Family get togethers

I worked the week of Christmas, so we spent a quiet Christmas day here in Memphis, then went up to St. Louis to celebrate the holiday with my family on December 28.  Had a lovely post Christmas dinner at my sister's house with my other sibs (except for Sister #2 - we missed you Ruth and Carl!) and their kids and grandkids - what a houseful.  Here are a few pictures from the dinner and gift opening.

New Year's Day we got together with my best frined from High School and her husband to visit and exchange gifts.  Each year she and her grandson make a gingerbread house - here are a couple of photo's.
I don't know if you can tell from this photo, but Santa is pulling the sleigh with Rudolph driving! :-)

She also has the most lovely nativity set, so I had to take a picture. 

This sign cracked me up!  Are they thankful they're closed??
More family get togethers with my next post!
Happy Quilting!
