Christmas 2008

Days 3, 4, 5 have brought much adventure. Starting at the bottom Scott and Ethan went to the Colorado Avalanche game and brought back a hockey helmet for Evan and Ethan. Meanwhile Evan received a rudolph red nose and Emma was posing with her straigtened hair.

Then Christmas Day came and the kids had great fun opening lots of presents. Elmo seemed to be theme for Evan of which Elmo Live Guitar now only plays in Spanish. Ethan got a Storm Trooper costume (seen below) and Emma got a Nintendo DS.

We ended Christmas Day sledding outside our house and had tons of fun. Eli hung out in the house with his Mana and Papa.

Merry Christmas to all!

Childress Family Christmas Vacation - Day 1 & 2

This year the Childress Family, Murray Family, Price Family and King Family ventured to Breckenridge, Colorado for Christmas. After adjusting to the altitude by drinking lots of water, we have now begun our days of fun, sledding in the front yard and skiing the slopes of Breck (see Ethans video below). Stay tuned for more updates....
