Christmas Fun

We ended up in Idaho this year for Chirstmas. We were going to do Christmas morrning here at our house and then go up to my mom and dads Christmas day to be there for Julia's wedding. As Christmas eve day progressed and the outlook for the weather got worse and worse we made the dicision to pack up and go. So we spent Chirstmas Eve on the road but it was a good thing we did. When we got up there with in 15 minutes the wind picked up and the snow started to come down. I think we were being watched over and blessed to make it up there without weather problems. Christmas morring was lots of fun. Santa found Alison and Porter even though they were at grandma's. Alison wase very worried that Santa wouldn't find her if she wasn't at her house. All my brothers and sisters were at my moms this year so in all we had 20 people in her livingroom for Christmas morrning. We tried to do the open one gift at a time and were letting the kids get theirs all done before the rest of us started. But no one was watching Aaron and he opened all his gifts before anyone else even got started. LOL Crazy 17 year old! It eneded up snowing and blowing all day. Made for a very white Christmas!
Porter was to busy to look at the camara.

Alison with her new tea pot. It is by far the favorit toy.



Trying to see what Santa brought.


Cheese!! The kids got new Jammies for Christmas eve.




Alison loves puzzles.






The nursess at the hospital made a stoking for Kynaston.




Kynaston was happy to just sleep threw the whole thing.


Kynaston's jammies had a raindeer on the back side.
The day after Christmas Julia got married in the Idaho Falls Temple. Congratulations Julia and Charlie!!! We love you guys.
