Warning long post!!!!-Christmas fun!!

Okay so I am finally getting around to blogging about what we did over the Christmas holiday :) The Thursday before Christmas my side of the family got together at my house for dinner and gifts and all that. My present to the family was making dinner. I got them all a little something, but my main present was making the dinner. My dad and his girlfriend and her family came over and so did my sisters and their families and of course my brother. I was really fun. Most of them all slept over because everyone drank and there was to be no drunk driving!!! Here are the girls playing dress up! They love to have fun together.
As you can imagine when we drink we like to sing. Well one of our favorite christmas songs is please daddy by john denver and o can us stoker girls sing when we get a little alcohol in our system. There is a video, but I hope that it is never released to the public..............yes it is that bad. :)
Dusty surprised me big time this year!! I lost my wedding ring 2 years ago and Dustys mom gave us hers to replace it. We had to get it sized and fixed and so it was in the jeweler and wasn't going to be able to come out till the middle of January because we couldn't afford it till then. Well he was able to get the money to pay for it because of a bonus from work and some help from my awesome sister Kim. So he gave me my present in a big square box. It looked nothing like a ring box at all, so I assumed it wasn't that. Well he had wrapped it in a bigger box. It was so awesome. I cried.

This is the awesome dinner I made. We had rolls, potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, homemade stuffing, ham and a crazy good pretzel jello dessert!

Here is me and my sista Shelly enjoying the night!
The next day my awesome sister took us all up to soilder hollow to go tubing. Can I just say that that is the only way to tube!!! They have these big hills that are crazy fun to go down and they haul you up the hill so you don't have to do any walking!! It was great!!!! The boys especially had when I say boys I mean the men. They were spinning and racing and just being like little kids!!! It was AWESOME!!! Jordyn got cold towards the end, but we all had a great time!
My dad even got into it!! I have to say it was awesome seeing my dad tubing. I don't remember from when I was little, but he was like a kid in a candy store. As soon as he was down he would run right back in line to go again.
Here I am just chillin letting the tube run take me up the hill. I thought that was the coolest thing in the world. Why walk can you can be hauled up???

Here is Jordyn all bundled up with my scarf and stuff. This was right before she started crying and I had to take her to the lodge to get warm
I hardly saw Ryan the entire time. Him and Garrett were just like grandpa, as soon as they were down the hill they would get up and run to the line again!

Here are Shelly and Garrett. It was good to see my sister having fun sledding. We usually will sit it out cause going up the hill sucks, but there you don't have to :)
Me and Dusty went down together once!
Kim in her awesome hat! I totally want a pig tail snow hat!!!

The rest of the crew-Clint, Brooke, Bailey, Natalie, Jason, Andy and my dad!
Andy and my dad standing in line-Andy you are such a goof ball!!

The next day was christmas and to my surprise my kids did not wake me up at the butt crack of dawn. In fact we only woke up because someone called the house and it woke us up! The kids were super excited about all their presents. They both loved their pillow pets and the"MEN" loved ryans new Kinect set. They dug right in and started building a helicopter!
Ryan opening his Kinect set!

Jordyn and her new Cootie game. She loves playing this at grandmas, so "Santa" decided she needed one of her own at our house!
