V-A Christmas

Many years ago in a galaxy far far away two ladies became college roommates. Those two ladies were my mom and my Aunt Judy. Well....she isn't my aunt by blood; she is my aunt by love.

Aunt Judy and Uncle Joe bought a house right across the street from my parents in a brand new subdivision where we grew up.

As far back as I can remember we have celebrated Christmas with their family. We call it the V-A Christmas (insert last names there). We take turns each year whose house it is at. This year it was at the V household.

We missed Erin a great deal this year, but hopefully she will be around for future V-A-H? (when I get married) Christmases!

Amy and Me (and we actually only took one and we liked it!)

Uncle Joe videotaping while Amy passed out presents to everyone.

Doug opening his National Sarcasm Society sign from Adam and me (I laughed outloud when I found it!)

Dad being himself with the LED headlamp he got from the V family. He definitely loved it!

Amy with the pig planter from us. I also giggled when I found this one!

This was the first of many Christmas celebrations this season and it was one of many V-A Christmases to come. We had a great time eating, drinking, talking and laughing. We are pretty lucky to have this family by love.
