Christmas Day, 2016


We woke up Christmas morning to 8 inches of beautiful snow.  The boys were so excited and woke up at 6:00 am.  We had a fun time opening gifts, enjoyed a nice breakfast together, and went over to my parents house for lunch and more gift exchanging.  We got lots of lovely gifts and had a great time hanging out with our families.

Christmas Eve with the Dean family

Colin's family came to be with us for Christmas this year.  Colin's brother Stuart and his family came from Thailand.  Colin's sister Erin lives in Utah now with her family.  Colin's parents came from Maryland.  Because all of the family that was in town also had the other halves of their family here, we decided to celebrate Christmas together on Christmas Eve.  Bruce put on a huge spread with meats, cheeses, salads, and desserts.  
The cousins exchanged gifts and that evening we opened them.  The kids also opened gifts from their grandparents.  
We had a lovely day together.

December Birthdays

My two nephews have December birthdays.  Jax turned 4 on the 19th and we hosted a dinner the night before on Sunday.  Ocean turned 8 on the 22nd and his parents threw him a party at All Star Bowling.  We've had a lot of fun celebrating these two cuties!
