A Very Merry Belated Christmas...?

Have you seen that movie Four Christmas's? Me neither, but I assume that if you did, you have experienced Christmas the way Kevin and I do....every year. Ha! No but it is a whole lot of running from place to place trying to make it to see everyone and please everyone. Making sure that you spend equal amounts of time at one person's house as you did the next. Eating at every stop, and bringing in the armfuls of presents to each house. Saying your hi's, I love you's, thank you's, and then goodbye's. It's exhausting! But I wouldn't change it for anything. (I can't speak for my husband though) I didn't really take many pictures, but here are some anyway...

This was the Christmas party for my mom's side of the family. It was at my Aunt Carol and Uncle Stuart's house. We had a White Elephant exchange, and then ate some yummy food. I know in this picture everyone looks like they are having LOADS of fun, but it really was!

My brother-in-law Dan and Kyler opening Dan's white elephant....The Prince of Egypt. Nice! My step Dad's gift was even funnier, he got The Work and the Glory DVD....yeah he's baptist. We laughed so hard, of course he would open that gift. He was a good sport :)
This is at the in-law's Christmas day. There were SO many gifts!! It was so much fun to have Erik and Lisa and their boys up from St. George. Everyone was together, and it's always a good time :)

Erik and Chad looking really into the card game. I think Erik likes the Cougars, not sure though.

Watching Dylan open his gifts.

This is at my Dad's house Christmas Eve. The kids were so amped up they were dancing around and jumping off the furniture.

As displayed here....


Anywho, my Christmas in a nutshell. I know, wasn't it SO entertaining?

Ah, yes. The multiple Christmases. I hate them. I despise them. I used to think it was ok, but then we had Ava and holidays make me want to run underground and hide for cover and protection. I am anxious to hear what YOU got at Kev's family party (the one where you have to make things), so update me on that situation!

HAHAHA!! Oh I love reading your blog, you seriously are hilarious! I miss you and will be calling soon to have you teach me make up! :)

Annie, you ARE very entertaining! The only thing I can't figure out is why I wasn't invited to any of your parties! I'm pretty much the most important person in your life right now, but I understand if you don't want to make anyone else jealous so I'll forgive you.

This time.

I think it took me a whole week to get the massive amounts of presants that the boys got put away, they are so stinking spoiled. Thank you so much for letting us come and destroy your house over christmas. It was so great to have the whole family together. Now that everyone lives far apart it doesnt happen much and we miss it terribly!!

Um first of all, you little post machine!! I love white elephant gifts, almost better than real ones. As for multiple Christmas get togethers, I guess I always feel a little sad that we only have one side of the fam to visit. Not really because it makes things less chaotic, but that in itself makes the holidays a little bitter sweet. Either way it is a love/hate relationship!
