Extended Southern Family Christmas

Saturday we had Christmas with the whole Southern side of the family.  This was the first Christmas without Nanny (who passed away a couple weeks ago) and she was definitely missed.

Nanny had three kids: Joan, Mike, and Bob.  (Bob is my father-in-law).  Joan has one daughter who is married and Mike has four kids, two of whom are married with kids.  Bob has 3 kids, two married with kids.  It’s a pretty big group of Southerns that get together!

We had lunch at Joan’s house and then the kids opened presents.  And then it was time for the Southern Family kickball game.  They have been playing Christmas (and sometimes Thanksgiving) kickball for 25 years.  It’s always a good time, even if my team lost!
