Christmas Holiday 2007

Our Christmas Holiday officially starts with a block caroling party on the circle at 3rd and Greenwood:
Fun neighbors impersonate Elvis and we post their rendition of Blue Christmas on You Tube.

Christmas brings Samantha's friends from far and wide.

Mark brings Daya from Minnesota and we lean with the leaning Christmas tree.
Traditions continue and pictures are taken ...

On Christmas Eve, Andy arrives home from Iraq!!! Yea!!!

Lots more pictures are taken and there are smiles all around.

Melissa and Samantha get slide whistles and yes ... we post their loose rendition of Prelude in G on You Tube:

More smiles all around.

We hope that you had a joyous Holiday Season and that 2008 brings peace and prosperity to you and yours.

Merry Christmas 2007
