Portland with the Lee's

Caitlin and Jared came to visit a week after the new year.  My parents drove them here and then they flew home to Hawaii.  They were only here for a day but it was fun.  Jared wanted to see Portland and you can't get a much better tour guide then Benson.  That is if you want a police officer's perspective of the city.  We had fun driving around and seeing different things.  Jared wanted to see some of the landmarks he had seen on Portlandia.

 While Grandma was in town she caught up on some sewing projects I had for her.  Also, somehow she was wrangled into making little pillows for most of the grandkids.  Brooklyn started it so it is all her fault!

Utah trip

We went to Utah for Christmas this year.  We left Christmas Eve in the morning hours so we got into Utah late Christmas Eve night.  We had Christmas with the kids before we left but Santa brought their present from him to Utah.  Plus they got all sorts of presents from family. 

Every time I go to Utah I get frustrated with myself because I don't take very many pictures.  So I made up for it this time.  I had so many pictures I wanted to post that I had to do them in collages.

This first collage is from Christmas day at my parents house.

On the Monday after Christmas we had a party with the Weinberger clan.  We had a lot of fun seeing everybody.  I think someone spiked Benson's Diet Pepsi because he was so goofy! 

These pictures are just random pictures while we were at my parents home.  It was really good to see Brooke, Steven, Dylan, Sydnee, Cohen, Caitlin, and Jared.  We hadn't seen them in just over 2 years.  So we had some fun hang out time.  It was so much fun to spend time with them.  Brooklyn and Sydnee gave pedicures to whoever wanted one.  Although they were annoyed when their brothers wanted them so they swapped and neither had to do their own brother.

These pictures are from my phone.  They are horrible quality but I didn't want to miss putting these on here.  Thanks to Aunt Carla we had a fun time at Boondocks.  We played video games, drove go carts, played Laser Tag, and went miniature golfing.  We also went to Leatherby's that night and Jer, Ry, and I shared a yummy ice cream.  The kids also had fun having movie nights!
Thanks for all the fun everyone!  Hopefully we get to do it all again soon!

The Nutcracker

For our ward Christmas party this year they had all the primary children perform The Nutcracker.  It was really cute and really fun to see the kids perform.  They also loved doing it.

Jeremy was a mouse.  He is right in the middle in this picture.

Brooklyn was a snowflake.  She did a great job.

Our Christmas

We did our family Christmas a day early since we were going to Utah for the holidays.  The kids got to open one present Christmas "Eve" which is their pajamas.
