McCarty Family Christmas

Christmas Eve evening with the McCarty family…

Everyone was a great sport when we made them dance for Alex’s birthday video.  I think I fulfilled my role as the crazy camera lady… the crazy video camera lady.  Thank you all for humoring us and being silly for Alex! 

I read the story of Christ’s birth from Luke, we prayed and then we ate!  We had more food than we could possibly eat and sent some home with everyone who would take it.  Remember the plush snow balls that I told you about?  Well, everyone had more than enough fun with them.  Yes, yes, that is a snowball in my coconut meringue pie.  Awesome.  I get extra cool points for being okay with the chaos :)

That particular snow ball went from the pie to Kyle’s hand and then to Casey’s face.

Casey brushed it aside, where Braeden picked it up and slung it across the room at Drew.  Meringue everywhere!

I had found some fun mustaches and we had fun with those, too.  Don’t you think Payson and Poppy look a bit alike?

Me giving a serious gaze, wearing a mustache and giving Alex a feeding.  Multi talented, I tell you.

Braeden may be the sweetest little boy ever.  Okay, fine, he is.  Just loving on Alex… and she got him in a head lock :)

Grandpa turned 78 on Christmas Eve, so we made him wear a hat.  Such a good sport.

More snow ball fun.

Okay, that’s it for the McCarty Christmas.  I love having my family together, all the laughs, hugs and silliness that it entails.  Stay tuned for another post on our own Christmas morning and the Harris family gathering.
