   The Whole Gang

By Christmas afternoon, Brian's family began arriving... Mark, Heather, Anderson and Carter then a little later Mom, Dad and Katie Beth.  Paul, Rebekah and Avery arrived on Friday afternoon to complete our guest list.  We had a wonderful few days together, all 16 of us under one roof.  Sometimes I'm amazed we can fit so many in our seemingly modest sized home, but it always seems to work -  sort of like when Jesus fed 5000+ from just 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread.  Our days were filled with yummy food, good conversation, gifts, a little shopping, play, games... simple good family fun.  We always treasure the times we can all be together.

Wow - we ARE a big crowd! Thanks for opening your home, once again! You didn't know you'd be the one hosting many holiday get-togethers with the convenient Charlotte locale!!!!
