Christmas Eve

Hadassah and Mommy have arrived, dressed for Christmas.

Jemma too!

Seth and Janelle with their babies, two of four boys.  So glad we get to have them close!

Uncle Luke serving up a plate of roast beef with all the sides.  Jesse brought the roast from the bull that ground him in the dirt this summer, and Seth cooked it to perfection.

Kim finishing up her hand crocheted stockings!

All the children have gone to bed and presents come out of the woodwork, truck beds, vans, boxes, bags, closets... creating quite a mountain for a sea of nieces and nephews, brothers, and sisters, own children, and parents.  Stockings are stuffed, and the scene is set for wide-eyed wonderment and exclamations on Christmas morning.  One little one sneaks a preview.

Stockings hung on a most holy night, and all wished a goodnight.
