A Gray Christmas

Thursday, December 26, 2013

Christmas Day at the Gray house is filled with food, joy, laughter, and chaos. It really takes commitment to keep 20 loud, lively people, ages 4 months to 91 happy for 3 hours. We have a great variety of spiritual and political views. Our eating habits and economic standings vary greatly.

Still, we had a great time together! We focus on the kids and their antics, and also in our mother, who at 91, is still going strong.

I think that all of the excitement was a bit overwhelming for baby Lina, but she will get used to it by the time she is 3 or 4!

My favorite part of the day is seeing everyone sit down at the table together to thank God for our food, family and good health.

  WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL pictures. You are absolutely glowing, Grandma! And how precious that your Mom got to hold and cuddle her great granddaughter. Memories that will live in the heart forever.

Hugs.
