Family Festivities – Part 3

We celebrated our final Christmas this past weekend… or we got a jump start on Christmas 2013?!?!  Either way =) travel/holiday season is coming to a close for us.

This Christmas celebration was with my mom and her side of the family (as many as could attend).  We met up at my aunt’s cabin near Lake Lure, NC and enjoyed a beautiful weekend of good fellowship, food and views.  Here are a few shots I captured over the weekend.

My version of this picture – Mom was making Henry walk the plank and since he showed a bit of fear, she made him put his hands in his pockets so he couldn’t catch himself if/when he fell. =)

My crazy awesome candle.   And Mike with a lace headband and his gift card inside.

and even more hanging out

I’m really thankful we were able to spend another year together!  Love you all.  And we love our new bedspread and towels and other treats (and the crazy candle is currently set up on my desk!).
