Johnson Family Christmas

The Johnson (and Mansel) Clan

Our Johnson Family Christmas party was held early Christmas Eve day. Russ and Megan took Granmomma and Pop out to breakfast while the rest of us gathered at their house to set up their Christmas/birthday gift....a new TV. We all surprised them when they returned!
We spent the rest of the day watching UP on the new TV, playing Scrabble, visiting, eating, and of course exchanging gifts. The three sister-in-laws...Megan, Jenny, and I all immensely enjoy shopping, wrapping and giving Christmas gifts! It was a really fun day!

We let the children exchange gifts first, then they play while the adults exchange. This year, Will moved into the "adult" present opening! He's growing up!
