On Tuesday we celebrated the Anderson Family Christmas with great fanfare. It was the first time in a few years that we were all in the same place at the same time. Grandpa, Grammie and Uncle Jared drove up from NC, Uncle Luke, Aunt Alicia, Aunt Cammie and “da cousins” came from Charlottesville, and Uncle Carson from Arlington. Even the kids’ great Uncles Ron and Jhoel made it for dinner! We had a great time and it was a lot of fun to spend the early holiday together.
The highlight of the afternoon/evening for the kids (besides the gifts, duh) was watching Grandpa and Uncle Luke build a playhouse. Grandpa built most of it in his workshop at home, but they assembled the pieces in our yard. It is phenomenal and will receive a post all of its own once I take finished-product photos!
We did a pot-luck turkey dinner and the food was outstanding. Maybe next year we will spring for a bigger table, though!
