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.
