our traditional picture in front of the tree

Jim wanted a picture with Dave, this is what we got?

then this

this was uncle Tims present

and a few short hours later can you guess whose gift was his favorite. (No worries it's a pellet gun)

then it starts to get a little silly.
still celebrating this time with Davids family
G arranged special to eat next to Ryan

this is like a Smart Wool ad- opening
oh yeah try 'em on "like walking on sunshine"

don't you love when your kids are excited to get the same toys you got as a kid?
ending with this ridiculously addictive game (for crazy people) A Merry Christmas all around!!

Disney Christmas

Here is the rest of Disney. We had a great trip our Friends the Mattsons flew in the same day but we stayed in different hotels. We met up on several occasions as you will see. Then on Thursday we were both lucky to have family join us, Es and little A with us and Jackie with them. We were a fun party of 14 traveling around the Magic Kingdom. So that explains all the people in our vacation pic's.
here is where it began at one of our favorite restaurants trails end
that night at the camp ground Chip and Dale had a campfire and sing along which was super fun

here we are at Aslans stone table, cool, (Narnia)

gray was really excited about this picture, I can't believe we stand in line to take a picture with cars. Well I guess that's what we do at car shows hua, so I guess its ok.

that night the Mattsons joined us Hooray!
no Gray didn't ride in a wheelchair, sadly it was me. Yep due to my lousy hip I did have to use a wheelchair, junk.

yummy dinner at Hollywood and Vine
