Christmas 2006!

We're back home from our Christmas celebrations with family and friends. What a wonderful weekend! It was so fun to get to see the Skarbeks even though it was for such a short time. Dan beat us to Houston even though he had a gig the night before. I couldn't believe it! Janet has an awful sciatica nerve problem and was in a lot of pain. She was a trouper though and seemed to have a great time anyway. Ron was super dad and husband taking care of all the Christmas shopping and meals for the family. Brian and I opened lots of awesome gifts, but I think Brian's favorite was the super-powerful leaf blower! He can't wait for next fall now that he's prepared! We enjoyed good food and good times in Houston! Thanks for everything guys!

We headed to Rockwall on Sunday and got there just in time to make it to the candlelight Christmas Eve service at the Methodist Church in Rockwall. It was a pretty service and we got to visit the church for the first time. Kelsey and I opened our customary Christmas Eve pajamas and Dad read the Christmas story complete with swaddling clothes and all! We opened presents the next morning, which took a long time! Mom was worried we didn't have enough gifts since she hadn't been able to do much shopping, but she was wrong! We had more then enough and everyone was really excited about their loot! HaHa! The Skarbeks sent a gift with Brian and I for the six of us to open together. They gave us personalized yellow slickers for all our boating adventures! It was the most thoughtful and entertaining gift! Everyone looked so cute!

The family in our slickers!

Sorry we're so blurry and dark! I'm hoping Mom has a better picture of all of us.

The McCords and Mike Reid came over for Christmas dinner that afternoon and stayed to play a few games of Mexican Train. Somewhere in there the Cowboys lost an ugly, ugly game to the Eagles, but we tried not to dwell on that one! Later we played Apples to Apples and Kelsey beat the heck out of all of us! But Nana was happy to learn the game, and boy, does she love to play games! We had to go home today and resume normal life....but I have awesome memories from a fabulous Christmas 2006!
