What I remember about Christmas 2008:

1. get the family together at your own risk!!! 2. calling mom to tell her I was getting to come EARLY! 3. the Lord provision (by means of a rainy California) in allowing me to travel with my sexy husband AND arrive two days earlier in K.C. 4. mom’s cooking never tasted so good… YUM!!!! 5. and then there was, you guessed it… MORE food… 6. oh and DESSERT too (cherry pie anyone?) 7. scrabble tournaments 8. wrapping Christmas presents in Wedding gift bags LOL 9. driving through a blizzard 10. Matt and mom’s Chinese fire drill in the blizzard 11. airsoft wars and wounds 12. dad finally got the most presents 13. arctic mornings spent walking with mom followed by Quicktrip runs… just like the good old days 14. Matt leading us through the Christmas devotional 15. the sound of Megan’s phone beeping every two seconds 16. hanging out with old friends 17. a HUGE nighttime thunderstorm, good for cuddling 18. my winter coat expeditions 19. three boys playing video games in their matching boxers… ooh la la… 20. dad getting an extremely contagious, nasty, flu-like, but worse, virus 21. finding out AGAIN that I am the best Clue player ever… 22.
