Christmas is always my favorite time of year. I love getting together with all of my loved ones. Christmas Eve is really a special treat with the family coming over for dinner, program and gifts. Christmas Day was especially wonderful. This is our last Christmas with Blake before his mission. It was great to spend the day with him and enjoyhis company. It is so great having him in our home as an "only child" , I am not sure he feels the same way though.
The girls have pictures of our Christmas Eve, so instead of blogging those pictures, I put some new ones up of Bub. His phone call Christmas evening with the whole family there had to be my highlight of the day. He looks so great and is doing so great. He is so happy and healthy. He has been gone just short of 1 year. I CANNOT believe how fast the time is speeding by!

I really need some help with the computor. This picture was supposed to be with the last post. I get everything confused. This is the pic that you can't see Carly and Beau, but they were there and there was no crying from any of the little ones.

We had another great day today as we crossed off another great idea to "get excited for Christmas". We bundled up because is was 25 degrees and headed off to Christmas Village in down town Ogden. All five grandbabies were there with their mothers. Carly and Beau were there also even though they were so bundled up in their strollers to be seen. Afterwards we all went to Grandma Barb's house and had grilled cheese sandwiches and hot chocolate and sat around and visited. It's all good!

It is Abigail's 2nd birthday today. I had several pictures of her, but everyone of them were very blurry and had to be deleted. These are the only ones of her where she was holding even slightly still and one of them I had to sneak and take while she wasn't looking,but I did get a great picture of Carly and Dad and one of Luke.

Here is Adam Elf. He has the biggest blue eyes and is an absolute doll!

Here is Thanksgiving night. I got a few more pictures when some of the kids came over to visit some more. How grateful I am for my beautiful family.

I got a couple of pictures on Thanksgiving Day before my batteries died. I will make sure that I have new batteries for Christmas. At least I got a picture of at least 3 of my little darlings.

Our last hot dog cookout of the season. Any reason at all is great reason to get everyone together!

Meg, Jess and I all had the same picture on our blogs of the kids and I thought that maybe I should get something different up. I decided that I would put Bub on and let everyone know that he is doing really great! He is happy and healthy and that is no small feat if you knew what he ate. I cannot believe that he has been gone almost a year (January 9th). Time has flown by! I look so forward to getting the next missionary out.

Because I am a little blog challenged, I can't put all the pictures I want on one blog and I wanted this picture on because it is the most important with mom, dad and Carly. What a great day this was! Thanks Meg and Ben.

What a wonderful occasion it is to have family all together at the blessing of another sweet baby. This is Carly's baby blessing. We all got together after for a great meal at the Senior Center in Plain City.

Here are the guys doing more guy things. This time they are putting a gate post in to start putting a fence up in the back yard.

Here are the guys doing "guy" things. They have a lot of fun hanging out when they find time Saturday afternoons.
