Christmas morning we headed to my parents house for breakfast and to spend the rest of the day with my family. Here are a few pics of the kids opening up their presents from my family.

We had a wonderful Christmas and were so happy to be able to spend it with both of our families.

Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve, we went to Tim's parents' house to spend some time with his family. We had a good time frosting cookies, having a Christmas program, putting on our new pj's, playing games, and just spending time with them. It was a little different this year with both Marlon and Mary being absent, and we missed not having them there. Here are some pictures from the night:

Then on Christmas morning we woke up and opened presents with Tim's family before we headed back to Salt Lake to be with my family.

Here are a few other random shots of the Christmas Tree lights.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas

I wanted to get this Christmas Card out in the mail to everyone, but I ran out of time. I know it's funny that I make Christmas Cards, and you would think I would be the first to have mine done but that wasn't the case this year. We hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas. Also I know that I have slacked on my blog big time. I have a lot to catch up on and hope to get caught up in the next few weeks.

Santa Pictures

One of the fun things that we have liked to do over the years is compare Santa pictures from years past to see how the girls grow, and to look at their similarities and differences at similar ages. One thing that really struck us this year was seeing how much Addison in 2007 looked like Drew does now.

Addison and Drew

We took the girls out one afternoon since I decided I wanted to give a few updated pictures of the girls to my parents and Tim's parents for Christmas. Here are few of our favorites.

Christmas Dresses

I wanted to try and get a quick shot of our girls in there Christmas dresses after church. Addison loves her brown dress. She always wants to wear it, according to her it is so nice and comfy.

We wanted to try and get a picture with both girls, but Drew wasn't really up for it. As you can see from the picture below.

The Nogger

There are many things to look forward to during Christmas, and the Nogger is one of those things for Tim and me. It's a gathering of friends that we don't get to see too often, wearing their most beautiful Christmas sweaters, having dinner, enjoying one anothers company, and drinking egg nog. Every year it seems to get a little crazier, with the outfits becoming more creative. This year, the attire was pretty tame compared to years past:

With one exception

As you can see it wasn't to hard to announce a winner for the famous Santa trophy, even though I did love Tricia's denim jumper.

Gingerbread Trains

Before Christmas, we got together with some of our friends and thought it would be fun for the kids to decorate some gingerbread trains. This was the first year that I felt like Addison was old enough to really enjoy doing this. She had a great time and loved decorating the train.
