This is Phil with the founding members of the Phil Kaufman fan club.
President: Morgan Poxleitner. Vice-President: Sam Kaufman.
Another photo of the PK Fan Club.We had the traditional dinner of chicken--ahem, turkey--noodle soup. (No eggs this time...or at least, I didn't get one). It was delicious with homemade noodles. Andie at a whole bowl. Sam ate a whole bowl. Their parents ate several.
Then, the games began. The main event is a wild-crazy-no-holds-barred gift exchange with stealing, wheeling and dealing of a variety of exchange gifts. Each person draws a card and when their card is called, they can either open a gift from the pile or steal someone else's gift.
Some people got downright protective of their gifts, even having their toddler lick their gifts to lay claim to them. (Not that it prevented my--I mean, that unnamed person's--gift from being stolen). Andie loved the excitement...and loved everyone watching her when she attempted standing without any help. She's a ham already.
And, this last picture is actually from Kaufman-palooza (AKA Christmas morning), with Sam hugging with his Uncle Steve with all the love of a two-year-old. It's a lot of hug to handle, but particularly sweet. I didn't want my Christmas posts to end without including it.
We had a great Christmas season and are looking forward to next year!
