Christmas Day!

Christmas 2007 is here...

Greg and I had a great time down in Salem and in McMinnville for our first Christmas as a married couple! Here are some pictures from our trip.

I don't think it will take too long to find out who the star of the show was...

Karis in her Christmas Dress...


Me and my big sis...


Such a good lookin' group...


Karis just loves this little doggy...it always gets a little giggle out of her that just makes you melt...


Grandpa and Karis playing and giggling...


Such a cutie...


Karis found a present and starts to get the idea of opening all her presents...


Karis playing with her Uncle Ryan...


This is something that dad use to do with us kids. He would swing us back and forth. As you can see Karis enjoyed it just as much as we did...


Karis decided to take a reading break in the middle of all the present opening extravaganza...


Here is a shot of Karis heading towards my parents gift from Greg and I. We got this great frame from Costco that holds 30 pictures. We picked out 30 of our favorite wedding photos done by Airika and Gerald Pope (Check out their blog located to the right!). They have such a fun photo journalistic style that looking at the picture frame with all the photos is like reading a story. We got a few teary eyes out of my parents when they opened it they loved it so much...


Karis got her first Cabbage Patch Kid from Uncle Ryan and Aunt Amanda...


Karis discovered that there was a bear stuck in the tree and decided to try and rescue it...


After a long morning of present opening, Karis started getting pretty weary...


Overall, we had a blast this Christmas! It sure was fun, and different for our family to have a "little one" around for Christmas. Mabe there will be another one around next year (Ryan and Amanda...you guys are next!) :) Just kidding, no pressure!

Vance and Alicia, thanks again for letting us stay at your wonderful home! We had a great time!
