Anna & the Christmas Sweaters

A week or so ago I learned we'd all be wearing tacky sweaters to Christmas lunch this year. By then most of the stores and internet sites were mostly sold out. I shopped at six different stores and fought a suitable garment, knowing it would be hard to compete. 
After Matthew and I arrived at 10:30 Sunday night
Anna had found her award-winning jumper, which had been hand-made by Ceil long before Anna had been born.

As usual, the kids sang The Twelve Days of Christmas.
Close up: Ceil hand-painted the tree,
with ornaments attached with velcro.
In Cartersville Will and MC celebrated at the Gilberts,
with Rose Bowl tickets and gear.

Anna paired her Vans sneakers with her Christmas jumper.
Joan displayed all her Christmas carolers.
Here are some of them.
Last week Ceil made another batch
of homemade paintbrush cookies for her art classes.
