Part 1

Well, the Christmas adventures have begun - and some have already passed on.  David & family came on the 17th and left today. Not nearly long enough.  We fell in love with their two little girls and cousins met each other.
Obviously Cecily adores Mia - she kept trying to hold her up.

 Ella looks a little uncertain here and was quite overwhelmed at first at the Jack/Jim Clark Family Christmas party. (First ever in our history.)
 This little girl has puppy dog eyes that make you melt.
 Gabe, Eva and Hans went outside and made a volcano just for John. It was too cold to make a snowman but they were determined to get that volcano. So John, this picture is for you. We wanted you to know that we are thinking about you and wishing you and your family were here, too.

 The Lokodis have a lot of fun wrestling. They really get into a tangle.  Only Cecily seemed to be worried about her buried mother.
 David took this picture. I fixed it and it's adorable!
 Yes, Chad came after 29 hours traveling from Buffalo, NY. He came to the family party. He's real. He's legit and I think we're going to see a lot of him from now on. Kaitlin floated all night long.
More to come as the week unfolds.  Jason and Michelle are on the way up the hill to Elk Ridge. They have made it safely. I can guarantee that this is a trip they will never forget - two days stuck in Lincoln. But they are here. It's late so I'm going to tuck everybody in for the night.

Mike made up captions for all of these pictures but I've decided to only include one. For the picture of everyone wrestling (the first one) he says, "Eva and Gabe do not want another sibling"

Glad you are all having fun.

I want you to send all the other captions, please! I think that would be super funny..... so pass them along.
