pics from family christmas 2008

A little later than I'd intended, but I finally got a chance to go through my Christmas Eve pics. Traditionally, the entire family gathers and opens presents after dinner. Nic had to work, so I drove down solo.

Since my job, as it has been since childhood, is to distribute presents as my alter-ego of "Relph the Elph," I passed my camera around to my nieces, who took most of the 350 pics. A sample of about 30 or so are behind the cut.


The Rockwellian calm before the carnage.
 
Brooke, my youngest niece.
 
My sister Beth.
 
Autumn and Bree.
 
Maleah.
 
Bro-in-law Bill.
 
Cass.
 
My new Christmas hat,
a gift from my nieces.
Bridget.
 
Bro-in-law Jason.
 
Bree.
 
Autumn liked her shoes.
 
Cass, excited with her new books.
 
I put Brooke in charge of throwing away the bows. To be efficient, she started taking them off the presents as they were delivered to their recipients.
 
Hailley.
 
Brooke advises Dad
on Mr. Potato Head.
Hailley made an apron
for my sister Robin.
Dad's a librarian.
 
My sister Carin.
 
Morgan's jacket.
 
Bridget.
 
Dad's new hat has headlights.
 
Bree got a new hat too.
 
Carin likes her jacket and scarf.
 
All nine of my nieces. This was the least squirmy shot.
 
Bro-in-law Nate intensely
studies his new cookbook.
Bethie.
 
Hailley and Autumn.
 
Jordy helps me with a puzzle.
 
Robin, singing and/or surprised.
 
Mom advises Brooke
on care of dollies.
Mom.
 
My sisters.
 
Hailley made me this.

Dude. I'm floundering in a sea of estrogen.

good looking family, indeed!

we do "bows in the hair" at my family celebrations.... someone starts the chant, and by the end of the present ripping frenzy we're all bedecked. good times with crazy people.
