Christmas Before Christmas

The weekend before Christmas, we travelled to my parents' house for an early Christmas celebration. All of my siblings were there(except Fr. Brian, who is currently stationed in Germany) with their families. We drove up in our new-to-us Suburban, which we got in the middle of December. Goodbye to the no longer reliable minivan!

Watching movies with fancy wireless headphones, which were part of  the deal for our new car.

Catherine got to play Risk with her cousin Andrew...

...and a word game with Grandpa.

Joseph and Grandma.

All 16 of the grandkids.

Silly picture!

Grandpa and Grandma with all of their grandchildren.

We managed to be smart enough to take pictures before dinner!

Elizabeth, Isabella, Emily and Anne

Clara, Isaac, and Anthony

After dinner, it was time for lots of Christmas gifts.

A chaotic, but fun scene.

There were gifts from grandparents, as well as a cousin gift-exchange.

Dominic and Joseph checked out their new Legos.

We had a great visit with Grandma and Grandpa and all the cousins!
