Christmas in Kentucky

We had the joy of hosting Christmas this year with my whole Gayer family!! All four brothers came, one sis-in-law, 2 parents, and one sweet nephew. In the words of my husband, "we had a rockin' good time!!". Our festivities included, rook games, ping pong tournaments, 1st annual Gayer talent show, traditional cinnamon roll Christmas breakfast, advent candles, lots of PS3 and movies on the big screen, Ben learning how to ride his new rip stick (and other family members trying as well, i was very nervous for people's hips), sushi dinner that Ben & kristen made, great conversation, eggnog, lots of fun with Sampson (B& K's mini dauchsand), a lot of presents, a good bit of drama from our sweet girls, and well lots of other fun times!!
