Christmas 2011 at our House

Snow before Christmas, we loved it!

Cookies and milk for Santa Clause!!! (Notice our dead Christmas tree, don't buy a tree from Wal-mart people!)

New Pajamas! (Christmas Eve)
Thank you Natalie and Jared!

New toys! (Christmas morning)

Thanks for the dollies Grandma Nielsen

"Once there was a snowman, snowman, snowman, once there was a snowman tall, tall, tall..."

New coat, new p.j.s, new ring, new shoes, sweeeeeet!

New hat, new head lamp, new earrings, new necklace, new p.j.s, new slippers, oh ya baby!


Christmas night after dinner with the missionaries, we left for Utah at 9:30 p.m. and arrived in Scofield at my families cabin at 6:30 a.m. (Thanks for driving all night Matt!) We surprised everyone when we showed up! It was like Christmas morning all over, only better because family is better than anything from a box!

My mother made these dresses, and the girls ball caps and Dani's p.j.s and Carlee's nightgown or pajama dress as Matt called it. She also had my Teddy Ruxbin and Grubby restored! Thank you so much Grandma!!!

Thank you for all the amazing gifts and wonderful time everyone! It was so good to see everyone.

For part of our Christmas vacation we took a little trip to Idaho and visited a lot more of our family:
Aunt Molly got to visit us in the van:)

Sean, Shannon, Ashlynn, and Taylor Reed (friends from Dental school!)
Carlee and Dani's Great Grandpa and Grandma Nielsen
My Grandpa Pincock
My Grandpa Jemmett

Carlee and Dani's new cousin Zeelee and cousin Cora

We also visited Matt's sister Jenny and her husband Scott and their 4 adorable kiddos, Matt's friend Steve, and my friend Alyssa and her husband and kid. It was so good to see you all! (Sorry we didn't get pictures with you.) We love you all.

Thank you to Matt for taking all of these amazing pictures and preserving our memories of a wonderful Christmas this year.

Sledding at the Pincock Cabin, Christmas break 2011

Go Quinn!

Go Matt!
I might be too big a pansy for this now from the looks of it:

I survived!
Go Cyrie!
Quinn and Dylan jumping over each other. NOT safe, we know!

Carlee loved sledding,
and so did Dani.

Go Harper!


Sledding sure can be fun but it definitely isn't the safest form of entertainment. Of all the years we have been doing it without getting hurt, this year we were not so lucky. Little Trev, my six year old nephew, broke his femur! Poor guy. He had to lie in pain for over an hour waiting for paramedics to arrive at the cabin and a helicopter to fly him quickly to Primary Children's Hospital for surgery. He is alright now, just immobilized for 2 months! Hang in there kiddo!!!

We saw big foot at the cabin this year!
