Christmas Part 3

On December 23rd, the Clark family traditional Christmas party is held.

The Christmas party usually includes:
The little cousins gather around grandpa while he tells them 
the Christmas Story from the bible.
But this year was extra special because he introduced
 a new character in the beloved story; Mary's donkey named "Tiggy".
 The Children's nativity:

This year we had over 20 angels because we
  have so many cousins participating!
Visits from Elvin (Santa's right hand man).
 Dancing, singing, and opening presents.

Claire was a little timid meeting Elvin:
And cousin Harriett hated Elvin:
 Uncle Topher played the piano and the children danced 
through the night.  The night was the Clark family at its best!
