Merry Christmas 2013 and a photobomb

Posted By on December 25, 2013


What a wonderful time we had over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day this year. We were happy to have Taylor, Katelyn and Drew home together with us for a couple days holidays (photo above) … and thankful some in the Corbett side of our family with us for dinner. It was a great to be together.


Besides gift exchanging and eating, playing board games became the highlight of our evenings. Settlers of Catan was the go to game this year and even after Brenda and I were in bed the kids were still up playing at 2AM. Even Taylor’s friend Mike came over to take over my color. It’s great to see them all enjoying time together.

One of the comical moments was when Katelyn accidently “photobombed” this shot …

    That’s hilarious! It looks like you had a great Christmas. Have a happy new year!

    • Happy New Year Carl. We had a great time and a good laugh at the photobombed pic! The time zipped by.

  • TDI Dennis

    You made my day with that photobomb shot. Very 2013ish! Happy New Year Rich and family. Do you still have your Volkswagen?

    • Thanks Dennis and a Happy New Year to you to as well. I no longer have “my” VW TDI, but I do occasionally drive and tinker with my daughter’s 2001 VW Jetta TDI. She told me that she is planning to buy a new car this summer and ask me to keep my ears open for someone interested in her “aging” Jetta. It will still be under 200,000 miles, in case there is someone reading this who might be looking for a starter TDI. I think she is planning to look at the Volkswagen Tiguan; she wants a small all-wheel drive SUV that might handle the weather in Minneapolis better than a Jetta. I think it makes sense.
