Christmas Hike

We had a beautiful Christmas hike. There is no snow this year so everything was pretty dry and colorful!

It's one of our favorite traditions!

Then we head back to have dinner with Grandma and Grandpa J and open presents!

Christmas Eve

Grandma and Grandpa came over with a very large bag of gifts on Christmas Eve! They must love us!

For Christmas we each get a new pair of PJ's. Here we are.... modeling our new attire.

And here we are being our inner selves!

We had a fun Christmas Eve. We each picked something for an awesome dinner. WE WERE STUFFED. We each picked a game and played a bunch together. Then, we watched ELF. After a long fun night the kiddo's settled in for a good nights rest.... anxiously awaiting Santa!

Holiday Decorating

Aunt Ang invited us over for some delicious soup and she had some fun decorating things for us to do!

There were ornaments, cookies, and gingerbread houses to create!

All the cousin came which made it even more great!

Grandma and Grandpa were there too! They jumped right in and helped us make some fun things!

It's so fun to have everyone's creative juices flowing.

Christmas Concert

We received a special treat and a perfect way to start the holiday. Megan's choir put on a Christmas concert. It was so great to hear her sing.... she did a great job!

It was a quiet Thanksgiving for Niel and I. The boys were with their dad in Idaho. We celebrated the best we know how.... with family.

We had dinner with the Jaramillo Family, including Grandma and Grandpa Dean too.

Lots and lots of fun to be had and plenty of good food to eat too!

Awesome Coaches

Football is over but end of year parties are the final way to end the year. We have so much fun celebrating a wonderful year.

I forgot my camera the night Gar had his team party. Below is is awesome team!!!

Zander loves Coach Edwards. Me too! I don't know how anyone has so much patience for a little team like they had. It was great to spend another year with him as Zander's coach! Zander won the "Hit Man" award. He definitely had a great year!

Coach Templeton and Coach Hancock are were fantastic as usual. Stocks is lucky to have them. We celebrated at Shakey's and had a ton of fun!

This was Conner's last year with the Livingston brothers as his coaches. Conner has played every year with these good men. He has learned so much and we appreciate all their dedication.

And I just had to add this picture. This is me and Conner and our difference in height. Yeah.... I am sad my little boy is turning into a tall, young man.

Christmas Tree

We decided to put up our tree very early this year. Even before Thanksgiving.

I say.... bring in the Christmas spirit early.... why not?
