Christmas with Family

Monday after Christmas, my mom, aunt, and uncle (all siblings) came down for a visit.  The reason you don’t see any of Rob’s family is because he doesn’t have any immediate extended family still living.  However, we enjoy time with mine. 

My aunt loves to do stockings for the kids.  She has a stocking for each one of them and always makes a new one for any new Shelbys.

Before dinner, we opened presents.

The bracelet that Ian made for me.  He made one for each one of the grown-ups.

This was the biggie this year.  Uncle Herbie and Aunt Pat got the pink Jeep for the girls for Christmas.  We told them to close their eyes while they were bringing in the Jeep.


Emma didn’t wait long to open her eyes but Sarah kept waiting.  She didn’t realize that we said open them.  They LOVE it!!!  However, they should have taken driver’s ed first;)

Here’s the gang minus me enjoying our dinner together:

(I enjoyed mine with them but I had to take the picture.)


We had a great visit.  They stayed for several days.  We enjoyed a delicious supper at Ralph & Kacoos for Cai’s birthday during the visit.
