Family Christmas

Every year Papa Bear's side of the family celebrates Christmas at our house.  This year we got together a couple of weeks before Christmas.  We gathered at our house since we live in the middle of the other brothers.  I love to host - even though it takes a bit of work. We don't exchange gifts with the adults, but we do with the kids and it's fun to watch.  This year I suggested the adults do a white elephant gift exchange for fun.  I put a limit of $10 on it.  It could be either serious or a gag gift.  Anyone who had a gift, could choose a gift.  We all drew numbers to see who would go first.  It was a fun time!!  I got some fishing lures, but luckily my brother-in-law stole them from me as he is a fisherman.  I ended up with a deer calendar which I gave to my hubby.  I think everyone had enough fun with that kind of exchange that they want to do it again next year.  Maybe I will get more creative.

It sure was a blast to see Little Bear with all the presents.  He had so much fun opening his presents and everyone else's too.  He definitely is a blessed little boy along with his sister.  Our family really spoils them both.
