Christmas: Pictures

We made it back safe and sound from our Christmas trip to Duluth. The whole Christmas holiday was great.

I tried to limit the number of likely-interesting-only-to-my-family pictures compared to previous years, but the selection is still longer then I originally intended.

Linzy and I exchange only price-limited stockings, but it still ends up to be quite the pile of gifts (Hers on the left, mine on the right).

Sometime during the year Pippen apparently learned to open her own packages versus just ripping up the paper from already opened packages.. She would sniff out the ones that smelled like dog treats and toys, carry them away and rip them open. It was pretty amusing.

John and Dad playing (what else?) Guitar Hero.
