Christmas Day 2007

At Grandma and Grandpa's house, all the grandkids woke us up at about 7 am, eager to go upstairs to see what Santa might have left. They were under strict instructions to not go upstairs to peek until everyone was up and ready. Pictured below is Calvin, Oliver, and Hailey. The anticipation is killing them, as they wait for all the parents to get their cameras, camcorders, and restroom breaks.

Deb is holding Aly back and she's so excited, she can hardly wait.
Here's (part of ) where Santa deposited Debbie's family's surprises.

Christopher is really excited about getting a brand new Wii game system from good old Santa Claus.

Here we are on a rather empty plane. We each could have had a row to ourselves.
Landing in Denver in the afternoon, it was our first glimpse of snow for the season.

Here's a shot of DIA just before sunset. It's a very recognizable airport, isn't it? Lindsey's taking a picture of me as I take this picture of her in the foreground.
Looks like it's going to be a white Christmas at Grandma and Grandpa's house!
