Chrsitmas morning ~ merry & bright

Before the children came down.

Before he opened his gifts.

Taking a moment to reflect.

Before he combed his hair.

Norman the new kitty presented himself.

After the first frenzy of present opening was over,
Mark takes a break on the back porch.

Waiting for David and Erika and the kids to come for breakfast.

Iron Man came...'s really Gus.

Cousins reading corner.

Thank you Amanda for helping clean up after breakfast.

The kitty Norman....
always watching his people.

Coming down for another round.

Gus got a bean bag.

Harry got a bean bag too.

So did Lucy!

Some of my most favorite faces,

and some more favorite faces.

Amanda relaxing on Christmas afternoon.

David and his beautiful bride.
(He got lots of books)
He loveth to read good books.

Amanda and Mark...still opening presents.
(The Opening didn't end until late in the afternoon)

Cell phones were not allowed until somebody said something about something on facebook
at which time we all grabbed ours and started reading posts.

David cooked our Christmas dinner steaks
while the young couples fellowship on the back porch.

David said the blessing at the kids table for all of us.

Our grandkid gang.
Growing up....
They are as eclectic as this picture shows.
Love them all to the moon and back.
And, Oh by the way,
we are getting another one sometime in the summer of 2017.
David and Erika are going back to China
to bring home #7....
a boy,
Walter Bookman Cleland.

Thankful for the blessings that come and come.
To God be the Glory Great Things He Has Done.
Merry Christmas!
