Our Christmas


Merry Christmas! We had quite the eventful few days!

We alternate each year who we spend Christmas with -- this year Christmas Eve was with the Lowes, and Christmas day was with the Wayments. 

Christmas Eve, we went to my mom's house for our annual Christmas breakfast -- so delicious as always!
Kailee, JD, and Kenna

Rowan, Sarah, Ama, my dad, and Trent

Gray got Angry Bird gummies in his stocking -- he was beyond excited! He STILL carries the box around with him! He's quite the Angry Birds fan :)

Nani with the babies -- Holland and Thatcher (check out that crazy hair! hehe)

Look at that sweet little girl! Love those big baby blues!

JD "won" Christmas this year by giving us all the most memorable gifts of all time.  Nude pictures of himself with strategically placed bows, presents, etc covering the naughty bits.  This was my mom's reaction when she saw hers.  She was CRYING, she was laughing so hard! I personally STILL wish I could wash my eyeballs! It was hilarious! 

Thatcher playing with his new squeaky ball

Row and Gray playing with some of the new loot

Holland got her first Madame Alexander doll!

Rowan got the cutest ice cream set! He was quite happy, and was very busy serving everyone their own ice cream cones.

Gray got this awesome dragon from Nani and Pop.  He loves it.

T's favorite present -- a blue raspberry teether -- he loves this thing!

My mom made all the grandkids stockings! So cute!

Rowan and Kailee with their stockings

Gray with his

And little miss Holland with hers (and Sarah, too)

T also got this fun dinosaur ball popper -- so entertaining!

Gray loves it, too

So does Henry! (my mom's dog) -- he was so funny, just sitting there staring at it forever!

Me and my festive hubby :)

T getting adventurous on the stairs

My sweet baby in his cutest sweater outfit, when I got around to dressing him.  Never did get around to doing his hair....
 We went home for naps, (lovely), then we went to Ama's house for our annual homemade soups dinner.  I guess I didn't manage to get any pictures there! (anyone have any they wanna shoot my way?!)


On Christmas day, we went to Steve's parents' house. The boys opened their presents, and we had another delicious breakfast!

Gray got this giant monkey from Gram and Grampa -- so fun!

The boys unwrapping presents

T had a great time with the paper :) 

Gray had a great time spreading his loot all across the floor

After playing with all the new toys for a bit, we were able to go to sacrament meeting at Steve's parents' ward.  It was so nice to be able to go to church on Sunday and have some time dedicated to thinking of the Savior.
Steve and Thatcher in their Christmas Sunday best! Aren't they cute?!
Cute Grayson in his Christmas best.  Love this pic :) 

After church, we came back to the Wayments' house and relaxed for a little bit.  Gray snuggled up with his daddy and played with his new Lightning McQueen toy that plays a game on his daddy's iPad.  It was sweet -- had to snap a pic.


We went over to Steve's aunt's house later in the afternoon for fun and food.  Didn't get pics there, either.  I guess I was too busy :)  After that, we went over to Steve's parents' house again to open our presents from Scott and Jeanne (great stuff -- thanks!)  Then we headed over to Steve's cousin Ryan's house for a bit.

We had a great holiday! I'm so glad we live so close to all our family and get to see them so often! We love you all! Thanks for everything!

Looks like such a good Christmas. I also really like the Santa Claus Day idea. :) By the way, your kids are darling! I can't believe how much Thatcher looks like you.
