Christmas Campout in Vancouver, Washington

This is a tradition that was started in McKenna's family….
and the McKs along with Karen and Tyler and all 4 to their kids keep it going. 

Two Days before Christmas...They camp out in the family room all together, 
eating and playing games all day long. 

Here's what they sent me tonight….THANK YOU Karen and Tyler and McKenna and McKay for 
letting me a part of it some 800 miles away here in California 

My grand babies in their matching Christmas jammies….
Scarlett, Richie, Grant, and Leo.

 Intense game playing
 Oh, now that I look back on the pictures above, I guess McKenna 
and Karen have matching jammas too. 
How cute is that! And so do McKay and Tyler, apparently. 
(brings me back about 20 years)

 Looks like they cracked out the art projects out for the kids…..

As their games continue.

 Because I'm sure these little darlings, as good as they are, 
did not sit on this couch the entire day. 

 Just checked with Karen, and it's 9:30pm 
and this party is in it's 9th hour and still going strong. 

What memories they are making. 
Must be so nice living just 15 minutes apart. 
(As these grandkids get just a little older, and they will be talking about the
Christmas Campout all year long…I just know it!)

After Dennis heard about the Christmas campout in Washington, 
he wanted to start our own tradition. 
Sorry Grandpa, 
but you're going to be sleeping this one out by yourself. 

Merry Christmas!
