Merry Christmas!
May you all be in your happy place!


Oh Christmas tree....

oh Christmas tree... ok I guess you get the idea! We had fun getting our tree, we went to Star Nursery across the street because they had the best deals. I think Carter had fun, but he was more into the wagons they had. Dan held out the first tree & it was HUGE!! I told him it was his choice but I didn't think it was going to fit in the corner of our room. It was probably 7 ft high & it was so full & pretty. The height wasn't the problem, the problem was how round it was. So sure enough we get it home & in our family room & Dan says "It looks a lot smaller around all the other trees!" Well after moving some furniture we made it work, so what if you can't see the t.v. from some spots! We laugh & make jokes about it now! Great memories to remember.

Ready to go!
The "Beast!"
P.S. Don't mind my velour suit & Dan's running shoes, we normally don't dress that way, we just got done working out.


Turkey Day '09

We had a really good Thanksgiving in St. George with all of my family, except one brother. For our big dinner we went to my aunt's house. Her son & his family were there, so we had a total of 20 people! I love this time of year & being with the ones I love.
This is the only picture I took from Thanksgiving day. The kids were pretending to be Kitty Cat's & my sister was feeding them.
Here are all the grand kids. Kate, Maddox, Griffin, Mr. Carter, & Marissa.
Cousins fooling around.
My crazy kid!
One day we all headed over to the red rock that says Dixie on it. You can climb up & see the gorgeous view. Here are my cute twin nieces.
The view of St. George.
My crazy nephew! (It runs in the family!)
Yaya & Papa with most of the grand kids.
I love this one. Carter didn't want to take a picture & Marissa's face is hilarious!
My brother Grant & I. We chose to sit & wait for everyone so we didn't get our shoes dirty! :-)
Carter & Dan.
I also love this one because Madd didn't want to take the picture & the girls are just looking at him like what's wrong!?
Finally us taking a pic in front of the beautiful red rock.
