Merry Christmas/Happy New Year

Christmas at home with my parents is the best! It was so nice to get out of the snow and enjoy the sunshine. I think this is the first Christmas since I was probably 10 years old that I was actually the one to get everyone out of bed. Pregnancy has made it so I can't sleep anymore. I started eating breakfast and woke everyone up at 5:30am.Chad always has the best bed head.
My dad opening some new clothes...his favorite thing to get I'm sure.
This is after we went back to sleep and had chance to clean up a little bit.
It is dog city at my grandmas when everyone gets together. My mom and dads dog Bubba isn't in this pic because he wouldn't cooperate, but usually there is 5 of these little guys running around.
I think all of these girls live up North by me but it's still fun to go out to eat when we're all home for the Holidays. If you look close you can see the war wound Chad got at Golds Gym. He was playing basketball and got his eye about gouged out.
Heather and Jess were ambitious and hosted a little New Years party at their house. We ate some awesome fondue and played games. It was a really fun night and a great way to bring in the New Year.
This is Heather and her cute little guy Calvin who was born in November. I thought this pic was so cute because you can tell my flash scared the heck out of him.
This post got a little long but we hope everyone had a great New Years and has a fantastic 2009!

Looks like you had a lot of fun for Christmas and New Year's Eve! Guess we picked the wrong time to go down to St. George since we got the snow and you got to escape the cold. Cute pictures by the way!

Glad to see that you two had a good Christmas down there in St. George. I think my highlight would have been the dog parade.

Nice job getting all the dogs to look at the camera at once...I can't do that with two! I saw your little nephew in the newspaper...how fun! Good luck to you on having yours soon!
