This was our first Christmas without my father in law, and we all felt his absence pretty acutely, none more so than my mother in law. She is doing well adjusting to life without him, but it is HARD.
My sister in law with two of her kids.
Probably the most fun we had together was playing "Just Dance" on our new xbox. Even *I* danced!! And what good exercise, wow! I was panting and huffing and puffing like crazy. I should do that every day and I would soon be a skinny minny. ;)
Just after midnight on New Year's Eve. Happy New Year!! My mother in law was talking to her other son on the phone, so even though he was away at work he was in the picture too!
After sleeping in very late on New Year's Day, we later had a family sharing time where everyone gave an update on their lives and told us what we could be praying for them throughout this next year. Before sharing time, everyone's phones had to be relinquished. :)
Proof that my sister in law can dance!
