Christmas 2008

We had a great Christmas Holiday. Admittedly, it was a little lonely at first. But shortly after the Christmas festivities Ashley & Mike arrived and then James & Erin arrived on New Years. Hurray! I love when my home is filled with my children. We enjoyed staying up late, playing tennis, eating out, going to the movies, playing games, etc...

Jaren and Michelle were excited to find keys to a car in their Christmas stockings! It will be great to have a third car they can share. Jaren will turn 16 in Feb. Michelle will have to save her keys for a couple more years. : ) We missed Justin, Marin and this adorable little Santa elf!

We had lots of fun on our horsback ride and cowboy steak dinner with Grandma & Grandpa Litta. We were so glad that it worked out that the big kids could be here and come with us. The more the merrier! Gma & Gpa always do such fun activities. We sure appreciate all the fun things we've done over the years.

Beach 2006

A Family Favorite ~ The Beach!

Here we are in Newport CA. We had lots of fun with everyone. Boogieboarding, building sandcastles, swimming with dolphins, deep sea fishing, and sun tanning. Life doesn't get much better than that.

I wish you could see better ~ the boys all inserted those big, ugly, rotten, fake teeth. It looked so funny. They were hilarious.

Wow! Look at her fingers go!

We are so thankful to have such wonderful and talented kids.
