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.
