Before Mike and I left for Long Island, his mom hosted a family get-together. Uncle Dale gave Mike and I our first digital camera. It wasn't long before Mike had it up and running....so he took some test pictures.

We alternate years for visiting my family in New York or visiting Mike's family for Christmas. 2000 was a New York year, and my Mom sent me these pictures from Christmas dinner at my parents' house.
