Merry Christmas Eve!

It's finally here! The best holiday of the year (in my opinion)! My favorite Christmas pasttime is watching the video of my dad's last 2 Christmases. They are funny, and I like to remember how my family once was. Even my great grandma is in the videos. My grandpa is healthy, and my grandma does a high school cheer complete with hand/arm motions. My family sings carols (well, we tried anyway) and is at their best in the videos. The sad part? The tape is in Indiana, where I'm not. I really need to make copies so that I can reminesce out here in California.
What kind of favorite Christmas memories/pasttimes do you people have?

Kristi, I am sad because Christmas will not be the same without you and Randy here. That stinks. I think my favorite Christmas memory would be the last Christmas with Dad. You never forget it. Making the home videos and getting to watch them every year was probably the best thing we ever did. I am actually getting ready to have the videos transferred over to DVD so I will make sure to get a copy made for you. I love you! You and Randy both have a wonderful Christmas!! Miss you both! (now i have to deal with our psycho relative alone without you :( Merry Christmas!!

You are lucky to only have 1 psycho relative. We have a few. My thing I remember most is my dad reading the story of Jesus birth before we could open any presents. Jared does it now.

Martha, you may have some crazy relatives, but Kristi and Keri's psycho relavtive outdoes all yours combined. She is nuts.

My favorite Chirstmas memory is, when I was 7, sneaking outside while everyone was opening gifts to smoke a cigar. That was a good year. I think I might do it this year too, but it is hard to sneak away when there are only two of us, I think Kristi might notice.

I'd like to meet her. Or maybe just watch her at a distance, but not in a creepy way.
