Last night was the Atkins Family Christmas. Even with so many missing, (Phil and Paul, Lael, Lynsey, Kate, Marty and Bridged) it still managed to be fun and filled with noise and laughter. We skyped with Marty and Bridged and Kate in Zurich, Switzerland, and were endlessly entertained by Nora’s energy! It’s so fun to have little ones at Christmas again!
And don’t we just look like a dream of a couple?
Don’t be fooled. We were actually having a power struggle over where to place our hands. Rick was trying to push my hand away, but whoever caught this shot (Joey, I think) caught it just right!
Laura and I reminisced about all the Christmases we spent with all the kids lined up taking turns opening their gifts. With things changing so fast now, kids getting married and grandbabies coming, I’m so glad to have had so many years of shared memories and I look forward to what the changes in our families bring!
