Last night, we joined Cary's brother's family over at my MIL Darlene's for a very fun Christmas celebration and a Mexican dinner.  Here are a few of the family photos of the evening.

What a handsome family and I loved it that Cary smiled big time in that last one.

What I want to know is this: How did you get everyone to sit still for photos? My beloveds always get so antsy! Great pics. Thanks for sharing!

Nice photos of the family!

What a happy time! And such a handsome family. I'm glad you all had such a great time. We went to my sister's in Highland IN and we watched our beloved Bulls pull off a huge upset of the Los Angeles Lakers. Too bad our Bears got crushed by our hated rivals, the Packers.

Yeah...Cary smiled in one of them! And you, Kathy, are always so happy! I love the photos of you. Great looking family!
