All I want for Christmas...

"All I want for Christmas is my one front tooth..."


Cheers! We had dinner at the Millside with our neighbors, Varen, Nancy, Cole and Jaden. The kids love it because it's a free-for-all in the back room by the pool table and video games.

Santa at the Mall...

We found the "real" Santa this year...not just one of his helpers! Who knew that he wore Birkenstock clogs!!

We went to Ridgedale mall on Saturday for the kids to see Santa and put in their requests. Madison went armed with gifts and a letter for him...Will didn't think it was necessary. We're not sure if Madison was trying to pay him off, or if Will was just too confident in his past year's behavior!

Winter Wonderland

Well, it finally hit us...the first big snow! Bill finally got a chance to get the snowblower out...he won't admit it, but I know he loves doing it! It was the perfect snowman-making, snowball-throwing, snow-fort-constructing, snowblower-plugging kind of stuff. I bet you Seattle people are just wishing you could move back here right away??!!

Christmas 2005 #1

"Will...Will...Will..." was Finn's favorite phrase for the night. Finn was sure entertained by the goofy pair, and vice versa!

Grandma, Grandpa, and the future, I mean Gophers.

The kids at the parade.

Cozy cousins

Will (and Bill's) newest toy. Somehow, whenever this Nerf dart game is played, it always ends with crying...go figure!

Taking Christmas Pictures

We all put our smiles on and attempted "Family Christmas Picture Night" at the Gallagher's house!
