modern family christmas

the jones family is on an every-other-year christmas schedule.
we were together last year, 
so technically this is not our year to be together...
but we threw technicalities out the bah-hum-bug window and found a way
to be together anyway...

  today we celebrated a jones family chritmas
via video chat! {36}

michael's parents opened their christmas gift from all of us 
which included an announcement for the whole family 
from jennifer & charles!

we're already looking forward to next christmas 
when we'll be together again 
with a new little 
bundle of joy boy! {37}.

Thanks guys for thinking of such a great way to share our big news with the whole family. It was such a treat to be able to see/talk with everyone all at once. I still don't like being all the way over here by ourselves on Christmas, but the video chat made it all so much easier. Love you!
