Christmas with Tom's Family

Okay...what do you get when you mix 2 grandparents, 10 kids, and 18 grandkids? Well, chaos! But lots of fun and love too!

This is Tom's family at our house Christmas night. The kids range in age from 18 down to 9 months!

I tried to get some good individual shots of the kids, but it was hard to catch them!

This is Deena's son, Nate...the oldest grandchild.

This is Joleen (Julie's third).

Rebekah's husband, Rob (who built my awesome house!) and Tom's Dad (Grandad Gary)

Erin's husband, Jason, & Julie's husband, Dusty

This is our baby fight. Sweet Adalee just loves to grab Caleb and hold on, but he doesn't seem to enjoy it so much!

She was very upset that she got into some trouble. But she is still so cute!

Julie sitting with her youngest child, Joshua (orange hood), Erin's second, Zephaniah (white shirt), and Ethan, Rebekah's second (blue shirt).

Garrison playing Ultimate Band with Julie's second, Josiah.

Nana Sandy (Tom's mom) & Grandad...getting a good laugh at the gift Tom picked out for our "dirty Santa" game.

Here is cute little Judah...Erin's 3rd child. Aunt Nikki framed a few photos for gifts and Judah really, REALLY liked his!

This is my little Gracie-girl (Deena's youngest) and Lydia Grace (Erin's oldest).

Another one of Lydia that I think is just too cute!

Here..Hannah Beth & Matthew...Deena's second and third...looking so grown up!

Adalee much happier. She likes to pose for pics for me!

Here's a great pic of Tom & Deena. I am pretty sure this is the BIGGEST smile I have ever gotten in a pic from my sweet husband, so enjoy while you can!

And check this out...Tom with his youngest sister, Nikki. How beautiful is she! It's like we blinked and she grew up! I remember giving her baths in their sink when we were little girls! YIKES!

Hannah, Hadassah (Bekah's oldest), & Julianna (Julie's oldest)...all holding their new video cameras. I may not have gotten any girls of my own, but God sure gave me a slew of adorable nieces!
