm.

Here we all are at the end of Christmas Day. Everyone was pretty much done with parties by this time. I guess Joni didn't want to look at the camera.

We had Christmas dinner at Todd & Sandy's house. It was fantastic. Turkey and ham and anything else you could think of! This is a pic of all the Poyda grandkids and great-grandkids.

Shawn got to know Chloe a little better. She was fascinated by his facial hair.

Taylor and Hannah spent time together. They've become really close since Taylor has moved here. I think they look forward to having each other to play with and not having to play with all those boys.

This was Hannah's Christmas dress. She wanted to be bat girl and Mom didn't think it was worth arguing about. She was the prettiest bat girl ever.

Chloe's first Christmas. She loved the presents.

They sat so well during the Christmas Eve service at church.
We hope you all had a great Christmas and were able to celebrate the birth of Jesus with your families. After all, that is what Christmas is all about.
