Family Gathering

Yesterday was our second family gathering for Christmas.  Hubby and I are just reveling in our new house and new ability to host family and friends. 

Last Sunday we had Hubby's kids over.   Unfortunately, it we didn't think to break out the camera.  We had daughter Wendy and her husband Allen and our grandson Noah.   Wendy is 7 1/2 months pregnant, so we kind of had our new grand-daughter Elsie there too!  And we also had son Kenny and his partner Matthew.   I made a traditional Christmas dinner of turkey and fixin's.   We had a wonderful time.

Yesterday we had my kids for a Christmas gathering.   We enjoyed my son Doug, his wife Kara and our grand-daughter Emily.  Daughter Jamie and her boyfriend Don.  And son Nick, unfortunately without his new wife Kelly who was feeling under the weather.  This time we all brought something to eat.  And although we only took a couple of pictures, we did manage to get this lovely video.

It amazes me that Emily knows so many songs and remembers all the words.  I think this is one of her favorite Christmas carols.  Hubby was in heaven sitting at the piano with his grand-daughter.  If he has anything to do with it, all his grandchildren will be as musical as he is.  Emily gets her musical skill from her Mom and her Nana.

I am clicking through all the blogs I read and I swear every single one of them has a post about their family's holiday celebrations up right now — I am loving it. I love the way music is such a great part of yours!
