Our annual trip to the Midwest for Christmas in Paragould. Mom opening a present.
Wade cleaning up and making sure all the wrapping paper gets thrown away.
Our twin Santa Clauses. With that little bit of gray, Wade is looking an awful lot like Earl.
Wade and Dawn posing with their presents.
Kimberly opening her special hand-drawn saw blade.
Earl examining the videos that Craig and Ordi sent along with the DVD/VCR.
Dawn saying, "I don't know what this is, but I'm going to open it anyway."
A little visitor outside the door.
Earl likes to get his knife out to open presents. (Actually, I think he just likes to get his knife out.)
Mom and Dawn both got lotions and potions.
Don't look at me like that!
Kimberly and Wade opening some presents.
Here's Mom with a pencil holder that is framed by four of Mark's graduation pictures.
Kimberly likes Earl's knife as well.
I think I'll read the Paragould newspaper. That ought to take about five minutes.
Mom playing solitaire on the computer.
We decided to try to get a few shots around town this year. If your name is Molly and you are going to open a Mexican restaurant, what better name than "TaMolly's"?
Here's Couch's Bar-B-Que out on Route 49.
This is Wade in front of the Paragourld Community Center. It has a basketball court and a couple of pools, but most importantly, it has racquetball courts, so Wade and Kimberly can get some exercise without having to drive all the way to Jonesboro.
Here's the shady spot in town: the "Special Moments" boutique.
This is a shot of Earl and Joyce's house and barn from the turnin on the road.
Another little visitor in the yard. Not unexpected, what with Earl having constructed 23,486 birdhouses in his career.
Don't let the smile fool you. Kimberly is actually thinking, "Stinking dial-up network! This is taking way to long just to do online check-in for the airport."
Kimberly cooking us up a nice pot of spaghetti. Doesn't she look so natural in this environment?
