Christmas Time Activities

We spent the weekend before Christmas in Nampa to attend Grandma Robertson's Christmas party and Uncle Jordan's farewell.

Here are each of our kids with Santa at the party. It appears that Santa has Colt in a choke hold....?. We didn't put Bristol on his lap and I'm not sure why we didn't- would have been fun to have a picture.

We ate pizza, salad and desserts and then played a gift exchange game for the adults and one for the kids. I had to sabotage the kids game so that Colt could get the gift he wanted (the one we brought). It was a Lightening McQueen car and he was convinced that he would "Run so fast and win!" His face was priceless when he opened it.

The following day was Jordan's farewell. We got some pictures with him and our family so we could do a 'before and after'. He gave a great talk and musical number as well. He is now serving in Perth, Australia. Colt is very excited for when he can be a missionary too. He puts on his suit, grabs his scriptures and tells us to take him on his mission.

After the farewell we had a luncheon at Shane and Kim's. We took a ton of pictures. It had been a while since all the brothers and sisters were together so we took full advantage.

We didn't get one with EVERYBODY....I doubt you could catch us all in one photo. :) We had a fun time but then had to say goodbye to Jordan, which wasn't any fun. We miss him but we know he is a great missionary and is doing what he should be doing. Can't wait to see him again!
