Family and friends means games to me. Football, Disc golf, bocce ball, pinball, cards, board games, and more. It means getting together to eat, drink, and be merry as a family, but mostly to play games… 🙂 Kristine’s Brother Bill and his family were here, along with Lorraine, Kristine’s mom, Nick, Emily, Dane, KC, Kristine, and I. 11 of us, just right for our kitchen table. On Christmas Eve Nick cooked his world famous lasangna, while Kristine made fresh bread. After dinner we gathered around the tree for opening one gift. Everyone was pretty fired up.
We played a pinball tournament, and headed to bed at 11pm. Christmas morning started late as we waited for Nick and Emily to arrive and have breakfast. Kristine made a feast, of course. We opened presents and I got another Disc Golf basket, sweet! i quickly set it up and we can now play 18 holes without repeating the same hole twice. KC isn’t sure what is going on, exactly, but hopes we are doing it again today, i am sure.
We didn’t paddle on Christmas, which is a Jackson first. Not sure why, really, but we are all missing it badly now! We’ll be on the water today again, with the Falls running, brave wave, the hole, sieve city, etc.. to make for a great day!
Merry Christmas, 2009!
