On Saturday morning, some of us went to watch my nieces basketball game. I think they are waiting for a rebound...or they are praising Jesus. Not sure.
Then we had a festive time celebrating Christmas. Whenever we have holiday celebrations on days other than the actual holiday, I like to pretend it's still really the actual holiday. I tend to make comments like, "Who's calling on Christmas day?" if the phone rings. I'm a dork. I know. Unfortunately, Adam came down with some sort of bug on "Christmas" day and he spent most of the day feeling sick and hiding out in a bedroom. Good thing I know him so well, otherwise I might be afriad he didn't like my family.
How could he not like these people? :)
Grandma and Grandpa with all of their grandkids.
My brothers and I. I'm really surprised I didn't get any bunny ears in any of the pictures taken. They've mellowed out with age. :)
Next big gathering is Strahm Vacation 2011! The hope was to find a vacation house that all 17 of us could stay in within the midwest somewhere. Oh, and it had to be affordable for everyone. After a week of searching and phone calls and emails, it's been pretty discouraging. Back-up plan is vacation at the Willis estate (ahem, that's our house). I'm still hopeful that something will pan out, but if not, we'll have a big party at our place with fun excursions and lots of good times.
