April was in town for Christmas and New years she asked us to go to the bar that her and Jen go to since she always goes to the ones we like to go to. At first I wasn't for sure, it didn't sound much fun. It is in the middle of nowhere, I felt like it was out of the movie The Hills Have Eyes. I was waiting for the deformed people. But I have to say it was a blast! Can't wait to go again.
Nathan had to work so it was Brandy, Richard, April, Jen, Jen's mom Jill, Tristin, Mishia, and ME! We sat next to the bar so we got some shockingly up close and personal views. (I'll I have to say is if your going to wear a skirt and dance on the bar PLEASE make sure you have panties on!)
The kids had a pretty god Christmas this year, I think Santa was too good. I love to see how excited the kids get. It brings back memories when I was a kid and My sisters and brother and I could never sleep because how excited we were. This year they started waking us and 4:30am, we didn't even go to bed until 2:30am. We told them to go back to bed, after the fourth time we finally got up at 7:00.
Ryan was a little excited for his i pod! It snowed all night this is what we woke up too!
Around 1:00pm we went down to Salt Lake City to visit Nathan's side of the family and this is what it looked like there, SUN and no SNOW!! Later that night My mom and dad, Angie and Kodis, Nikki and Jeff, and Garret came over for dinner and more presents. My mom and dad
Nathan and I

Mom, Dad, Garret, Josh, and Ryan
After that at about 8:30pm we headed over to Brandy for more presents. WOW, what a busy but good Christmas!
Ever since I was a little girl we have had a tradition to go out to dinner and to a movie on Christmas Eve. This year we only made it to dinner, I had to work and do some last minute SHOPPING. When I was little I always looked forward to go out, it helped make the night go by faster when your so excited for Santa to come!
Nathan was tired he had to work and only got 2 hours of
Josh, Ryan, and Bryson have been plating outside for hours since it has been snowing ( I'm not complaining). They are building a snow fort. They told me they all have duties and Josh is the boss, no surprise there. Josh fires his brother's every hour because they are not working to his standers. But what I THINK is there are too many chiefs and not enough Indians.
Today Nathan's side all got together for our first Christmas party. It was nice to get everyone together. Emily e-mailed me asking if I had any ideas on how to get all the family together. I mentioned on having a Christmas party. And I might say it turned out pretty good!
Today We had our family pictures taken. Of course it had to be freezing, the weather has been so warm the first few weeks of the month... Well not today! My cousin Kristin and her husband Caiser have a photography business. Caiser was the brave one to come and take our pictures in the frigid weather! I must say he did an awesome job! Thanks Kristin and Caiser for the awesome pictures and Caiser for freezing your butt off. We love you!
