Easter 2002

Easter 2002 was our last Easter in El Paso. The boys started off inspecting their baskets the easter2002Easter Bunny left for them during the night. Shortly afterwards, Susan and I hid some Easter Eggs for the kids to hunt. Later that night, we hosted a small party and invited some of my coworkers and friends.

Here is a photograph of Brian and Aaron talking to family on Easter. Click on the photograph to view the entire gallery.

Christmas 2001

Christmas 2001 was our last Christmas in the Army and at El Paso, TX. This was one of the few xmas2001Christmas Days we spent alone as a family. The distance between our home and our family made it difficult to be with anyone for the holidays. We attended the Christmas party for my office. On Christmas day, we had a quite day as a family. Brian and Aaron made out with a lot of neat toys. Susan got an imported leather jacket from Mexico! Mike got the two DVDs he had been wanting for a long time, Pearl Harbor and Saving Private Ryan. To the right is a photograph of Brian and Aaron on Santa’s lap at the local mall. Click on the photograph to view the entire gallery.

El Paso Scenic Mountain

In El Paso, there was a mountain that had a road that went around it. At the top of the mountain, scenicmountainthere was a lookout point. From this point one could see El Paso, New Mexico and Mexico. The view was spectacular at nighttime. The lights were very visible in El Paso because there were not many trees to disrupt the view. In the nighttime photographs, the large gap with no lights is the Rio Grande River. Here is a photograph of Susan, Brian and Aaron standing on the mountain. The photograph looks green because I was using the night view feature on a camcorder.
