November and December happenings

On November 7th, my Grandpa Eynon passed away. Although it was sad, it was also time for him to go. He was 92 yrs. and had lived a long and productive life.   Even when my family  meets up for a sad event, we have such a good time together. All of my brothers and sisters and their families were in California for the funeral. This couldn't have made my dad any happier!

My youngest brother Adam and his family....wait those are his nieces and nephews (his woman wasn't able to be there) We missed you Ali!
The funeral was nice and my dad did a great job with the eulogy. After the luncheon, we all went to my sister Shayne's house and hung out. I love these people!!!

We were hopping in December going to Christmas parties and programs. We went Christmas caroling with a bunch of friends from our ward....

Bella had so much fun singing

We went to the strip and checked out the Bellagio decorations and water show...









Who knew Santa hung out on the Strip? The kids were a little weirded out by him!

Then Christmas day we stayed home and had so much fun...

Austin got a new scooter (you don't think Kyle's tired do you?)


Carson got one too


Kyle's ready to go play for the Dodgers


Bella got a bike


Hailee got a cell phone

We had such a fun Christmas vacation. We did absolutely nothing! I think we watched Napoleon Dynamite a dozen times and stayed up late every night. Kyle even took a whole week off of work! He never does that!
Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!

Thankmas 09

In my brother in law's family, they have a tradition that every other year for Thanksgiving, the whole family get's together and celebrates Thanksgiving and Christmas and call it Thankmas. It's pretty much a week long event filled with all kinds of activities and traditions. This year, Mike and Lindsay weren't coming this way for Thanksgiving so they invited us to Colorado for their own Thankmas.  That is the longest drive ever!!! But I have to say it was worth it. We had a great time. Mike and Kyle pretty much planted themselves in the "man cave" (basement) for three days watching football, and graced us with their presence upstairs when they were hungry.  They did step it up though and took the kids on a hike while Lindsay and I got dinner ready. They also let us go see New Moon (again) which was even better the second time. Who knew I was going to be such a Jacob fan? It was so much fun and I wish Team Millward lived closer so we could see them more. Maybe we should just move to Colorado? Love it there!!!

Isn't my sister a hottie?
