Don't you love Christmas morning shots? Here's Evan getting ready for a Guitar Hero challenge with the girls, Abby trying out the Bop-It, Taylor laughing at Whitney sporting her new hat, and me taking it all in from the couch.
Christmas day was spent with extended family. We had a nice dinner at Mom and Doug's and then on to the Schimbeck's for a party that evening. With a total of 41 family members all packed into the house, it can get extremely loud and crazy. As usual, the guys are gathered discussing sports, politics, guns, etc. The women are gathered discussing children, movies, shopping, etc. The kids gather in the basement playing dress-up, games, or whatever they come up with. There is lots of noise to be heard in EVERY room of the house, but everyone looks forward to it.
