Christmas Eve with the Barkey Clan!

Our Christmas Eve began by celebrating with my 91 year old mother.  We reserved a party room at her assisted living facility and met there at 4:00 o'clock for appetizers.

This is my mom holding her youngest great-grandchild, Ellie [Elizabeth], who is five months old.

Four Generations
Oldest Son, Steve, with his wife, Sharon, and daughters, Brooke [L] and Brianna
Daughter Lori, with her daughters, Marissa [L], and Tiffany
Youngest Son, Jeremy, with his wife, Samantha,
 and their children Ellie, Landon and Isabella
Tiffany with her boyfriend, John
Three oldest granddaughters, Marissa, Tiffany and Brianna
We returned to our house around 7:00 p.m. to have our Christmas Tree and eat dinner
Brooke, Isabella and Landon are anxious to pass out the presents.

Brooke was happy with her Lego present. 
Steve took the photo below of Ellie on his i-phone, and posted it on his Facebook page.  I copied it to share here.   Her first Christmas is so special!

 Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good Night!


  1. Loved seeing your family gathering. How very special. Isn't it funny but when we had four generations together at Thanksgiving we didn't take a four generation photo. My MIL is still upset about that. We did get one of the whole family, but she wanted one of just the four generations. Oh dear, we are not use to doing these sort of things. Have a lovely day tomorrow. Merry Christmas!

  2. What a lovely family Christmas! I enjoyed "meeting" your beautiful family. Merry Christmas to you and yours. May God's blessings be with you all in 2013.

  3. What beautiful pictures Phyllis! I especially love the last one! Brings back happy memories of Christmases past!! Hope you have a wonderful holiday!!

  4. What a wonderful Christmas Eve! I love seeing all the pictures of your family (and what a blessing to have them all together!) but that 4generations picture is a real treasure. Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and all the blessings of this Holy season.

  5. Great photos! What a nice family, and two great gatherings. Merry Christmas!
