More Christmas Vacation

Well, I'm still not to the actual Christmas pictures, but these are more from our vacation to Utah over Christmas break.

My Dad loves his new hat he got for Christmas. My adorable nephew, Beck, wasn't so sure about it. I LOVE the look on his face in this shot!Isn't he soooo cute?!
Beck and Grandpa This is our attempt to get a shot with all the grandkids (8 of them, #9 expected to arrive in May from Spencer and Missy, their 1st!) Well, at least you can see them all...mostly. ;)
My Grandma Morris made these adorable bear treats for all the kids. I thought they were so cute!!!
Megan thought they were adorable, too! Btw, yes, she now has braces, too! She got them on in October, just before Halloween so now we have 2 girls with the expander and braces.

I took these shots of Brooke because I thought it was funny and cute that the yogurt was dripping down her chin. The life of an almost 2 yr old!How much cuter can it get?!

Light from windows is lucious. Megan in her pretty white snow clothes in the window light is even better. What a character Megan is. I love her to death.

Carli's pink hat

I love this little hat. I think it's so cute and a great color. Carli makes it look even better--she's pretty cute herself. ;)

Here she is eating her snack, but has the hat on so she can go play out in the snow as soon as she's finished eating.Another silly camera pose. She tries a little too hard, but it makes for some hilarious pics. lol!Finally mad it outside and is throwing the snow just like her sisters did earlier.Lovie (the dog) getting into the action


We were able to go sledding once it finally snowed in Cedar City! The kids were ecstatic to get on the hill--one downfall--it was only 15 degrees. Yikes!!! It was sooooo cold, but that didn't stop them, of course. They had a great time!

I have yet to blog about Halloween and many happenings from 2010, but I'm going to start here, after Christmas, with the snow we got while we were in Cedar City at my parents' house. It was not a white Christmas, but that was perfectly fine. A few days later we got the snowstorm we were waiting for!!! The kids were thrilled! Brooke loved playing in her first big snow. Here she is in my favorite little coat of hers. :)
Here are her monkey mittens she got for Christmas. Aren't they darling? However, the dog loved them, too, and every time she walked out the door Lovie would come steal one off her hand and run off!Hence, this picture with the older girls dragging Lovie off to the "cage" at the back of the yard (just a fenced in area where she can still run around, but is out of reach of the kids. Now the mittens are safe! Megan thought it would be fun to throw snow in the air. She had a good time doing this and did it over and over again. Makes for a cool picture! She has her hand full of snow ready to throw...ready, set,
Kate and her snow--I think it was supposed to be a shape, but I can't remember what (a dog, maybe?) Happy Kate!
Brooke, Kate, cousin Shelby, MeganBrooke--I think she was getting cold!Kate throwing her snow--you can see Brooke starting to do this, too--"monkey see, monkey do"
Closer up of Brooke throwing the snow. Enjoying it you think? Eh, not so much!
Stay tuned for more about our Christmas vacation!
