Christmas 2009

We encountered some very cold weather on our way to Las Vegas. Here's a picture of the kids in front of Burger King in Colorado. Check out the snow on the table behind them!!



Luckily the weather in Las Vegas was beautiful! We got there just as the leaves were falling off the trees. McKay got the leaf blower out and blew all the leaves onto the trampoline for the kids to play in. They had so much fun!


Jackson, Sydney, and Conner.

On Christmas Eve we headed over to my Aunt's house for our annual Christmas Eve Party where the kids acted out the Nativity. Sydney was the angel, Jackson a wise man, and Carter was Baby Jesus. (He didn't stay wrapped in his swaddling clothes very well).


Next was Christmas morning. Here are the kids waiting on the stairs for all their sleepy aunts and uncles to get out of bed to see what Santa brought.


From Santa the kids got dress ups!


After playing with their Santa stuff we had our traditional Ham Souffle breakfast. The sun was shining through the window just right that the kids needed hats...they didn't mind! Haha.

After we ate breakfast we opened presents from under the tree. We were all spoiled from Grandma and Grandpa, friends, and relatives. I didn't get any good pictures of the kids opening gifts, but they had so much fun and loved everything.
And here's a cute picture of my mom and Carter.

We had a great Christmas and a really fun vacation. Thanks everyone who helped us with our crazy kids and crying baby!! We love you all.
