Yesterday was the big Engelsma Christmas party which also coincides with Grandpa E's birthday. Roughly estimated, there were probably eighty people present. Everyone brings a hot and a cold dish and if there is anything Engelsmas know how to do, its cook. So there is always plenty to go around. After dinner, we sang Christmas carols and the kids got to open their gifts. This was the first year Andrew got to participate, not that he knew what was going on. His cousin Levi had his name and he received a Mother Goose book and also a pop-up book about big machines. We'll have to put those away for a few years!
