FRUITPORT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan couple with four children serving in the military are enjoying their family's first Christmas together in five years.

The Muskegon Chronicle reports that 4 of Richard and Leeann Yager's five children are in the military. Over the last few years, one or more of them have been overseas on deployment. But this year the two men and two women were all able to join their sister, parents and other relatives stateside for Christmas.

The Yagers' home in Fruitport Township was filled with pandemonium and fun this holiday as their children, their spouses and their kids filled their house.

Leeann Yager says she loves "all the chaos, all the fun" that come with being a family during the holidays.
