It's been four years since we've all been able to spend Christmas together in Beaver, UT, my mom's hometown. (She has spent every Christmas of her life in the same house...imagine that!) Mark and I weren't planning on going down, but after much begging, pleading and a few tears, Mark agreed and we decided to head down and surprise everyone. I will never forget the looks on everyone's faces when we walked in the door. Totally worth the 8 hour drive and packing our entire Christmas into the back of the suburban.
Here's the whole crew, all 33 of us.
Mark, Jason and Matt
Siblings acting like we usually do when we're together...goofy
" Strike a pose"
Pretty much my favorite people in the whole world
Opening one present on Christmas Eve
All the grandkids in new jammies
Trevor in his Neil Diamond turtleneck
Here's what Christmas for 30 looks like (this is actually just the kids, the adults opened presents after church)
Pretty much total chaos
And here's what Brady looked like the entire weekend...he wouldn't take these night vision goggles off.
Definitely a crazy, wonderful Christmas to remember.
