Merry Christmas!

(I started this post on Christmas, I just didn't know that it didn't publish)

HOHOHO! Merry Christmas.  We survived yet another "end of the world." Congrats.  It is now Christmas!

It has been a great day, a day well spent with Family and loved ones.

First, we woke up bright and early, (okay, I woke up at 6:30, and Keith woke up at 7:00)  He's not really a morning person.

Then we unwrapped one present from each other before we went to Keith's parent's house.

Mazee got to unwrap two of hers, cause I'm impatient and she was looking at me with her puppy eyes.  She's hard to resist.  We got her a dogzilla durable bone (because it was the only toy we could find that didn't squeak! (we hate squeekey toys!!!) )  and a regular raw hide chicken flavored bone.  The other present she got to tear open was her new glitzy collar.  She really is our little princess, and she knows it too.

The present that I opened from Keith was a GREAT one!  It was exactly what I was hoping for!!! THE 50 SHADES Trilogy!!! By E.L. James.  I am sooo excited to read them... if you don't see me in the next 3 days, I am reading my books, don't bother me ;)

Then we went to Keith's parents house, it was so fun for all of us to be together opening presents!  Keith's parents gave us an excellent gift, a laundry hamper that is on wheels, has 3 seperate compartments for "whites" "darks" and "pants"  Best thing ever!  I was so psyched to set it up and put my dirty clothes in it.  :)


After that we went to lunch in Gunnison to Keith's Aunt and Uncles house, that was fun! We ate some yummy food, and watched "Grumpy Old Men." It was really funny!

Next we came home. We put together most of the puzzle I bought for Keith. (It's a four season's picture) I will post a picture when it is finished.  We waited until Kayden and Jill got home from Tooele to open presents at my parent's house.  FINALLY at about 3:30 we got a phone call from Mom, they were home. We hurried down and got to opening.  I love giving gifts for Christmas, more than I like receiving them..

This year for Christmas, all of us were keeping a HUGE secret!  My Mom's family came up with a genius idea, in March of 2013, my parents will celebrate their 40th Wedding Anniversary.  We all wanted to do something special so my Uncle came up with the GREAT idea to send them on a cruise to Hawaii, if any of you know my mom, she has ALWAYS wanted to go to Hawaii.

I put together a book, based on Dr. Seuss' book "Oh The Places You'll Go" and changed the words so that it hinted at Hawaii.



Then we put together a package of Hawaiian stuff.  It was the greatest gift ever.  When Mom opened it she just cried and cried and cried.  It was so special!

We recorded their reaction.  You'll have to turn the volume all the way up.  My mom was reading too quiet, and there was a lot of crying.
  Turn it up, you won't wanna miss this!

They are so excited :)  I am so excited for them :)


We spent the evening playing games with my brother and SIL, it was so fun.  There are FINALLY enough of us to play games (Mom and Dad are Bah-Humbug's when it comes to game night, plus, Dad is a cheater!!!)  We played a few new ones we got for Christmas, HeadBandz (Disney Edition) and Fibber. It was fun to laugh and play with my siblings :)

Kayden and Jill were Minnie and Mickey (CUTE)

All in all, it was a marvelous Christmas.
In the words of the much beloved Tiny Tim:

May God Bless You, Every One
