This Christmas we had the pleasure of Kevin's return from a semester in Japan, and added to that Jocelyn and Steve visited from Maryland. We worshipped Jesus at church, sang carols at home, and visited Grandma Turner. Kevin presented his time in Japan as a "slide show" in two parts. We played games regularly, including Mexican Train, Sequence, hearts, and Blurt, with Kevin and Steve having a lot of success.

Jocelyn's photo collection records some of the above.

Kevin and Rico in chairs. Kevin has a small metal slinky over his eyes.
Evidently inspired by Rico, Kevin took a few minutes to rest, adding his unique style with a slinky.

New Year's Eve

We played the traditional game of Rail Baron, while the television showed "The Sound of Music".
