Christmas 2009

Christmas 2009 was very busy. With a large family, we have a several family gatherings at Christmas. This was December 23rd. We had my family over for our Christmas. Here are a few pictures to share.

This is mom and dad opening their calendar that Kenna made on our scrapbook retreat at the Red Rooster. It turned out really good. I think they really liked it!

This is the girls after opening their Christmas ornaments from Aunt Netta and Uncle Brian. Every year they get the kids new Christmas ornaments with their names on it. This year the girls got hearts and the boys got trains. This has been a great gift - this was number 7.

This is a picture of all the kids. The tall young man covering the tree is Adam (this is Randy's oldest son). The young man in the orange shirt is Drew (also Randy's son). You see Kenna in the black shirt, Billie in the white shirt holding our littlest member Bo (we always called Dustin Bo when he was little). Dasha (Randy's little girl adopted from Russia) in front of Adam, then Jordan (with temporary pink highlights), Ashton and Aidan. Amber (Randy's daughter) was not here. We miss her, but our hearts our full!!!

Gift made with and from Love

This year for Christmas my niece decided to make her mom a quilt. She had never made a quilt. Did not even have a pattern. She measured out squares on paper bags making her squares that would be sewn together.

What was so special about this quilt? It was made from Dustin's clothes. She cut some of his clothes up and made her mom this quilt. In one corner there is a piece of the pocket from one of his dress shirts. Quoting my Aunt Joyce "every quilt needs a little character".

Like I said this was quilt made WITH love FROM love.
