Christmas Day at the Owen's

Here are a few pictures, out of many that were taken, of the Owen family Christmas celebration. Daisy Murdock joined us for the opening of the presents and for Christmas dinner. Cousin Ben was in Saipan with the PIU Christmas ministry team. After Kristin read the Christmas story from the Advent calendar we spent the morning opening presents and eating sweets. Christmas dinner was at two o'clock and then again at 4, 6 and 8. :) Christmas 2010 was another great one. And we get to stretch it out until mid-January when Missy and Cliff get here! (but back on low cholesterol diet on January 3rd - I want to make it through 2011).

Matt and Mike enjoyed their sparklers and the kids were pretty excited over every package.

The treats were tasty whether they were home baked or came in the packages

The turkey was perfect this year. We had about 3 days worth of food for Christmas dinner.
Joyce and Courage open a present.

One nice thing about living on Guam is that you can go swimming immediately before Christmas dinner. When we were in Texas we found a really good deal on a Christmas blow-up pool and it was a big hit with all 4 grandchildren
