Mennel Family Christmas

What a wonderful Mennel Family Christmas! Gathering with family is the highlight of the holidays for me. This year our family welcomed five new babies, Kalen, Abby, Claire, Griffin & Claire. So our family has grown even more! I just love getting together with Grandma & Grandpa, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Spouses and lots of little ones! We had 67 (I think) in attendance this year!

Santa (Jason), my cousin Jenni with their twins Griffin & Claire. This picture makes me so happy! Every time I see it I get the warm feeling all over that God is in complete control and brings all things in His time.

With a family of 100, we require a bit more space than a living room. I think the bigger our family gets, the greater the amount of love we share. I love sharing these special times with my cousins and their children as we reminisce about Christmases of our youth.

Here Grandma attempts to take Marilyn up to Santa. As you can see, Marilyn wants NOTHING to do with it. She even tried to climb down Mom. Funny though, not even five minutes later she yelled, "Hi Santa, Nice to See You!" Kids are so funny.
