Every now and again we manage to gather the majority of the family from around the world to one spot. With seven kids/grandkids/nieces-n-nephews age nine and under the house fills rapidly… very rapidly! We had so much fun. One Uncle taught the kids to shoot the bow. An Aunt made a portrait of a picture. And yet another Uncle got into character as Mr X from Scotland Yard. And, of course, we lit our Christmas tree, with homemade decorations and real candles.
