Christmas and New Years Party

On New Years Day we gathered as a family at our house.We had a wonderful day and were very happy that Josh and Becca could make it even though Andy wasn't able to be with us yet.
Here are pictures of our day together as a family. We are starting our own Penner gathering:)
