The Dupuis Family Christmas

We call our annual christmas gathering with my husband's family
the Griswold family Christmas.

The adults draw the name of one child to buy a gift for and then the adults have a yankee swap after. This is just a few of the kids there is a total of 10 kids and 15 adults so quite a crowd with lots of noise and and fun. there is an annual round of cards and the kids are happy to play with each other and their gifts. And of course food lots and lots of food.

I haven't made this almond tea bread in years.
It is so good.
I have my challenge rug all done and bound I don't think I can show it here but if I find out I am wrong I will post it.
It is a tribute to our little kitty who adopted us and stayed for 20 years. 
Well the gifts are bought and some are wrapped. We have friends in on Christmas eve and then on to Christmas with my sweet B.

Great idea for a large family and looks like the kids had fun.
I can't believe there are only 3 more days, I need another week at least, lol.
