We were rushed a little bit to get to town after a late night so we met the Watkins fam at church for the Christmas Eve service. So glad we made it!
Papa and his posse!
We've started this little thing on Christmas Eve where we have a fish fry. The men in our family, especially Papa usually have a good supply of fish. Its different than the usual fluffy dinner and yes, its a little white trash but who doesn't like fried fish, hush puppies, texas two step coleslaw and some baked beans. The Bees in this house get fired up about Papa's fish!
Papa and his mini-me, Graham.
Anna Lou Whoo
Little white trash baby hanging out in her tights looking a lot like Daddy.
After dinner Papa read the Christmas story from Luke while the natives were extremely restless and hardly paying attention. Once he finished Honey handed out the baby Jesus(s) to her nativity sets so the cousins to could put him in the mangers. Little Honey Tradition.
Then we tried to take a picture. Took too long...
but finally got one.
