Collins' First Christmas

**WARNING picture overload**

We headed to Galva on the 22nd and stayed until Christmas morning. We went to 2 birthday parties,  2 Christmas's, introduced Collins to lots of people and had a great time spending time with family.

The day after Christmas we went bowling. Nana Jana, Amber and Tara had to work but the rest of us had a great time. The kids bowl better then I do.

Little one slept and I made sure everyone cleaned their hands before touching her :)
Lastly, we had our 4th Christmas on Saturday with my dad's side of the family

Dad desperately needed a coffee maker. The clock on his didn't work and the only way he knew how to set it was a light turned on at midnight so he would count to five for 5am.

Majority of the Longs. We missed Amy and her family and my aunt, uncle and 2 cousins
Guess only a few of us got the be silly memo

He got scared if anyone else wore it but he loved wearing it himself

 Our family always gathers in the kitchen
There is no greater gift than this one...
