Christmas in Washington

This year we spent Christmas in Washington with Nick's side of the family. We had a great time relaxing, eating food, talking, playing games, watching movies, and sledding. Here are some pictures of our awesome trip:

This is Nick's mom's delicious caramel popcorn. Warning: Addicting. She also made a bunch of other delicious treats that are irresistible!

For Christmas Eve me, Nick, and the grandkids all played some Christmas songs.
The grandkids acted out the Nativity scene. Mae was Mary, Porter was Joseph, James was a shepherd, and Brooks was one of the wise men.

Isn't Brooks cute?!?!

Nick's dad carving the Turkey. (more like pulling it off the bone cuz it was so tender)

Christmas Morning

We drove up to the mountains to enjoy a day playing in the snow.

Here we are with the kids building a snow fort.

Nick's dad made us all hot chocolate with his camping stove. It was delicious!

They conquered the sledding hill!

Silly faces!



  1. Wow! Nick looks so much like his dad!!! I can't believe it! Looks like you had so much fun! :)

  2. Nice job capturing some of the fun moments at Christmas!! Miss you guys...I've been suffering from "Settler's" addiction since you two left!! Thanks for coming and sharing Christmas with us!

  3. So fun to see you celebrating Christmas! It looks like you had a great time. I'm craving caramel corn now! :) Camille has braces now so we haven't had it for a while - it is one of my favorite treats!

    Happy 2011!

  4. So what did you get from Victoria's Secret (that's right, we saw the bag in the photos)

  5. haha! I didn't get anything from Victoria's Secret. That is the box that Nick's mom put the blanket in. If I did get something from there I don't think I would open it in front of everyone.
