A few photos of Christmas 2008:
Thanks to my SIL's seven children, we always have a lot of stockings to hang.
Feeding the horde. Pretty much the entire Christmas week, dinner is for 20-25 people per night. Everyone pitches in, though, so it's really very manageable.
Some of the cousins made delicious chai-gingerbread men. They were inspired by the gingerbread house in the foreground my friend D. made from scratch.*
Miss M, wearing American Girl Felicity's bonnet, with Grandma B.
And Boy Wonder with his supercool iPod shuffle. I love that he sings aloud to it. Tunelessly.
It was very merry.
*Meaning she bargained with the Fresh Market staff at 6PM Christmas Eve until they let her have it for $5.99.**
**Love ya, D., 20 second hug!
