And Finn eats a bubble...

I was enjoying blue_leaf's pics of Christmas dinner with family, and it hit home how similar our lives can be all over the world, people just trying to have a good day with the people they love. And how fortunate we are to have abundant food and time to spend on making things special. Unfortunately I didn't take any pics when the table looked pristine and beautifully perfect, but maybe it looks more perfect with the children having fun with bubbles as we all sat on, nine of us at the table, long after the meal was over...

Thank you!
-I am glad to see this happiness and celebration.
We were determined to make the day as relaxing as possible. And it was surely a great celebration.
Christy and I had been to Midnight Mass where I played the piano and Christy carried in the Baby Jesus for the manger, we'd all gone to the Children's Mass in the morning where I ran the powerpoint, Asher read the psalm and Finn was one of the Three Kings! Steve just came along to all that *g* and then later cooked the food for dinner!

Thank you for posting your Christmas dinner picture, the kids look as though they're having a great time - and it finally inspired me to download my Christmas photos from the camera too, as you'll see I've shared a few pics too!

Yay! You got your white cloth and your white and blue theme - and Christy seems to have dressed to match!!

Yes, I found a cloth that just fitted inside the hugeness of the table, so Finn couldn't catch on it when he wriggled around!

And yes, dressing to match the theme was above and beyond the call of duty!
