Christmas Eve Espy Family Party

Every Christmas Eve the big Espy family has their annual eating! We had a great time eating, laughing, talking, opening presents and then playing with the presents. We have out grown being able to have our party at someone's house so we use the community room at Mason's Funeral home. It is great because we don't have to pay to use it, it has ovens and a huge stove top. It also has a monster big ice maker. We are able to use the room and then work together to clean up and noone is STUCK with cleanup! Here are some pictures from this year's Christmas dinner.

One of the many "clicks"
Seems like we gather in certain little groups when we first arrive.

Picture with Santa

David and Nick with the Santa at Chickamagua's Christmas in the streets. The boys made crafts, played games and "shopped". Then wrapped the gifts they found. We also had lunch with Uncle Danny, Aunt Lynne', Abby, Nana, Aunt Danielle and Noah.
