Christmas 2011

Skype is wonderful technology!  It allowed us to ‘be with’ our families on Christmas Eve at Joanne’s house in the Foothills and on Christmas Day here at Lake Mittry.  We got to visit with and see the kids and grandkids open their Christmas gifts.

We’re missing Donna, too. 026Eric, Ryan, Jessica and Cheri on Christmas Eve as Ryan opens a gift card. 007Josh with Julianna, Alison and Isaac in their ‘bear’ hats watching Lexi open her gift. We’re missing Sarah in this photo.

034We had a lovely evening after Church services at Joanne’s. The family’s traditional Oyster Stew was replaced with Nachos this year!  And after a lively game of Hand and Foot Express we enjoyed Christmas Brownies with ice cream.

The Boomer Christmas Day at Lake Mittry started off with Pop Overs at Ron & Sharon’s followed by Pegs and Jokers with the Meads, Knapps and Moores. It’s been a lively several day competition with the girls ahead ….. at this point. Our Christmas potluck dinner was delicious!  Here to enjoy the feast were: in front; Frank & Gretchen, Margie, Glenda and Wendy. In back; Ron, Chuck & Jan, Kay, our neighbor Ed, Tom, Sharon, Dick, Russ, Tom, Ina & Pat, Terry, Jane, Darlene and Don. Vince is missing in the photo. Don & Glenda’s solar step-ladder Christmas tree, at right, looks much more like a ladder during the day but is a lovely lighted Christmas Tree by night! Merry Christmas & Happy New Year everyone!050
