Trivelas Family Christmas
This year Christmas was a bit different...
Every January my wife's side have our Christmas celebration together at her parents house in Buckley, but this time we didn't go to their actually home. We went & stayed in Downtown Buckley at the house they are remodeling to use as an event location for women to craft, scrap book & do many other things.
The Lady ChristmasThis statue happend to be underneath the Christmas tree and I loved how the lights from the tree reflected off her and made her color glow and stand out. My little Micah ManI love my little Micah Man's smile! He can light up a room with his tender hearted joy. Here he is with his new backpack from his Nona & Popa! Family GameYup that is the real title of the game they are playing. But, I also love how this family actually spends time together when they have celebrations & parties. No TV or other distractions. Just quality conversations, games & the like. :) Prank gift boxOnce the package was unwrapped this is what you saw & it was a good laugh.
Every year the Trivelas' do what they call a Penny Grab.
The object is to reach into this big tin can and grab as many pennies as you can and put them into your bowl. The rules are still a bit fuzzy but once you get your pennies you are to count them and the fun part is seeing who can get the most pennies.
This year I broke the 300 totally pennies mark with a whopping 311 pennies. I thought I had it in the bag. A win for sure. NOT - Issy's brother Jeremy knocked down my house of cards with something like 345 pennies. WOW how can you get that many pennies into one hand. Try it. It's a fun game.
The night carried on and we played games, shot silhouette portraits of us & the kids, opened presents and just had a grand time hanging out as a family.
I am so thankful to our great God for allowing me the blessing of having so many wonderful family members surrounding me.
CHERISH YOUR LOVED ONES & DON'T TAKE YOUR TIME WITH THEM FOR GRANTED. YOU NEVER KNOW HOW LONG YOU'LL GET!
Beautiful! Thanks for sharing these!
