Christmas 2003

One of the joys of this Christmas was my 5-month-old nephew Tanner. I hadn't seen him since he was about a month old, and boy had he grown since.

The Christmas festivities started with the age-old tradition of going sledding. Luckily there was about an inch of snow to do it on. By the next day, it would be gone.

Everybody joined in on the fun!

Trevor stands out in the snowy lawn.

These big inflatible innertubes work great.

I don't know if it was the quality of snow or the many pounds I'd put on since the last time I was on an innertube, but they just didn't go quite as far as I would have liked.

After I tried the surfing-on-a-sled-thing and whiped out. Troy was determined to show me how it was done.

He fared no better than I.

Then Grandpa came out to join in on the fun.

Travis launches a surprise attack on Grandpa.

Back inside, the boys enjoyed riding the old horse. And when they rode the horse, they HAD to where the hat, the very same hat their daddy had worn riding the horse so many years ago.

When it wasn't their turn to ride the horse, they played with the train.

I tried to find hats for everyone, but they would have none of it.

They both did an excellent job of sharing the horse/hat combo.

Grandma and Trevor get ready for bed.

AAAAAAhhhh! Extreme Close-Up! Woooooooaaaaaaahhhhh!

Here I am with Tanner and Trevor.

The next day we got to see my dad's new (used) ultra-light. Here it is all collapsed for storage.

I and Troy helped him set it up. In the background, Trevor goes back to Grandma's bus to turn off some lights he had left on.

The ultra-light is pretty darn cool.

Troy helps Dad buckle up.

There he is folks.

Ready to soar with the birds. (Well, not quite. Unfortunately, he's not yet fully trained to fly it.)

I think we've found our new Top Gun.

Back inside, it was time to take the family pictures:
The joy of having a digital camera is you can take a bunch of pictures until you know you got it right. But when it's all said and done, sometimes you still can't figure out which is the best one.
