The 24th of December lunch and afternoon

 I'm almost caught up.  Here we are on the 24th of December.  We had a really nice luncheon and afternoon.  Dani was babysitting a cute little baby and she felt just right at home and happy like a little joey.
 What a cute little family!
 These two littles had  great time.  They had a few challenging months a while back, but now they are so cute playing together and carrying on a little conversation.  It's fun to listen to them when they don't know we are listening.

 Val made cookies with all the kids.  They love helping and she is oh so patient with them all.  She is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!

 Papa had a nice turn with little Jakob.  There's always a long line waiting to hold him because he is so cute and cuddly.
 Yum Yum

 I had several crafts prepared for the kiddies.  They painted, made ornaments, made little Christmas trees and had fun.

 Poor JaNee fell and broke her elbow and hand.   She has had a hard time recovering.  She was finally beginning to feel somewhat better.  We have all felt so badly for her.  Michael has been a wonderful, supportive and helpful husband.  Indy gets to go everywhere with them. Good thing he's well behaved.
 This little adorableness was held by everyone.  I love that this is his first Christmas and he's here with us.
 A little modeling by the princess.
 Stockings were hung in the evening.
 Our tree and some of the decorations.

 Anna brought me this lovely nativity from the Filipines.

 Our beautiful princess all ready for Christmas eve.  She is the sweetest little girl.  I can't help but shower her with kisses every day.

And then there's handsome Reggie.  This little guy is getting very busy.  Ha! He's into everything, but he's such a little charmer.
