The Christmas Festivities

Well this post will probably be mostly a picture post. Because well, I am too lazy to try and write a synopsis of everything that has happened over christmas :P I'll add little details as I see the pictures and remember them lol.

this is me and my cute little cousin emma at the Greenwood christmas party
that was Dec. 19th it was full of festive fun...

But the most exciting present of the night, was uncle keiths perfect push up thing a ma bobs :D only because then i was thoroughly entertained watching the greenwood men/boy push up contest. below is Andrew trying them out.

Tuesday December 22nd brought LOTS of snow! So me and heather and kristin took the opportunity to build a huge snowman! this is the only pic we got before me and heather accidently knocked it over... its way taller then us! (we had to enlist Tristan's help in lifting the center of the snowman onto the bottom, it was SO heavy!)

Christmas Eve Grandma Zackrison usually comes down and stays the night with us, but because she was sick this year, we made dinner and went up to her place in salt lake for dinner and games, and of COURSE the christmas story. this is the kids before opening the annual christmas pj's.

but this is the best picture from christmas eve... me and kristin are still opening our pajamas, while everyone else has already finished and are looking anxiously on! ... well except for andrew who was so excited about his pajamas that he is already stripped down and putting them on! :D (way to catch that with the camera dad! all of us are oblivious haha)

Here is the traditional picture at the top of the stairs of the kids waiting to see if santa's come! I know by the look on shay's face that it seems like santa must've skipped our house this year, but he didn't! haha shay just woke up sick and wasn't too happy about it :P

Me opening the present i was most anticipating! (wesley's) Not that santa didn't get me awesome stuff, but Santa usually enlists my help in buying for me so wesley's package was my biggest surprise :D I was dying to know what was inside.

on top was the first 6 months worth of letters that he got and had no more room to keep! Talk about a lot of mail :P

Then was the blanket! haha when i first pulled it out i thought it was just my face, and i was gonna kill him for putting my face on a blanket! but then i saw his face too and I immediately forgave him :D the best present i got though was being able to talk to him on christmas! (big thanks to his fam for inviting me over! thank you, thank you, thank you!)

Yay! Shay's advil kicked in and she ended christmas morning in much better spirits :) Us among the disaster that our front room inevitably turns into each year :P

Well thats it for my christmas break! My fav things i got this year: talk to wes, new ipod (i can finally run with music again!), scrapbook paper, and books! The rest of the time i've been working, but I guess thats a good thing! I hope everyone had a marvelous christmas! And that ya'll have a happy new year! Feel free to stop by the wing shack if you're bored new years eve and visit me. because thats where i'll be... haha lame i know. but hopefully i'll get out of there fast enough to join in the celebrations! :)
