Christmas #2 with Na-naw and Paw-paw

So, two posts ago, I recorded our Christmas with Na-naw and Paw-paw (Mama's parents).  Well, we had another Christmas with them!  My Aunt and family live out of town so we don't get to celebrate Christmas with them on Christmas Day.  They usually come down and visit a day or two after Christmas, staying through the New Year, so we do another Christmas with them when we can get everyone together again. :)

This year our "second Christmas" took place the Friday after Christmas.

Everyone pitched in for dinner and we had a delicious meal of sausage casserole, tuna casserole, chicken nuggets (for those who don't like the casseroles ;), vegetables and yummy desserts!

Uncle Sean fixed the sausage casserole.

Aunt Mae-Mae made the tuna casserole...

 ...and Aunt T.C. brought the chicken nuggets.

The very delicious corn! :)
Everyone else brought the vegetables, desserts, or whatever else was needed. :)

 My Aunt Amanda made the delicious Dirt Pudding for dessert.  It was gone in a very short amount of time!  That stuff is almost heavenly (how can you go wrong with Cool Whip, pudding, and lots of Oreos?)!

After dinner, Na-naw and Paw-paw, and an assortment of kids, grandkids, spouses, etc. filled the living room.

Na-naw and Paw-paw started off the evening festivities with the opening of their presents to each other.  (They do their presents when the whole family is together.)  Then they opened the presents from their children.

Then if Mama and her siblings had presents for each other, they opened those. :)

After those gifts were opened, it was time for a game of:

Some people watched a movie while the adults played the game.

I stayed and watched the game and there were quite a few hilarious moments!
White Elephant was the last game of the night.  Before everyone left, though, Mama and her siblings had to sit on the steps like they've done every year before. :)

As usual, Uncle Sean and Aunt Mae-Mae were hilarious!

I think that this picture was the most "normal" picture out of all the ones I took! :)

We normally end the night with their picture on the steps, but this year we did something new!  We got a picture of all of Na-naw and Paw-paw's grandchildren on the steps too!  (Actually we missed the youngest Nash grandchild, Cameron, who was sleeping...)

Thanks to Mama for taking this picture!  We tried to organize it so that the children descended down the steps in age order.  It was quite a squish to fit all 21 of us on the steps but somehow we made it!  (My cousin, Asher, was not at all happy about being separated from his Mama.  Can you guess which one is Asher? :)

So, our last Christmas celebration ended with lots of fun and family!

P.S. - Here's one last Christmas picture for you:
