Our final stop on Christmas day was at my BIL Joe and his wife Rita's house for Christmas dinner. Rita pulled it all together on her own and it was wonderful!
As usual, there was the sitting around and visiting part...
ZBoy crouched low to get a picture of Roscoe - the dog, while playing with his new camera.
Kelly was home from the Air Force Academy. Kylee always gravitates towards her when she's around - and Kelly gravitates right back!
Of course, this should be a classic picture - Kylee and her mom, Patty share a quiet moment.
There was also, finally, the great unwrapping. Pop got what he wanted for Christmas and ZBoy generously wrapped up one of his toy police cars for his brother Kurt.
I was pretty surprised to see Kurt had shaved his head again. He looks really good with hair, but finds it itchy, uncomfortable and hot. Hmmmm... perhaps I should shave MY head!
My mother-in-law, Kylee and Zach all got presents to open.
All in all, I'd say this was a pretty good Christmas. I hope that next year I will have a little more of the joyful Christmas spirit and a little less of the worry and exhaustion that went with this one.
