Witten Family Christmas!

More Christmas Traditions!Every year the Witten family gets together to celebrate Christmas, usually the weekend after New Years. With 8 Witten children & their spouses, 30 grandchildren, a few of their spouses and 6 great grandchildren that is a huge group. It is so much fun getting together.

This year we celebrated at Terri and Jim's new beautiful home in Northern California. They have a home big enough to hold us all. It was so much fun! We spent the first day having our Christmas party and talent show.My Dad starts the show each year by giving us a Witten family update. This year I had him announce my news...I was called to serve as the President of the Relief Society a few days earlier. I have been so busy, that's why it has taken me so long to post the 2nd Christmas post.Some of my favorite acts this year... Sheri and her kids singing, Terri's boys rocking out on their new electric guitars and my very favorite...
Ollie showing us 5 different ways to hold a pup
Grandma has been busy making Yo Gabba Gabba hats, ponchos and quilts. She is so talented. Wendy in her cute gift from her great grandma... a Foofa poncho
The next day we went to San Fransisco and had a blast! Shopping, riding the street cars, eating clam chowder in a bread bowl...yum! It was cold!
We are waiting in line for the Street car and having fun just being together.

The last day we went to Yosemite. We ice skated in an awesome out door rink and played in the snow. Yosemite is so pretty in the Winter

I vote for going to Terri & Jim's every year!
