Ward Family ~ Kearney ~ December 21/22
Though we missed Tyler and Nick's families, we made the best of our early holiday. Lots of cookies and yummy food plus a day of chopping firewood, of course.
Mom and Dad's Christmas tree, laden with presents.
At least I got one good photo of sisters Chelsie and Lauren.
Miracle, the Cat
Karolyn prepares Sunday's relishes, sneaking some spicy pickled green beans onto the tray.
Super good helper, Karli, did a fine job of setting the table for 15 guests on Sunday.
Alan and his three babies: Joe, Lauren, and Chelsie
The three granddaughters received pendants from Gramma. Alan got to pose within the group photo.
Mom and Dad Ward with their kids and spouses.
Camp Family ~ noTTafarm U.S.A. ~ December 25
Holidays are guaranteed to be fun if Sophie is in attendance.
Who wouldn't love spending time with a precocious 5 year-old redhead?
We served brunch on Christmas day for a total of 13 guests.
The beautiful sunshine made the dining area all the more cozy.
Andrew enlisted Sophie to help distribute presents.
General chaos as the presents are opened!
Katie was happy to see her old friend, Wilson.When she adopted him from the Humane Society in Denver, he was so tiny, he could fit in her hand. Hard to imagine our 20-pounder being a little kitten! Sophie's new "Pete the Cat" toy and book were big hits.
Alessio and Kate drove home from Portland with their two doggies.
Andrew: Forever Alone
Since he has such a great sense of humor, he goofed around in front of the tree for me.
Merry Christmas from The Camps!
Carl, Scott, Kristin, Marita, Kate, Pat, Andrew, Pete and Sophie
Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
