Christmas in Ankeny

Christmas Eve, we were in Ankney with Heather's family. Brent, Doreen, Grandma Gloria, the OC Vande Lunes and the Pella Vande Lunes...all on the couch for a group pic! Merry Christmas.
Heather playing with Karys' hair while Addy watches with curiosity.
The pony stopped by with Aaron and Nathan holding on for the ride!
Nathan jumps from his dad's back to my shoulders...without warning!
We headed downstairs to open presents! Addy was super excited about her new baby, she found some discarded wrapping paper that worked perfectly as a baby blanket!
Nathan was jazzed about his "new" sled.
Flashlights were also a big hit!
Grandma and Grandpa with the grand kids...CHEESE!
After opening all the gifts, the three cousins got bundled up to head out into the snow!
Papa Brent and Aaron settled in to watch a Christmas movie.
...and Heather and Gracie found a chair and a good book!
We had a great time in Ankeny, lots of good food, lots of fun. We are very grateful for the generosity of our family. Merry Christmas!
