Christmas Day with the Family

Bailee is ready for Christmas dinner, Nana always makes sure everything is beautifully decorated and special for this day, even down to the little kids table!

Liv, Bentley, and Ellie patiently waiting to eat and drink from their "special" glasses!

Nana and Grandpa passing out gifts to very excited grandkids! (and kids)

Mclaren is excited for her present too!
I just had to post this pic of her...she's just too cute!

I think Miles was happy!

A gift that is fun for the whole family!

A very suprised Bailee opening her gift from nana and grandpa that she thought for sure she wasn't going to get! Spoiled!

After Christmas and all the busy, craziness was over, we spent most of our time hanging out together in the basement...

I know this is a bad pic, but I couldn't leave out a pic of the Ping-Pong table that we all played some intense Around-the-World games on! As far as the one-on-one Championship games go...so far, no one has been able to beat Josh! He has got some serious table tennis skills!

I just thought this was a funny pic of how Livvy carries Jasper around, she loves him and never lets him go!

We are so lucky to be able to spend the holidays with the people we love and every year we are reminded of how blessed we really are. We love visiting grandparents, cousins, and good friends and wish that the time didn't go by so fast, but we enjoy every minute of it while we are there!

Christmas Morning

Bailee and Miles waiting to open their presents from Santa!
(only the little pile in the front was for them...all my mom's gifts made it look like they had more than they really did!)
They were excited, but since they only had a few gifts each, it went really, really fast!

Sledding at the Mitchell's family cabin

Miles all bundled up ready for some midnight sledding with Dad!
Sean and Miles ready to take off down the hill!

The view from the cabin, the sledding hill is about a mile long...its really fun when the snowmobile is working and they can pick you up at the bottom, but when you have to walk back up...not so much fun!

Miles had so much fun, he must have gone down the hill at least 20 times, spinning around on the disc the entire way!

Bailee and cousin Mary trying to get warm by the heater in the cabin!
