A semi-daily chronicle of my life as a musician, a family man, and a citizen of Oregon.

Christmas 2010

We had a great Christmas this year.  We started out with just our family in the morning opening presents and spending time together.  In terms of gifts there were a few highlights…

Dave got a new favorite hoodie and a hat that says “the boss”

Jen got some chocolates

Andrew got a much wanted Wah Wah pedal for his guitar:

And Brianna got a new iPod

Andrew got some skinny jeans for Christmas, but they were too skinny.

Later on in the day we went to Annie and Chris’ house and had a great time hanging out with their family.  They had a Kinect with a dance game.  The kids were hilarious with it.

Best Christmas Decorating Ever

We had just about as much fun decorating for Christmas this year as we ever have.  It was a ton of fun. 

We went with a live tree again this year, but a little bit smaller than we have in years past.

The kids were a lot of help, now that they’re entering teen ages they can be a lot more participative and the tree went up in no time.

Every year we take a family picture in front of the tree.  This year as we were getting one of the shots going I didn’t quite make it back to the tree in time for the timer and we got a pretty funny picture of my butt.

Luckily, we kept at it and got to a good shot.
