Christmas Time 2011...

Holiday's are always crazy busy for us going back and forth between families...we love it, but it always makes for an exciting busy time! This Christmas was no different! We had so much fun and as the little ones get older it is seriously that much more joyous! We were spoiled rotten by family and are so thankful for them and the season!

Holiday in review with pics...

Christmas morning! Crazy Hair....

So excited!

Just what she wanted! Cupcake literally had been asking for an Olivia house for Christmas for over a month and would tell everyone should could, and me about 50 million times, I love it! She was thrilledHer new snow coat! Both kids got all new snow clothes..she wanted to make snow angels not looking too promising this year!

This was a last minute gift idea and I am so glad Santa brought was a hit! All we heard was weeeee all day long!

Santa, Gingerbread Houses, and Mistletoe Oh My!!!

Like I said in the post before we had a festive December and Christmas...Here are more pictures documenting all the fun!

The annual cousins pic with Santa! This year almost doubled in number from last year!

Hunter, Monkey, Connor, Denver, Cupcake, and Ryder (oh and Mal) Ryder wanted nothing to do with Santa! We were also missing a few cousins (Maddie, Georgia, and Izzi).Monkey and Cupcake with the Santa at our ward party...He was telling Santa quite the story! But he was not in the least bit scared... Cupcake hopped up told Santa what she wanted before he could even blink...

Gingerbread houses at Grandpa and Grandma Walkers...Daddy helping Cupcake with her mini house!

All Done!

Mommy and Monkey

Jenna, Annie, Monkey, Me, and Jason (photo-bombing)

Our joined house was a wipe out obstacle course...I didn't get a pic of the rest of the houses but there was a surf shack which was AMAZING with a wave and surfer included, a Sundance Ski Lodge, and a Ski Lift...we don't do traditional houses at the Walkers.

This little number was my attempt and epic fail at a Nativity when we did houses with The Bryners and the other Millers...

Barb being very serious about her house...

Maddie posing while working!

Me being bored cause I didn't try very hard and the girls were all still working and I was just waiting...

And what better way to pass the time than stealing a little smooch under the Mistletoe!

Finally done and ready for a pic! Gotta love Dan and Maddie's cute tree!

The Best Way To Spread Christmas Cheer Is Singing Loud For All To Hear!

We had such an exciting, fun, crazy Christmas and I thought before I posted all the madness I should post about a few things that we did leading up to it! Cupcake had her first Preschool Christmas performance which was so cute and a little crammed with all the parents and Grandparents in Miss Misti's house! Also my darling singing groups, Vivid Vocals, had the opportunity to perform their Christmas show a few times! They were darling and did such an amazing job!

Daddy, Monkey, Cupcake, and Me
Grandma Patti came to watch!! Grandma came a little late and when she walked in of course cupcake was so excited and couldn't contain herself and kept shouting "Hi Grandma!" and waving! So so cute!

Waiting patiently for her turn... I was up on a chair taking pics an recording...see what I mean by pretty crammed!

My Darling little Tiny Tunes...they did so amazing! Aren't they just the cutest things ever!?!

Another shot of another show...I am missing the pic of my older girls that also performed...I will post it when I get it from one of their cute Mom's (my camera had died)

More Festivities to come...

The girlies...with the bride

So I wanted a pic with my fam and the Newlyweds but Cupcake was too busy dancing and playing and Daddy and Monkey went home early due to a grumpy little I did it by myself!

So after all the fun was had we all grabbed ribbon streamers and watched the couple walk through them and head off to Paris! Such a great day!
