Christmas Party #3

I thought I had this post scheduled, but I realized it never showed up on the blog.  So now I’m trying to rewrite it from memory!  It may not be as detailed as it should have been, but at least it’s here…a month late! :/

Our last Christmas party was at Grandma & Grandpa P’s house with Keith’s parents, Keith’s brother’s family, and our family.  We got together at around 11 AM on Christmas Day for presents and a delicious Christmas dinner.

I’ll write about these pictures in the order they showed up in Live Writer because I am too lazy to rearrange them to chronological order ;)   

Keith and his brother exchange gag gifts each year based on what’s going on in each guy’s life.

Recently, Kevin was having some trouble with his computer, so Keith designed a “computer repair kit” for him.  It included items like:

a golf club (in case he needed to replace a driver)
ginseng (in case it was a computer memory issue)
a (pretend) gift certificate to Pella Windows (in case he needed to reinstall Windows)
Halls Defense cough drops (in case his computer had a virus)
a toy mouse (in case he needed a new mouse)
a small spiral notebook (to replace his computer with the newest trend: a tablet)
a hammer (in case all else fails…)
…there were a few more, but that’s what comes to mind right now

Kevin gave Keith a head razor and a can of Barbasol and told him it was time to “embrace the baldness”.  Then, he gave him a second package in case he was too chicken: the bald mans’ comb:
