1: 'Twas the time of year To gather here; Some came from afar; Others, already near.

2: Fresh fallen snow swirled all around; Casting a lightness over the ground.

3: 25 December Christmas Day 2010. No longer children. Instead, women and men. | The oldest was 80. The youngest, 18. The rest of us landing gracefully somewhere in between!

4: First to arrive were Mike, Erin and Lindee. | Traveling all the way from Kansas City!

6: Don, Cyndi, Wrigley, Andy and Reid Drove in from Des Moines (but they did not speed!)

7: Sheri and Ryan arrived from Oskaloosa. And, no I did not say Lollapalooza!

8: Thank goodness for the rest, there was no need to fly! | Kelly, Steve and Sally were already close by.

9: And Bob and Imo were all snuggled in. So happy to be spending time with their kin.

10: A bit of wine had been imbibed by the time 'ole Santa did arrive!

11: There were games, good food and Turtles galore! | No one could have asked for anything more!

13: Presents were distributed all around. But the gift of this family is what is quite profound!

14: Belly laughs ring out and memories unfold. Family times like these are worth much more than gold! The bells, they jingle. The evening ends. Time moves forward once again.

16: One year follows another. Nephews, nieces, daughters, sons. Sisters, brothers, father, mother. A legacy of love is clear! Evident in merry times as we draw near!

17: And as 'ole Santa heads out to his sleigh, a message for all I heard him say. | "Keep each other close in heart.; no matter whether together or far apart." And giving a nod, away he did fly - up into the bright Walcott sky!

18: This book is lovingly dedicated to Marie Wissink Van Mechelen. Mother, Grandmother, & Great-Grandmother. She loved returning to Iowa for Christmas. Marie left this world on 2/28/2010. She is missed by all. May she rest in peace.
