After the real gift exchange we sent the kids into the TV room and the adults had our annual White Elephant Gift Exchange. It was a blast. Here Jon is modeling the Daddy Saddle he picked. What a good sport!
Christmas with the Gleason’s
This year for Gleason family Christmas, we met at Grandma and Grandpa’s (as usual), and had a yummy ham dinner with all the fixings. After dinner we all hung out for a couple hours to let the food settle. Then we got out a table full of snacks and treats and started the gift exchange. In the past each person has chosen a person to give gifts to, but this year, since most of us are working on a total money makeover 🙂 we decided that each family would just draw another family. So the exchange went quicker than usual, but still a lot of fun! The kids also each got a gift from Grandma and Grandpa Gleason, and Great-Grandma Freeman who is living there now. It was a lot of fun. The best part of the holidays is the chance to spend so much time with our families. We are so blessed with big families that we love to be around!
