With my mother's family, we usually get together Christmas Eve night for finger foods, games and family time. This year between Christmas Eve being on a Wednesday night with church and Jason, Jenny and Andrew having to go back home, we had Christmas Eve brunch. We had so much fun with wonderful food and just being together - although we missed Richard and Amy (they are in Belize for their honeymoon, poor things) and Chuck (was on his way in). Papa Whittle was in high heaven having all 4 of his great grandkids around him. Here are some of our sights from the morning.
Love time with our cousins
Opening presents - Carter got a personalized Braves jersey with his name and Brian McCann's number on it. Laura Beth got Littlest Pet Shop things. I made Rebecca and Jenny (Amy also got one) a recipe scrapbook with some of our late Grandmama Whittle's favorite recipes. I will post about that later. Rebecca and Jenny also received their family heirloom necklaces that belonged to Grandmama Whittle's side of the family. What a special gift - spending time with family!
