Rush Valley Christmas 2011

We usually have Christmas in Rush Valley on the 23rd and 24th. But it didn't work out that way this year, so we had it this last weekend. The whole family came out, and it was so great to see everyone!

Also, I forgot my good camera so these are all horrible phone pictures, but I guess some bad pictures are better than none at all :(... right?

Grandpa Dennis and Grandma Jerri, with all their grandkids ( 8 now, Wow!)

Parker, Tanner, and Layton ( I love all their "cheese" faces :)

Kim, Rio, and Karsyn (Karsyn's first Christmas!)

Devin and Sidney

Ashley and brand new baby Hadlee! This was the first I have met her and she is darling :)

Shannon, Cooper, Darrell, and Cash

Grandma Jerri and Grandpa Dennis

and then the present opening started...

Layton got a RED (his favorite color) scooter, which was perfect timing because his old one was recently run over by an unknown vehicle (ahem :)

Parker got a... umm, I guess its a bulldozer? But he loves it and you push a button and it goes forward and back and lifts the bucket up and down, and of course plays awesome music that I wish I could listen to all day :)

This is Cooper, Parker and Layton. I grew up having 4 girl cousins that were all really close to my same age, we were very best friends. It is so fun to have these 4 boys all so close together! (Well, I guess soon Cash will be right there with them, so maybe there are 5? Oh, and Tanner isn't in this picture)

Grandma and Grandpa gave all the kids pajamas (that they are all wearing them in the fist picture) some church clothes, and then each family got a wagon! They are so cute, and I have been wanting to get one forever. Good job Jerri :)

Lance's favorite part of Christmas is putting things together ;)

SUCCESS! It isn't quite finished in this picture, it has some wooden sides that are on it too. The kids just couldn't wait to take it for a little spin.

We had such a fun time with everyone. I wish we could have all stayed there for an extra day to spend more time together, but life gets in the way. Thanks so much Dennis and Jerri for making it such a nice day!

That looks so much fun. I can't believe how many little kids :) Our family is slowly growing so I am excited for that because yours looks like so much fun with both of your sides. Merry Christmas!!
