More Random Christmas Pictures

Our computer is unplugged and soon to be picked up for repairs, so I've hooked everything up to my laptop computer - and WOW what a difference a new computer makes. I'd forgotten what FAST really was like. I downloaded these pics in seconds and every thing pops up immediately. Is that really how computers are supposed to work? I got a cordless mouse for it too, and it's soooo nice. Wow - I could get spoiled to this! I might even do more blogs if it's this easy to do it! Anyway - here are a few of my pictures from Christmas that aren't on the girls blogs.
Daniel getting a little help from Dad to open one of his presents. Curtis is anxiously waiting!

And here is one of Caden's first presents. I think the hand is more appealing right now!

This is the "Dad gift" for Chad and Elizabeth. It's a painting customized with their names carved on the tree. I knew they'd enjoy the deer too.

This was Pat and Deborah's "Dad gift" and theirs was a couple of bears snoozing on a limb with their names carved on the tree. Jonathan and Holly's picture was a beach with a hammock and beach stuff around and their names written in the sand. Sorry no pictures of that one.

Finally, a picture a took a few minutes ago out our back door. It's been single digit temps here for several days now. The thermometer on the beam says thirty, but it's in the sun. It's only 13 outside. It didn't take'em long to get a hockey game going. I heard the "thwack" of the puck being hit before I knew they were out there. There is no temperature break forecast for the next ten days. I guess is really is winter. Hmmm - a nice vacation to a warm climate sounds really good right now. I know! How about a cruise to the Panama Canal? Like in two weeks! I knew it was a good idea!

Great pictures! That hockey on the pond thing is really cool. The boys would have loved to watch that.

I'm glad you got a picture of me opening the painting from you. I don't have one. I think I only took 2 or 3 pictures of the adults opening gifts. I must have been tired of taking pictures by that point. Guess that's what happens when you have 4 kids!
