Christmas 2010

Merry Christmas from the Orton household! I hope everybody had a magical Christmas season. We sure did! Christmas started out with decorating - not always my favorite part - but this year it was different. Last summer Gary's good friend David Lake passed away. Gary and David we avid hunting buddies and loved spending time together. After David passed away, his wife Karen, wanted Gary to have something of David's. Little did I know that this is what she had in mind:

Isn't it lovely? Let's just say we got a lot of weird looks from our neighbors. David used to put this lovely lawn decoration in his front yard and send a picture of it to us as a Christmas card - we were the only people that Karen would allow him to send the picture to. So this year, in honor of David, we displayed this in our yard and sent a picture of it to Karen in California. I hope she enjoyed it! Whether or not this display will be used again next year is still up for debate.

Christmas morning was awesome - all of us got spoiled - enough that I lost my camera in all of the wrapping paper and therefore was not able to take as many pictures as I wanted.

Checkin out Santa's loot.

We really did have a wonderful Christmas this year full of family and friends.
