I had a wonderful time at home for Christmas. It was so nice to be able to spend more than just a weekend with my family.

After opening presents on Christmas morning, the family headed off to the Stephens County fairgrounds to volunteer and serve Christmas lunch. We did it last year for the first time and really enjoyed it. It was definitely more organized this year, which was nice. =)

That afternoon we opened a few more presents and then played Dirty Santa with the extended family. There's usually some drama involved with the stealing of the gifts, but I think everybody ended up with something they wanted. I got a pocket knife, it's awesome! The cousins played Apples to Apples for awhile (I LOVE that game), we even went through all of the red cards before we called it a night.

Friday brought a tainted cheeseburger at lunch (ick) and a trip to Norman in the afternoon. We almost got to see Stoney LaRue, who just happened to be playing at the Riverwind casino, but it was sold out. Danggone it. Shop, shop, shopped for LCD TVs, dinner at Ted's--drool--and then home. We finally found the right price on the right TV on Saturday at Sam's in Lawton. I got a 42" Philips, 1080p, 120Hz, full HD. It's awesome!!!

Stay tuned for our fantastic family portrait session on Saturday. Shine your boots and pack your ammo...
