Sheffield Family Christmas | 2016.

We had our annual family gathering yesterday at my sister's.

We've been doing this for years (maybe 20?) and the tradition has evolved into simply gathering on a holiday afternoon with fun food and drinks. Of course, "simply gathering" is a challenge now that three of the cousins live out of state, but everyone was there (and my mom is excited to be joining the party next year).

No more group photos either (here's one from 2008). It's hard enough to get everyone in one room! Here are most of us, listening to younger niece Paula read Merry Christmas, Curious George. This was her first time reading a book out loud to an audience and she did a fine job. She even grabbed Charlie's attention for a few minutes (no small feat given everything else that was going on).

I think we'll definitely need to try the group photo next year. What fun to have two toddlers in the mix! This little one will likely not be quite so still.

Today Marc is back to work and Sara & I have plans to binge-watch The OA (we're on Episode 4 now and's crazy!... Sara's already watched the first season and promises all will become clear to me soon.) Good thing my knitting projects don't require much thought!

Happy Tuesday!

Family gatherings over Christmas are the absolute best, especially when there are generations involved. Too soon, the littles will be grown ...yep, a group photo next year will be a wonderful addition to the family treasure trove. Enjoy your binge watching of OA and knit on!

How wonderful to have the family grow and still have (almost) everyone get together! I might have to watch a few episodes of the OA; I've run out of good things to watch on Netflix and really can't watch The Crown one more time!

How nice to have everyone gathered! :-) I've heard good things/interesting things about The OA . . . must give it a look.

I've started watching the 2nd season of The Man in the High Castle, but can't watch more than one episode at a time...I'm on the edge of my seat for every episode! The OA looks interesting, I'll check it out.

I've never heard of The OA! Hm. What a fun gathering... we have a little of that coming up at the end of the week.

I've not heard of The OA. How wonderful to have family close enough to gather at Christmas and enjoy a few hours together.

It was a lovely day-we are so lucky to have this time together. Yes, we need to do a group photo next year.

As our families expand and grow, we've adopted a new day to celebrate with my siblings and nephews. We are all spread out over the country now and not everyone came be together at the same time, but we do our best.

it helps that my two siblings live in the area... gives the nieces and nephew a reason to come back!

What a merry family gathering! And with a toddler in attendance - well, that's the best. : ) The OA sounds interesting - I'll have to check it out.
