More holiday photos

It's taken me a while, but here are the pictures from my sister's visit shortly after Christmas. It was SO great to see her and her family. They are always so much fun! Miyah and my new niece, Brielle, had fun together. We planned to take the girls to have their pictures made, but as you can see Brielle was sporting a black eye. she wasn't fairing so well around the coffee table. She's so sweet! And, of course, we always enjoy time with Brittany and Brant.

My parents came a day later and we pretty stayed around the house, played games in the evening, and even went to a movie one afternoon. Puzzle addiction seems to be a family problem. The first day together a puzzle was opened and almost every family member was drawn to the kitchen table. Even Levi got in on the action and chewed a piece!

The beginning stages of Puzzle Addiction!

We had a couple of warm days so we were able to get out and walk around downtown and play at the park a bit.

This Christmas, instead of the cousins exchanging names, we did a "Favorite Things" exchange amongst all the families. Each family collected a boxful of their favorite things or items special to their area and we sent a box with photos and a letter explaining the contents to each family. What fun to get a little glimpse into the lives of each family! We got delicious recipes, music cds, snacks, games, crafts, and more.
