Christmas 2011

Christmas 2011 we spent in Utah this year. All of my siblings got together the week before Christmas before they left to the in-laws.  We always have a delicious gourmet dinner thanks to Malia as part of our Christmas Eve Celebration. We also do a devotional giving by one of the couples in the family.  Then we open presents.  It was so fun just to be able to spend quality time with everyone!! We also went roller skating as a family this year. It was a blast!! Kyle and I were trying to skate through each other's legs.  I was to short and he was too inflexible to fit through my legs :) but I made it through his a few times.
They let us push our kids around in their strollers while we skated. So nice!

Kristen was 8 months pregnant! What a trooper for skating!!

Grandkids holding their favorite presents from Grandma and Grandpa

We also went bowling with Ben, Kristen, Reese, Grandma, and our family.

Christmas morning. Santa left Kajsa a kitchen and Trey a remote control race car that has batteries that won't die :) This was trey's request. He was very particular about the batteries not dying!!

Our little candy cane. Taken with a phone so it's blurry

Grandma gave all of the kids new jammies.

Kajsa and Wesley got these toys they can pull around. Perfect for their ages!

November 2011

We went to St. George this year for Thanksgiving and we had a blast.  Steve and Lynda travelled up to Uncle Bill and Aunt Kenna's house to be with us too. Kyle's family has a tradition of making Gingerbread houses over the Thanksgiving break.  It's so much fun and everyone is so creative!!

Kajsa's just happy to eat the candy we used to decorate the houses

Trey decorating his own house. He did a great job!!

Mason is on a club soccer team and had some games over the break so we went and cheered her on. It was fun to watch her play and it made us excited for the day when we can cheer on our own kids while they play sports
