The table was laid.
The stockings hung on the ladder with care.
And the fun began. It seems like at least a few guys are looking at a map at one point or another. I'm sure Phil is giving Brent good advice. :)
A classic pose of some uncles (James & Philip).
My sweet mother and dear Aunt Carole.
The newly married among us (Phil & Dana).
The soon to be married (Josh & Faith).
A classic shot where the background shots are even better than the foreground.
And a few other random shots of the hilarity on the night we opened presents.
And then, finally, we got a few cousins and spouses together for a group picture. Due to poor planning, not everyone was still there. Oh, well. We do the best we can. Oddly enough, we seem to be standing on an incline. In actuality, the house was on a level surface.
Central to our celebration is my precious grandmother. I want to be like her when I grow up!!
Saturday was the big ol' catfish fry. In case you don't know... Greensboro, AL is the catfish capitol of...hmmm...something. Anyway, they raise catfish there, and it is amazing. Some friends with big fryers came to do the honors.
Like manna from heaven.
Well, there are many more pictures I could inflict upon you. Like the guys watching the sky for the return of our Lord. (Actually, David was flying his remote control helicopter. Really cool!)
Or my dear brother wowing the young ones.
Or pics of my wonderful parents.
I could do that. But I think I'll stop now.
Let the basking continue!
