Christmas Eve with the Marlinks

We always spend Christmas Eve with the Marlinks, a whole day of family fun and togetherness; probably my favorite day of the whole year. It was wonderful for the boys to spend time with their cousins, and for the most part they play really well together and LOVE each other! We ate lots of good food, went to church and were able to relax and enjoy the day, it was wonderful!
Merry Christmas!!!
Oma's yummy breakfast: raspberry cheese-coffee cake, and spinach and eggs

Playing our favorite board game, Ticket to Ride. It was so fun to be able to actually have the boys play with us!
Mid-afternoon Lego session
Smack down!
Favorite present of all the boys: the talking "Cars" and Tiger Hats - Thanks Uncle Jesse!
Garrett and his pillow pet. He was so excited he whispered "pillow pet" when he opened it, so precious!
Uncle Jesse was in charge of the steaks, and he did a bang-up job.
Ready for supper, YUM!
Our beautiful girl
Good thing Uncle Chris and Aunt Becky are having a girl...there wont be room for all 6 grand kids in the tub next year. Campbell and "Baby ?" will have plenty of room though for their tub time!
And to end the nigh, all the boys cuddled together for some books, and then put to bed...finally quiet...and time for the adult party!
