Family Fun at Christmas
The event is called “Grandma’s Christmas.” Our family is so large that we have stopped exchanging gifts and have started concentrating on food and fun. However, there is this little thing called “the brown paper bag” which is most eagerly anticipated!
Anticipation builds as she waits and then yells, “Go!” sending what is usually a quiet home into a frenzy of fun, laughter and activity as papers is ripped apart, packages are opened and what is produced is some kind of nerf toy that brings forth good natured attacks.
This free for all last about fifteen minutes and at that time, the only tears shed are from laughter and photos are snapped!
Afterwards, the grandkids are ushered outside to play as the adults clean up.
