Longest picture post ever.

Rigg is doing better...to be perfectly honest...he was never terrible. He is acting more like himself, I think the medicine is doing it's job.
Thank you for all the prayers and verses you sent my way. I cannot tell you how much it means to have the prayers of friends.
I will keep you posted on Rigg's progress...but we seem to be on a definite upswing.

So...to the post...

This past Saturday, we went to see Santa, and then had our first Family Christmas. It was with my Dad's side...an extended family gathering. We do not usually do it so early...but this is what worked best for everyones schedules. So we gathered and ate, and ate and ate...
Oh and we let the kids open presents...

I do love my family.(this is the biggest understatement...I look forward to family gatherings so much I am bouncy and giggly days before they are to occur...) It is nice to look forward to family gatherings and know that you are going to enjoy yourself. I am so thankful that God has blessed me with such a wonderful family.

So, to the pictures... The reason you do not see the Captain is because he was behind the lens.







I am pleased as punch to say I still have all four of my grandparents. Here are my dads parents. His mom, my Nana, on Santa's lap...and me with my Paw.







Incidentally, Andy picked out the kids toys...even Cassi's hat...his choice of a nurf shot gun was a huge hit, favorite toy of the day!







Rigg's first time opening gifts...he was very into it, I was surprized because he is so little...what fun!





Santa with night vision goggles!

Not sure what Bo is up to, but whatever...

Chaos...

I had this great idea to just start chucking the trash down the basement stairwell...it worked great...

until Casin thought everything needed to be thrown over the railing...

The mess was HUGE!

But still worked out great because I didn't have to clean it up!!!





She will always be a part of family gatherings...

How 'bout them Colts? (I saw the sweatshirt and thought I remembered they won a big game the other weekend). Are you and the Captain fans? Anyway... love the pics - what a great family. What a blessing. And seriously Rigg is so sweet and cute and aware and checkin stuff out. Awesome. I am trying to get a new battery charger so I can post my digital pics. I will do so soon. Thanks for giving us a glimpse into your Christmas season. Lv, jen
