Christmas 2010

We made the trek up to Detroit for Christmas this year to visit Ryan’s Shannon and her family.  The boys were amazingly good in the car, the weather was great, the Chino’s are always a great time. It was so much fun…except for the fact that Lincoln was throwing up 3 of the 5 days we were there.  He was just sick over Thanksgiving!  The poor guy.  I felt so bad for him and so grateful for Shannon’s washer and dryer that we used every night to wash blankets and pajamas.  Luckily no one else got sick.

Here are Shannon’s adorable kids on Christmas morning waiting to go downstairs to see what Santa brought.IMG_6637

And here’s Lincoln Christmas morning after being sick all night with his very tired mama.IMG_6639

Here we all are.  Lincoln got a ball popper toy and fire truck riding toy.  Sawyer got…nothing, but it’s cool.  He’s not too upset about it.  I wish I would have gotten a close up picture of him on his first Christmas.  My parents gave us a cruise to Alaska!  Yay!  My whole family minus the 5 grandbabies will be going in June. Anybody want to volunteer to babysit?  It’s so fun to have something to look forward to. IMG_6652

Here’s the whole gang except me.  We really enjoyed the Chinos.  They are such a fun family and my nieces and nephew couldn’t be cuter.  And they were so sweet with my boys.IMG_6636

Maya is 4 years old and all she wanted for Christmas was a hockey stick and puck.  Too funny.  Glad Santa was able to find her one.

We also went swimming at the Chino’s amazing gym pool, went to the temple, made doughnuts, played games, watched movies, painted our nails…good times.

 

Merry Christmas!IMG_6555

I love that last pic of Lincoln and Sawyer under the tree. Lincoln's dimples are to die for and Sawyer looks so content! I'm mega jealous of your Alaskan cruise! What fun to have that to look forward to. My grandparents took our extended family on a Hawaiian cruise a few years ago for Christmas and it was wonderful to have everyone together on a fancy vacation. I hope you and your family have a great time too.

It's probably easier to find someone in Pittsburgh to babysit, but if all else fails, you can call on me. I'll meet you half way on a road stop in WV if needed and give your boys a fabulous week of fun with their buddy Bradford. :)

Glad you guys had a nice Christmas with family!

Uuuuuhh!! So much to say!

First of all, yeah, you gotta get rid of those white lines. And I can't blow up the pic the family pic w/ lincoln on the truck. If you re-size it, even slightly, in livewriter it should work.

I. can't. believe. Lincoln. was. sick!!! SERIOUSLY?????? I guess I can believe it b/c that kid is always sick! Poor Lincoln! What is the DEAL?! Good thing you know a doctor. He looks so cute and sad cuddling you. Bless the tat.

Shannon's kids are cute.

I'm so happy Lincoln got a riding toy. I bet he LOVES it.

He looks cute in the Dora chair. Would you believe Anderson and I saw our first 5 min. of Dora over Christmas break?

So glad you got to go to the temple! That is great Shannon lives so close to you. I bet you'll always remember this Christmas.

Sawyer is getting BIG.

Yay for Alaska!!!!!!! Yay for our Utah Febcation!!!!
