Fun Old-Fashioned Family Christmas, 2015

It was another very special Christmas for us, with both daughters and sons-in-law, and, of course, the grand-child. Nothing beats a Christmas with a four-year-old in full. Also, the sweetest child ever.

I'm so glad you took lots of photos. I don't think we took a single one of Christmas morning. Seemed like the day was over before we realized nobody had been taking photos. Drat!
