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!
Candace and J.J.Molly and LindyThe kickball teams – the opponents.My team.Anna came ready to play – game face ON!Will wasn’t feeling great that day. He got lots of extra cuddles from everyone.Adrian and baby Lucas.Kelsey – This girl has a hard head. I know this because in the kickball game we banged heads at first base. Abbey and Kelsey – I love these girls! They have turned into beautiful girls who a lot of fun! I still think of Abbey and Kelsey as the little girls who danced ALL night long at our wedding 8.5 years ago!I mean they seriously danced all night! Abbey with Ed and Kelsey with Drew. Sisters – Candace, Abbey, and Kelsey – Have you ever seen 3 prettier sisters???The girls and their crazy father, Mike.Jamie and LindyAfter we got home Will laid on the couch. He rebounded and was fine the next day. I think it was just the first day of our THIRD cold that had him down.
