Top 10 Christmas List (in picture and video)

Made the trip to beautiful Iowa again this year (special thanks to Bethany for the photo below).

Here are 10 things I observed this Christmas:

10. They still make a game for the entire family. (thanks, Miss Park!)

9. A four-wheel drive truck is great for bad weather but a bit cramped for a 1200 mile round trip.

8. It's more fun if you fall off at the bottom.

7. They grow up way too fast!

6. Grandma gets the most attention of anyone.
5. Some kids are just easy to buy for.

4. The odds of having nine grandchildren and none of them being boys is less than 1 in 500.

3. Angels are cuter when you're related to them.
2. Clothes become acceptable gifts at around age 10 (at least for girls)
1. The only thing better than a simple squeal of delight from someone you love... four of them!

Thanks for sharing your pictures. I just love seeing them. I love the "I don't know" after each present. That is so adorable...they were just grateful to open something and be surprised.

The McQueary's have 21 grandkids and until Rowan there was only 4 grandsons. Rowan was the first boy grandchild in 13 years. You can imagine our surprise to have a boy! McQueary's just don't have boys!

Jourdyn received lots of clothes (10 yrs) and she loved it! You're right it's the first year it's acceptable!

I love the I don't know's! Just absolutely great!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Hey there, Waals! Glad to hear you enjoyed your trip (and the game...when I read about it Tracy came to my mind immediately)! :-)

Thanks for sharing your family with us this year in a very special way. You have taught me many things about God, faith, love & life!

May 2008 be a wonderful year for the Waal family!
