Christmas Photos 2008

Christmas 2008


As per our longstanding tradition, my family gathered Christmas Eve at my mother’s home in Onawa, IA. This was the first year, however, at Mom’s new home. We feasted on oyster stew (made by Mom) and chili (made by Dennis and Jody), and also did our annual gift exchange. Despite those who couldn’t be with us this year, we’re still blessed to have the large family we do. There’s more than enough love to go around.

Videos and Photo Slideshows

An eclectic collection of slideshows and videos I either put together myself … or news reports and/or other stories involving my family, my work, or where one of us was interviewed.

You may either view the stand-alone videos directly on this page by clicking the photos, or click on the hyperlink below any photo to visit the individual page where you’ll still find the video along with any accompanying story or summary.

P.S. There’s still more to come. It just takes time to get them here.
