Photos From The Family Christmas (2011)

Matthew was all about Santa.

Santa and Mrs. Clause read the children a book.  Something about trying to outsource labor and replace the elves.   They tried dragons, they tried polar bears and other workers but it just didn’t work out.

Not real sure what the moral of the story was.

We all sang Jingle Bells with Santa, then Matthew wanted to sing a song…

Of course his favorite Christmas song was “Bad Boys, Bad Boys, whatcah gonna do”

Everyone was there except for my slacker Canadian cousins 🙂

Peyton and Matthew learning about Santa’s magical keys.

And of course gifts.

All of the photos can be found here.

Thompson Clan Christmas 2006

As usual, food was plentiful and nobody went hungry.

Santa made his appearance, (later than planned) but that was OK. I don’t care who you are, you’re never to old for Santa 😉

Kris won the Euchre tournament, and also our one game of Texas Holdem. However, Maggie came in second, and in the money 😉 defeating her brother, mother and father in the process.

Lots of fun was had. Photos are posted in the Dishers Gallery on Google [Click Here]

Maybe next year we can get the whole clan together again.

Kudos to Claudine for all the baking, Angie the ham was delicious and so where the hankypanks.
