Justin and Chandler had something to prove because they both tried to haul all four kids up the hill but ending up needing some help to get it done. Here's Ellie, McKin, Ogden, and Anna.Well, that fun didn't last too long so we decided to step the fun up a notch and headed to Amber's parents house to hook the sleds to the four-wheelers.
They were having quite a bit of fun until.........
McKin took quite the spill and came in crying. She had snow stuck in places I didn't even know existed. As bad as a felt for her, I can't help but laughing at this photo. She was pretty much done after that, but we did take Halle for a quick spin since she looked so stinking cute in this little snowsuit that Amber let me borrow.
We ended the day by taking the girls to see Alvin and the Chipmunks at the good old Blackfoot Plaza Twin. Thanks to the Manwarings for the great time as always and the Ogdens for letting us use their home and 4-wheelers!
Then we dug in to the presents and McKin was so excited that she thanked the person for the gift and told them how much she loved it before she even opened it. One of my favorite parts about Christmas is seeing everyone's reaction to the presents that I've tried hard to pick out well. I was very excited to find out that Chan had gotten me a trip to NYC for Christmas!! We leave Jan. 2nd and he even got tickets for Phantom, Wicked, and the Conan O'Brien Show. I was shocked and very excited!
The next morning we woke up to find out what Santa brought. McKin got a barbie bike and a strawberry shortcake salon among other things and Halle got lots of clothes and a little bike/push toy. It is so fun to see your kids get so excited.
We then went to the Daws for a great prime rib dinner and more presents! YEA!! It was fun and it was also great to then have a relaxing night at home. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!
This is a shout out to my wonderful cousin Jaime Grant, who introduced me to my newest love in life, the Back to Basics Cocoa Latte. The Cocoa Latte debuted at my party as the main character in my hot chocolate bar (also Jaime's idea) which was full of all the great things you see below. We have had hot chocolate nearly every day since and yes my fridge is still full of coffee mate. I went a tad overboard, but I hate for people not to have options.
It was a great party, thanks to my great family. We definitely missed the Bradshaws for Christmas but were glad to have this little substitute.

McKinley took this photo of us at the end and I thought it turned out pretty well. Maybe photography is in her future.....
Merry Christmas Everyone!!!
