The Reason for the Season

I'd like to pay tribute to Flem's latest post. Beautiful picture--brings back such fond memories. Cris and I were married in the Salt Lake Temple and we're grateful for all that it means to us. We celebrate the birth of Christ at this time of year in many ways. It's a beautiful thing. . .all the lights, the decorations, the giving of gifts to loved ones, the music, remembering those in need in some way---make your own list. We enjoyed our Christmas sooooo much. Here's why:

Nick, Bella and Tasha came to visit. Score!!! Zhu Zhu pets!! Three days after Christmas Toys R Us got in a new shipment. We then had to make little pillows and blankets for our new babies.

Christmas dinner--just some of our peeps.

The prime rib roast before going in to the oven. Forgot to take a pictures after in came out but it was AWESOME.

Cris and I went house hopping Christmas morning sharing gifts and watching children's faces. Oh look!! Memzy got new knives!

Shed is impressed with his new iPhone car charger.

Memzy made us a "travel quilt" with embroidered patches of our travels. LOVE IT!

Riles and his new Wii game.

Jack got one too.

Camcorder. Skype, Skype, Skype. Excited.

Charlie yuvs his trio building set.
Clara loves FP Little People so gramma stalked eBay. Lost 4 bids--won 2.

Owen LOVES Legos
Liesl is very happy with another new Webkins.
And My Pretty Ponies
A Christmas angel.
Good times, good times. Thanks to our children, their spouses and our grand kids for making our life so full of joy.

WOW!! What a fun Christmas! The "Parks family caramels" are becoming a staple in our Christmas diet. Kirk and Jon could not get enough of the them.
