We made it out to Ruby Valley, Nevada just in time for the annual Neff Family Christmas party. We filled up on yummy homemade soups, breads, candies, pies, and other goodies.
The children all dressed up to act out the Nativity from the bible.
And then Santa Ben passed out a gift to everyone! Emery was his little elf and helped pass them out. Earlier Emery told me he wanted to help Santa deliver gifts on Christmas eve. This is as close as he got :)
Lucy and I had lots of time to hang out together most days. Joel was usually working on the ranch and Emery was "helping" out Grandma Kathy!
On Christmas eve we had the big family dinner. It's times like these I am so glad to be a visitor and not the hostess! We had 21 plates set!
Here is Joel's brother Sam and his wife Mary (holding hands). Also at the table were Joel's niece Vivian and a friend Janie.
Then there is Bill, Carol, Carol's sister and Grandma Kathy (at the head of the table)-the Awesome chef of the feast!
