After a great weekend with Christopher’s family, we headed to spend Christmas week with my family. It has been absolutely positively wonderful. I just love my family. I have WAY too much to recap so I probably won’t get around to any of it until next week, haha! So for now I will just share some family photos we took today.
My wonderful family (minus my oldest sister & her family and my brother & his family). The five of us kids all live so spread out across the planet that it’s difficult to get us all together at one time. But any time with any of my siblings is wonderful.
This shot was actually taken while I was testing out my camera settings for the family photos, but I liked it so much that I thought I’d share. I love this guy. I love how he fits in so well with my family. I love how he jokes around with my sisters as if they are his sisters and how he loves on our nieces and nephews. I love how he gets on the roof with my dad and clears off leaves and how he gladly dons an apron to help out in the kitchen when my mom is cooking. And I love how my family loves him and treats him like a beloved son, brother, and uncle. Seeing him interacting with my family always fills my heart just right to the brim even after 9 years together. He’s my favorite Christmas present every year.
