This is the year that we are going to San Diego for Christmas to visit Anissa's family. That means we will be having an early Christmas with my family. Since our house is in the middle. We invited everyone over to have Early Christmas here. We got together around 1pm for a Mini Birthday Party for Anissa and I.Then
we started our Christmas. Everyone gathered in the living room around the tree. The kids passed out the gifts and from youngest to oldest we took turns opening up our presents. We got some really nice stuff. Once the gifts were opened we had our talent night. EVERYONE has to do SOMETHING, no matter how big or small. Kylee played her flute , Kelsie, Autumn, & Aubrey danced, Anissa, Mom, Rachel, and Art shared stories/thoughts Logan, Preston, and Kurt performed Jingle Bells and Logan & Preston also danced, Davis shared art (manger scene), and Ashlyn read her poem "A Brentwood Christmas". I played Christmas music on my guitar and everyone sang along. We ended the night with wonderful dinner prepared by Anissa, Rachel, Mom, and Becky. We were able to all fit around our dining room table. This will probably be the last year to do that at our house, but we had a great time together.
