Christmas 2010

Every year Christmas gets better with little grand children who are now old enough to look forward to excitement of the holidays...not to mention Grandma and David who look forward to their coming.  We know how hard it is to pack up the kids and come all the way to Utah.  Amy and Brian come from Washington DC.  Travis and Sara come from NYC and Sally and Willie come from Colorado. Liz and Kelley come from St. Anthony ID and Greg and Jamie come from Sandy.  We know they all can't come all of the time but when they do it is so appreciated and fun.  Calder and Starr live near us in Midway but  this year they spent the holiday in warm Mexico.  Greg and Jamie opted for the CA beach.

Ready and waiting:

Following are some of the highlights of our time together.

 Riding the Reindeer (tu tu added)
