And here's my brother Tom holding my grand-daughter Calista! I am so happy they were able to act as her honorary grand-parents this Christmas.
My hubby came into the kitchen the another night and found her standing on top of the table! This is what happens when they walk at 9 months of age

We had a small gathering on Christmas Eve at our home.
We will celebrate with my side of the family later in January.
My extended family is very large. My mom has 8 kids and their spouses, 25 grandkids and now 2 great-grandkids. Years ago we came up with the idea of going to a water park and renting a condo for the weekend. It's worked out well and its a tradition we have kept.

And then bonking him on the head!
My mom and her beau! It's been 4 years since my father passed away and I am glad she has someone in her life.
My brother Matt and his wife Bridget came for Christmas eve dinner.
Helping grandpa open presents.
Brand new fun things to play with!

I was so busy cooking and doing other things that I didn't get in one pic!
Told my hubby if I up and die you won't even remember me!
Ok, just kidding but seriously I should get in at least one pic.
Last evening we spent Christmas with Dan's extended family.
It was very nice and the Packers won which was a bonus.
Today I am busy cleaning, throwing out and just generally resting up.
Hopefully you all had a nice Christmas and are looking forward to the new year.
