Christmas 2008

This year we had a houseful of family and friends for Christmas eve through Christmas day. We had 14 spend the night. Melissa invited 2 of her friends, Sarah and Crystal, Sarah's 2 kids Ty and Mya, Stephen and his 3 kids Tallis, Brooke and Shea, Melissa and her 3 kids, Dakota, Clayton and Joannie. We played Scene it, sang Karaoke Christmas songs, and ate Mexican food. It was great! The kids played Twister and opened their first gift. It is a family tradition.. The kids get all excited to open the first present and have been asking all night if they could and it is Pj's.. A cruel joke to them... They all look so cute in them though.. Everyone was spoiled nicely and we all had a great time. It was a little weird without my mom there. Out of all the Christmas's in my lifetime I have spent only 3 or 4 without her. She spent the week at my sister Peggy's in Utah. She had a wonderful time and got to see all of her kids and grandkids that still live there. I hope all of you had a wonderful Holiday too!
