Friday Fave: Family Festivities

FAMILY was definitely the theme of this year's holiday celebrations. Before Christmas, we had Dan's brother's family over for a little dinner party, my parents and brother and sister-in-law came here for a lovely Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and then we headed west for a get-together with more of Dan's family.

Time spent in Lynden is always fun and it was really neat to see Lana play more with her cousins. There's quite a group of Lenssen kiddos, and this picture doesn't even show them all.
Yeah, getting them all to hold still and look in the same general direction is not nearly as easy as you'd guess.

Lana loved playing with the other little girls, but probably enjoyed her time with big-girl Holly the most. Lana was fascinated by Holly's piano-playing talents. Holly was so patient and sweet and would sit with Lana at Sue's small organ whenever Lana would ask.
I love this picture because you can see Lana's sheer delight and Holly's sweetness as well as Lana trying to have light and delicate hands like her cousin. Perhaps piano lessons are in our future?

Thanks Family! Our time spent with all of you was wonderful!
