Last night (the 23rd) was the Larkin Family Christmas Extravaganza. It's quite an ordeal- Lisa's aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents all come by for food, singing and Santa (keep in mind, Lisa's father is one of 9 kids, so there's a lot of people). This was Mary's first time meeting Santa. Here are a couple pictures (not great quality, sorry) and the video of Mary receiving her first ever Christmas gift (clothes); somewhere around 38 seconds you can hear my thoughts on the present. These also feature Lisa's craftiness; it's hard to see, but she stitched an "M" on Mary's shirt right before the party. Martha Stewart ain't got nothing on her.
Lastly, here is a pic of the immediate family. Not a bad looking family, even with me in it. The last picture is from tonight's Christmas Eve celebration. We'll have more pictures of Mary's first Christmas in the coming days. Until then, Mary, Lisa and I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas!
