christmas morning!

Our Christmas morning was delightful.

6am and waiting to go into the Christmas room (it's so exciting!)

Everyone got what he wanted...

Mom and Dad gave each other the same present :) Waffles, anyone!?

Mom needs a long Winter's nap...

Happy Holidays everyone!

santa's been here!!

...and the kids don't know it yet!! It's all so exciting...I sure wish this peaceful feeling would last.

I heard the two oldest boys plotting to set their alarm for the middle of the night so they could get a good peek before anyone else, but...

Clever Santa...he wrapped up the whole room, so there will be NO PEEKING!! :)
Merry Christmas
Ho! Ho! Ho!

holiday tradition

One of our traditions (that we stole from the Laycock family :) is to go to the Salt Lake Marriott the week before Christmas to partake of the wonders of the Holidays in the city.

The view from our hotel room...overlooking the skating rink.

Nothing like ice skating the week before Christmas!

This year we were lucky enough to have cousins with us and we had so much fun. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures until after they left, but we sure loved having them. We road TRAX, ate at the yummy Lion House, and swam in the hotel pool. Too much fun. Let's do it again next year!

family christmas card

I realize that just about anyone reading my blog will be receiving one of these in the mail, but at the rate I'm going, my cards might not arrive before 2010 December 25th, so I'll post here just in case.

Family Christmas card shoots are miserable challenging, but I thought this year I'd try to take advantage of one of the more violent funny pictures we took that day.

May your Holidays be filled with peace :)
