Christmas Catch-Up

My first Christmas to host has come and gone. I think everyone had a fun time and I was really excited people were here.

Below are some pictures from the big weekend!

My beautiful tree and the boys on our Christmas morning...

I made the Pioneer Woman's cinnamon rolls for our Christmas breakfast...


Mom and the boys with forks high about to dig in...


Later that night, Mom and I slaved over the stove making our Christmas dinner...


Tensions sometimes ran high. It felt like an episode of Hell's Kitchen!

Meanwhile, as Mom and I worked in a hot kitchen, the rest of the family lounged...


...and relaxed...


...some with sugar plums dancing in their heads...


Finally, dinner is almost done and everyone is ready to eat...


Here I am carving our giant ham...


And, one of my favorite pictures of the weekend: Aunt Kimmie and Judd...

Good pictures. I wish I could download mine. We did have fun and the boys were silly all weekend! Raymond talked non-stop, which was funny. Owen's "problems" have worked themselves out now too since we've been home. :)

That's good, Stacey. We did all have fun, Kimberly. The Hell's kitchen one is funny, but I couldn't help laughing, instead of having a mean expression. Yep, that ham was a hog!!! You sure had a house full, Kimberly, but there seemed to be plenty of room for everyone. Thanks for having the family out.
