We had 2 weeks off school for Christmas break this year and we loved it!! We spent the first week at home and the 2nd week in Missouri with my family.
One night we went out to eat and shopping with the Middleton's. We got Addi and Grant's picture taken with Santa. It cracked me up because they both just crawled up in his lap like they had been friends forever. It turned out to be a great picture, but I'm not sure what I did with it...sad but true. Anyway, as soon as Grant was finished with Santa he spotted the guns to shoot deer. He was so excited to say the least. Here are a few pics of him thinking he is shooting deer...
Christmas morning was Beau, Grant, and myself and I loved it. I really thought I might get sad because this was the first Christmas we were not going to be with any family, but it turned out awesome!!! Grant LOVED opening all of his presents, and then playing with them for the rest of the day. Beau and I enjoyed watching him opening them and playing with them the rest of the day. The Middleton's invited us over to their family lunch, which was very thoughtful and sweet, so we did still get to eat a great meal. Let's face it, if they wouldn't have invited us over we probably would have eaten sandwich's or a frozen pizza!!:)
Doodaa and Pops went to the NFR in Vegas and bought Grant and bull rider's vest and had 4 bull riders sign it!!
After a long day of playing, here he is with his ug, pillow, and yes a pacifier! Our friends got him this "ugly" doll when we brought him home, and he for some reason here lately loves it, and sleeps with it every night.
I bought him these precious reindeer pj's for Christmas eve night and he did not like them at all!! He tried to pull them off!
Now moving on to our gifts...I totally got a pink snuggie and LOVE it!
We had a white Christmas which was also awesome, so here is Grant super excited to go play in the snow!
Mindy and precious Gracelyn!!
The kids...Grant, Emma, Hope, Kado, Steven, Michael, Sarah, and Gracelyn
Michael helping Grant open his massive horse book! I really think it weighs more then GrantThese crazy girls wanted me to beautify them, so I spent 2 hours getting them ready and these are the results...not bad
Emma took sooooo many pictures of herself with my camera, and then jumped in a lot of pictures I was taking. Grant and Kado sat here everyday to eat a banana together. They were so fun this time. The older they get the more they enjoy playing with each other. I love it!
Here we are at the skating rink. Trent is 6' 6". He is not wearing roller skates and I am! How sad is that!!! I am HUGE!
I love this picture of all us about to hit the floor!
The funny thing about this picture is that mom is standing flat footed and so am I!!
When Monica and I get together we tend to do A LOT of laughing, and the best part of that is that Monica cries everytime she laughs! So if you it looks like Monica's eyes are glistening, they are, with tears!!:) We told Beau to take a picture of us which turned into like 23 pictures because we kept laughing, and thought that our faces looked fat!
