Christmas Tour 2008

Each year we have multiple Christmas celebrations with family and friends, and this year was no exception. The 2008 Christmas Tour included 5 different celebrations - all with lots of visiting, good food, and tons of fun!

Christmas Celebration #1 - 12.20.08 - 2nd Annual Neighbor Christmas Gift Exchange
For the second year in a row, we got together with our neighbors and had a small gift exchange. This year we upped the price limit to $5 and even drew names. After spending 30+ hours without electricity, we decided to finally have our get together.....and 30 minutes into our party, the electricity went out again. So, we spent the majority of the evening, including gift opening, using candles and flashlights yet again. Please excuse the quality of these photos....they were taken in the dark by candlelight.

L to R: Jacob, Karlyn, Bret, Craig, Jenna, Landrie

That's hard to believe those pix are by candlelight. Next time, let's try not to cover up the OU sweatshirt. I've noticed Jacob wearing glasses in the recent pix. He looks good, and I imagine he can see better, too.
