Christmas 2004 In Coeur d'Alene Idaho

In December 2004 Melissa, Shonn and I spent Christmas in Idaho with Melissa's Family.  This was Shonn's first Christmas and a number of photos were taken.  The pictures presented here are re-sized for the web, and if you would like physical prints, ask and we can send you the full size pics.
