Merry Christmas to all !!

Candid funny photos from the Schramm Family Christmas....we all had to pull a hat from a bag and wear it until Rod took his hat off - - last one to pull their hat off has to plan the game for next year --- Good Luck, Matt - you're the one that has to top Rod's Hat Game!!
(yours truly is in most of these because she was taking them from arm's shot)

Grandma, Jodi and Heather (Love, Love, Love Heather's hat that she pulled!)

Ryan and Rod (The Game Honcho)

Sherry and Don - cool shot, love Don's hat!!

Aunt Sally - Giddy Up Cowgirl!

"Go Blue" dominated the hat colors - Aunt Jan and Sherry

Sherry, and bros - Adam and Jeffery

Sister Debi and Bro-in-Law Greg

"Bear Bryant" Doug and Sherry

Uncle Bud and Sherry...missed not seeing PJ this year

Pete got the PINK hat - and everyone thought his shirt was pink (blue and red pinstripes) so it
was hilarious when he pulled the pink ball cap from the bag!

How in the world did Teresa and Steve pull hats that seemed to be a perfect pair ?

Aunt Karen and Sherry

Me and my cuz, Julie - she is a fabulously fun and cool girl! But all my aunts, uncles, and cousins are !

Cookie Time in the hood

Last week we had our 2nd annual cookie exchange in "the hood"-- - - this one is of Traci, Lynn and Me - I was doing that photo thing where I hold the camera at arm's length and click ! Sort of like those photo stands they have where you're in a tiny booth ...
