A Very Merry Christmas 2014

It has been a celebration the past two days.  Two church services, eating out, a reception, Christmas dinner, packages and, tonight, a crash.

We were planning on heading west tomorrow but there is a winter storm warning for the Colby/western Kansas area so we decided to put the trip off one day.  Sure don’t want to spend a night out there because the roads close—been there, done that.

I don’t take as many pictures as I used to on Christmas.  I should document gifts, though.  Today was an example of a reason to do that.  We were trying to decide what year we gave each family a KitchenAid mixer.  I went back to the Christmas pictures and saw a package about the right size in 2001—didn’t see the mixer though.  It was fun to see those little ones opening the baby toys.

As to the pictures, I almost never delete any attempts at family pictures.  They age well.  Sometimes the most poised ones are the least interesting in ten years.  Here is an example of multiple attempts at a family picture today

And, here is the final one that will go in the albums, but won’t Evan love the second from the left in ten years?

More to come—Christmas isn’t over yet!  We see on Instagram there is an adorable little furry animal in Colorado!
