Pre-Christmas Party
Golden, Colorado: 2000

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 he took some test pictures.

East Patchogue, New York
Christmas, 2000

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.
