This was strange to me....The older kids sat around Odin and watched him play for quite a while. Erin took pictures of Odin.
Owen opted out early to play with his trains and Layla really wasn't that interested in watching Odin play. Fun times!
Lots of gifts under the tree

Still watching Odin as he plays with a bow....Who put a Santa hat on Joseph?

Bridget, Odin and Grandpa Pat....Teenage girls....Teenage boy on the floor in the new closet

Dinner was great! Pat brought bison. Jeff cooked roast and steak on the grill.....Perfect. And wonderful side dishes.
Then Jean reallized she didn't have enough steak knives for everyone so Brendan had to go to several neighborhood homes to borrow some!
No more pictures of dinner because we were busy eating and conversing.

Time to sing!

Featuring Four Calling Birds and Owen and Jim singing Five Gold Rings

Kyle with a tatto....Layla opening her kitchen....Odin and Owen are not interested in that girly stuff....An ornament from Sean and Rose

Owen got "The Best Gift Ever" from Pat

I ordered a stuffed, fluffy coffee cup and I thought it was coffee cup size. It wasn't....sigh. Much laughter and Odin liked it

A neighbor choose the winner of the Gingerbread House contest. She accidently choose Jean
when we all know Pat was the real winner with the depiction of my house and big garage


I brought prizes for games but we ran out of time so we had a drawing instead

Checking out the prizes....Brendan selling low numbers for the prizes....In our jammies (our third and final outfit)
