Christmas Morning in McMurdo

Every year we make our Christmas Tree out of lights on the wall and put the Christmas cards we get in the mail inside.  It seems like we get less cards mailed to us each year, but we appreciate the ones we do get.

We do have this little tree that we put our gifts around each year.

We also had our stockings hung, but they aren't overflowing like they used to be when we were kids.

All the booty before we started opening things.

Kelly got his usual "New Zealand Auto Car" magazine, which is always one of his favorites.

Dave got a large Whittiker's chocolate bar and Reeses Pieces.

Kelly got a merino wool bomber hat to keep his head warm at the airfield...

...and it looks good on him too!!!

Dave got a Bend Beer shirt with a list of the breweries on the back.

What's in here???

A beautiful Bugatchi dress shirt.

Kelly got a new Cubs camping hat...

...and....

...a High Desert Crossfit sweatshirt.

Dave got a Penguin pullover.

Dave with all his gifts.

We spent Christmas day & night and the following day & night watching lots of movies, relaxing and transitioning to the night shift.  We'll now be working 6 pm to 6 am through the rest of the season.
