So then, after we were loaded up on ice cream from Durbins, we drove to Decatur. It is the only time all year that all of his sisters and their families are all together. Betty, his mom, always does a fabulous job making everyone feel right at home and making enormous meals for the big crowd. I don't know how she does it!
My kids love to see their cousins -- they range from 1 year old to 26, but they all have fun playing guitar and games together, and this year Ben added a harmonica to the mix!
Jacob loving his new Transformer helmet, mismatched pajamas (he HAD to wear them that way), his new fuzzy robe and his new crazy socks from Alaska
Jennifer & Donna (Jonathan's sisters) and Jonathan with their grandmother, Mother Leva - 92 and going strong!

Thanks, Betty & Scott for housing and cooking for 26 for 3 days!! Merry Christmas everyone!
