Merry Christmas everyone from our home to yours. We hope that you had a wonderful Christmas full of family to share it with. We enjoyed a morning of opening presents with the kids and a big breakfast of bacon, sausage, eggs, hash browns and pancakes. Then spent the afternoon playing with new toys. In the late afternoon we drove to Payette to my mom's house for a nice dinner and we exchanged a few more presents. The kids enjoyed playing with their cousins and a dip in the hot tub. It was a lovely Christmas day...

Christmas Eve at Grandma Reva's

Christmas Eve we went to Mike's mom's house to do our homemade gift exchange, eat yummy food and enjoy each others company. It was a nice evening and I got a few good photos to share with you.

Parma Christmas Party

Last night we went to Parma for a fun Christmas party that my sister-in-law Kristey put on at her church. There was dancing, games, door prizes, snacks, a movie and crafts for the kids and Santa. It was a fun filled evening. Thank you, Kristey and helpers.

My camera didn't take very good photos. :(

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

My elves put up our Christmas tree on Friday evening after a long week of bugging me as to when we would put it up. They had fun looking at all the ornaments and deciding which ones to put on the tree. The next morning we woke up to a couple of inches of snow on the ground. After searching for all their snow clothes they headed out to play in the fluffy white stuff. My craftiest elves helped me wrap a few presents and put them under the tree. I addressed Christmas cards while they went to a birthday party. Then in the evening we made Ninjabread men and Ninjasugar men to decorate as we watched Christmas Vacation.
