Large Family Christmas
Wrap presents with us! Today I’m sharing a vlog I filmed with Travis about two days before Christmas. He’s an excellent wrapper and I leave that in his department. I’m just the happy helper 🙂 I also share our Christmas budget of about $75-$150 per kiddo, depending on their age. Some years we do a large family gift (like last year we got new to us bikes and gear and new puppies). This year we let everyone enjoy opening lots of independent gifts.

Here is our Christmas Eve family fun from Instagram!
Just sharing a few pictures from our Christmas Eve last evening. We joked it was the "3-S's" –> Soup (homemade chicken noodle because we've had a few sickies), S'mores, and Stockings. We watched the Naivety Story movie ❤️, then played a game where every sibling had to say a compliment to or share a favorite memory of each sibling (I made that one up on the fly, but it was fun. I wrote down their answers and will keep those to read another year.) Then all the kids opened their new Jammies and stockings. Merry Christmas ❤️🎄
Here are pictures of our large family Christmas (I didn’t vlog on this day – just had family time :).
Oh, and here’s Benjamin’s Christmas Day hair!
And here are pictures of our “Grandmother Christmas.”
This lovely lady is my momma. She's one year from 70, so let's say "hey there lovely Grandmother," 💃💃💃. We had "Grandmother Christmas" today since she couldn't get here any sooner due to bad weather and caring for her animals out of state. The kids enjoy their Grandmother visits immensely and they are blessed to have her. Maybe? a little known fact: I'm an only child so all these kiddos are a blessing to us all! #grandmother #familytime #christmas
And here’s today’s new vlog with our Christmas budget breakdown and what we got our 8 kids for Christmas 2017!
