Christmas 2009

(please note that I've edited several times due to annoyance with formatting)

Good times had by all...  


Part 1: Family

(Sung to the tune of 12 Days of Christmas, with flexible creative license and numeration)

3 Ornery Nephews, 2 much eating, 1 Pretty Niece...

...and the family in front of the tree.

 Part II: The Wii
Everyone participated...yes... everyone (except Luke and Eyla)

mom bowling
Josh and Austin Golfing

and my dad and my Miis golfing.

Part III: Floor Hockey
A yearly tradition (for at least the last few years) has been to drive to Edgerton, OH to play floor hockey with the Stiver family and friends.

Two hours of great exercise and fun. Unfortunately, I missed the 'post-game festivities.'
(i hoped to put a video of the festivities from last year, but, alas, couldn't... yet)

anyway... merry christmas from NW Ohio

Snowmen and Candycanes...

I think I just set a record for earliest gift-wrapping finish.

I've literally wrapped presents an hour before they are ripped open. Not this year.

Hoping to drive the Vue to Ohio.
Hoping the weather cooperates.
Hoping = praying.
I invite everyone to "hope" with me.

Merry Christmas

Andrew Peterson says it well...

"Sing out with joy for the brave little Boy,
Who was God, but He made Himself nothing.
Well, He gave up His pride,
and He came here to die like a man"

My Christmas gift to you...listen ... and be reminded and blessed of what we have to celebrate

Love it...
I had it twice this week,
once in Wichita, once in Lawrence.

Most people think it's just "raw fish."

I used to think the same thing.
But then I actually tried it, liked it, and decided that it's much better than I thought. 
So... the moral, my friends is, "Try it before you knock it."

My friends have fallen in love with this place in Lawrence...
Besides the sushi, I loved hangin' with this little lady, her mommy and daddy, and her nonnie. Notice the "I Love Sushi" bib that Uncle Jim bought her.
