Doctor Christmas 2006

Christmas is always a fabulous time of year. Now that we have kids, there is even more laughter and excitement surrounding the holiday. Most of all, it's a time for family gatherings. Christmas at the Odgen house is always very interesting...full of paper wad fights and the occasional prank gift that is most often an animal carcass. Good times had by all!

Herman was gifted with his first print by Native American artist Matthew Bearden.

And Shara is giving loving to Dakota and Elle's Christmas gift...Buddy.

Christmas 2006

This year, we hosted my mom's side of the family in our home. It's always a relatively small gathering but warm and comfortable as can be. I'm already looking forward to next year.

Kid's Christmas Surprise

Jason hadn't stopped talking about getting a new dog ever since my mom and dad adopted Emmit. I'd been resistent because I liked not having the extra responsibility. Yes, I was being selfish. But he found a boxer breeder and made me go look. We took the kids (huge mistake). We didn't buy one then but Jason went back for a small male with big feet and hid him in the garage until night time. After we came home from opening presents with the Doctor family, there he was! Our little Buddy.

9th Annual Doctor Family Christmas Party 2006

Every year we host a Christmas party for ourselves and our friends and every year it's a ton of fun. 2006 brought a few new guests along and several of the regular were in attendance. It's always an unforgetable reunion and celebration.
