The 8th day of Christmas. Today we opened a big “For Everyone” gift from our friends full of fun craft items and games.

For supper we enjoyed Clara’s Christmas meal choice…RIBS! Phil smoked these and they were as amazing as they look.

After supper we let the babies open more gifts. These were the gifts they purchased with their own money for one another. Each year we do a name drawing and Phil takes them to the dollar store to get a couple things for who they drew. I like how excited they get to do this and that it gives them an opportunity to be giving.

    What fun celebrations y’all have! I love how everybody is smiling for the Hot Chocolate party, I know that would make ME smile! That’s a great idea to let them draw names and enjoy the thrill of giving. I remember your Mama encouraging me to pass around a little blue velvet looking purse for my older siblings to put in a few coins around Christmastime, and then she’d take me shopping at Kress’s to buy a little something for Mama and Daddy (I think that’s who I bought for!). I was very young so some of the details are sketchy. Aunt Leah
