Christmas

I love Christmas. It was so. much. fun. So many fun family memories - playing lots of games, laughing, drinking good wine, opening gifts...
Garth and I talked a lot about what type of traditions we wanted to start for Christmas, but we actually only did one of those traditions, ha! And that was making a huge breakfast:
Then it was off to spend time with family. We spent Christmas morning with Garth's family. Our niece Lilly had a great Christmas! She got this awesome four wheeler:
And this super cool guitar. Isn't she a rock star?
I also enjoyed her guitar:



Garth and I:
Garth, me, his sister, and Lilly (she doesn't really like her picture taken):

After fun times, good gifts, and amazing lamb and potatoes it was off to see my family:
I caught my brother by surprise, but the picture was priceless:
Tried to catch Eric and his gf Jess by surprise but she was ready:
Brother Brad making Christmas dessert:
And Brad's other creative creations - gingerbread men. Here is batman:
