Once we finished opening presents at our house, the kids started playing with their new stuff while Josh and I began cleaning up the aftermath of Christmas morning. Then we ate some breakfast, got ready for the day, picked Ross and my sister up from the airport, and headed over to my Uncle Brad's house.
And when I saw my Uncle Brad wearing a buffalo hat, I knew it was going to be a fun evening.
That's Ross, showing Roshelle the "I love you Ross" bracelet Annie made for him.
Sam & Jesse playing video games.
My Uncle Donnie considering how he might look with a toupee.
Sammy and his girlfriend, Jasmine.
The boys, saying their greetings.
The girls, loving on all the pups in the house.
And did I mention that there's another photographer in the family now? (Ross is taking my current online class.)
My Grandpa and Bev.
More puppy loving. (For the record, none of those puppies are ours.)
Hanging out in the garage while everyone played pool.
Annie doing hair. (Braids are her new specialty.)
Meanwhile, back in the house...
My Uncle Donnie had fallen asleep - which makes you fair game in this family. (You can actually see my Uncle Brad in the background, calling Jessie over so they could scheme up a plan.)
First, Donnie narrowly escaped the attack of a wild buffalo.
Then, a dramatic knife-fight ensued behind him.
And then...Well, I can't even really mention the whole fruit thing, nor can I show the next photo in this series, because this is a family-friendly blog you know.
And then there were presents.
Coley was Santa (though I have no idea what Santa was doing with a wine glass in his hand.)
And there's still more to come...
