Christmas in Indy is always special. We made it Independence a little behind schedule, but other than that, the weekend was perfect. Last year we started a new tradition to have the family Christmas the weekend before Christmas. While it still feels like we're settling into the new tradition, the weekend was a blast, full of great food (although there were some missing regulars :)), wonderful conversation and the peace you get when you're surrounded by family. I'm so lucky that I married into a family that I love as much as my own.
Although painful, Jay's family has a wonderful tradition of taking family pictures of each of the families after dinner but before talent/presents. I am missing some shots of Debbie's family so I will have to remedy that by getting shots from Stevenie or Nicole.
