Family Christmas get together

Each year my family gets together to celebrate the Christmas season. It's hard for all my siblings and I, with our families to all be together for Christmas, so we pick a weekend before Christmas to get together. This year, we went to Caldwell. There are always fun activities planned and we always have a great time. This year has been my favorite weekend that we've had so far. We went ice skating, swimming (outdoors, Laura has a friend with a heated pool), Uncle David pulled the kids on a sled behind his 4 wheeler, we had a talent show, a gift exchange, and of course yummy food and great company! These pictures are totally in random order. Here's Chris showing off his talent of juggling. The kids getting ready for their gift exchange game.
Jace and Gavin, two cute cousins and best buds!

Two more cute cousins, Lindsay and Dexen.

Laura reading a poem she wrote for the talent show. This poem was so funny, it was about the family and she remembered details from years ago that I haven't thought about in years. It was a great poem, that had us all laughing.

Ali and Baylie sang a song while I played the piano for them.

Shrek even came to share a Christmas poem for us! (Kara)

Uncle David pulling Makenna on the sled.

Chris and Jace being pulled.

Another set of cute cousins, Baylie and Kacie. These girls have a great time together.

Kenna, all bundled up to go outside.

Lindsay and Makenna on the ice! Once again, Ali was the one that lasted the longest! She loves to ice skate.

My WHOLE family! What a great looking bunch! I know who everyone is so I won't name them all : )


  1. That IS a great looking bunch! It was a great weekend--glad we could all be there! Don't forget to mention that Ali also went swimming while her siblings whimped out--by the way, the water was fine! :)

  2. Okay, so the song I wanted was actually on your play list:) What was going through my mind when I was thinking it was an Adam Lambert song:) Usually when I check your blog it would always come on, but the order changed on me one day. Also, it looked like you had a great time with your family. I love family get togethers.
