Finally, Christmas pictures (-:! We spent nearly two weeks visiting our families down in Des Moines (Altoona) and Dubuque (Potosi). The boys had some trouble sleeping but thoroughly enjoyed their grandparents and aunts and uncles, etal. We began the festivities by celebrating Christmas Eve with the greater Johannsen family at Brad's grandmother's house. Here Atticus is playing Christmas Bingo with Grandma Nancy.
Cousin Max hangs out nearby.
Great-Grandma Trellis in the very back chair. She was able to visit with the boys a few times the week we were there but I didn't get photos the other times -- Sorry, Trellis!
