Christmas Gathering

sniffle, sniffle

I was so excited for the extended-family Christmas.  Each year we chip in and bring food and rent a hall and visit with our whole extended family.  It's awesome!!!!!

Last year, Lulu was not in attendance, because she was in Florida with her dad, and Bro was just a wee little fella.  You can refresh your memory at this post.

This year we were all at the party. 

After dinner, Daddy helped with the scenery for the play.

Lulu donned her angel costume (she was Mary for 2 of the last 3 years and I told her it was time to give someone else a turn).

Bro... having already thrown up on his button-down shirt, sweater, and khaki pants... did his best baby Jesus impersonation.

After dessert, Bro started running a fever and was... basically... miserable... it became apparent that being a drummer boy was not in the plans for Bro this year.

Lulu stayed at the party with my parents while Dear Husband, Bro, and I headed home... leaving the hall... just as they were singing "Oh Little Town of Bethlehem."

What a shame that you had to miss it.. that seems like such a neat thing to do! Hopefully Bro is back to normal by now!
