6. Every time I would go to take a picture of Alayna she would smile!! She must be a natural model. Isn't she adorable?!

5. Niel shot an Elk Christmas Eve Day. As one of our Christmas presents, John cut of the meat for Niel and Joyce cooked up a roast for us to eat together for Christmas dinner. (I can't believe I didn't take a picture!)

3. It snowed and snowed and snowed! It was definitely a White Christmas this year!!

Santa brought both Niel and I Rockband for Christmas. I guess he figured we each liked it so much, and he knows how we don't like to share, so he gave us each our own game...haha!
