Merry Christmas

It's been way too long since I had an update. December has come and gone so quickly. Katherine and Colin had three kids Christmas parties this month and Matt and I had on for my work. Plus add in Christmas shopping, wrapping presents, family time, baking, and everything else.. it is all kind of a blur.

I have been lucky and have been off with the kids for almost two weeks. Matt has had to work most of the time but has got to take days off here and there. My parents are in from Arizona for the holidays, then they will go back and spend so more time with grandma before they travel some more. I will do another post soon about all the fun things we did on our time off and to catch up on our lives around here.

Here are some pictures from Christmas Eve and Christmas. Christmas Eve we went to Matt's parents house and had a great time. Christmas morning we opened presents, then my family came over to have Christmas lunch.. we even had a very special visitor stop by.

We had a very nice holiday spending time with our families and getting to slow down a little bit and enjoy each other. We had many blessings to count this year.

Thankgiving - A review of pictures

We had a wonderful and busy Thanksgiving break. We hosted a real nice Thanksgiving lunch at our house with my family, then off to Matt's aunt house for the evening where the kids got to play with the cows, then to watch A&M beat t.u... WHOOP.HE LOVES HIS FOOD!
MODEL POSE!COLIN WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT THE COWS!Friday I took Katherine to see Tangled, what a cute movie. We had a nice girls date. Saturday we went to Matt's parents for another "Thanksgiving" meal. Sunday we had my family over to say goodbye to my parents, they left for the next month or so to travel and go to see my grandma in Arizona. They are going to fly back for Christmas, then travel some more after that. Here's Colin cuddleing with his PaPa Wayne (my dad), Katherine feeding her baby cousin Kannon, my mom & Katherine & Kannon, and my brother Russell with his mini-me.
