On Saturday evening we went to Josh’s grandparent’s home for our first family Christmas celebration. Josh’s grandparents have 6 children, 14 grandchildren and (so far) 9 great grandchildren. (If I am counting correctly) So once you add in spouses you have a full house.
Pretty much the entire clan was there on Saturday, I think 36 in total (there were a few that weren’t able to join us and they were missed.) The house was tight with people but it was a treat to have the chance to see everyone. The girls had a blast playing with cousins and I know Josh enjoys getting to chat with his cousins, aunts and uncles. A good time had by all.
What a blessing for Bill and June (Josh’s grandparents) to look at there home bursting at the seams with loved ones. One day, I hope to have a house just as full.
Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them
Psalm 127:3-5 (KJV)
Anna was in pure heaven being chased by cousins. I love that laugh.
