Christy family picture time

Every year Mindy's family takes a family picture. My how the family has grown. You can see Caleb in the bottom row holding the famous "dial-a-plate." It seemed as if every year we all lined up for pictures and someone had to make the plate with the year on it. So, Larry welcomed himself into the family with the dial-a-plate. You can rotate the last digit in the year. What a genius. Props to Aunt Lori for remembering where she puts it every year. Just glad I am not responsible for keeping it.


Aunt Christy and Oliver walk down the steps to see what Santa has delivered. Were they good this year?

It sure looks like they were good. Santa wraps each person's presents in a different colored wrapping paper. By the looks of things, it appears that Santa is not wasting any time spoiling Oliver!
Here he is laying in all the presents!

Picture People

We took Oliver to the Picture People to have his pictures taken. Perfect timing for Christmas presents. Won't the grandma's be so excited! This is Mindy's favorite picture of him.

Annual Christmas Dinner

Every year all of our friends get together for a big Christmas dinner. This year Amanda and Steve hosted it. We are going to need a wide lens by the time all of our kids go to college.

Helicopter Santa

Larry's work hosts a children's Christmas party every year. All of the children eat pizza and cookies and run back and forth on yards of loud bubble wrap. The highlight of the day...santa flies in on a helicopter! All of the kids get an opportunity to sit on santa's lap and they even receive a present to unwrap.

He loves to smile!

Christmas tree hunting

Larry is cutting down our Christmas tree. We walked all over the tree farm with our friends in search of the perfect one and finally found it.

Mindy and Oliver all bundled up. Oliver is dressed up in his snow suit, except there is no snow. It was really cold though! The baby Bjorn is wonderful to carry him in. Mindy has two free hands to work with.
