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.

Isabelle was so excited about getting to open presents!

Looks like fun! What a nice big family... Our seems to get smaller and smaller every year, with people moving away. (with us usually being one of them!) It is nice to see families that live close to each other.
