I can't believe it's New Year's Eve already! I've really been lazy between Christmas and now! So be prepared for a few posts today, so I can get caught up before 2011 begins.
We spent Christmas with Joe's family in Portland. It was a nice relaxing weekend with family.
On Christmas Eve, we invited our friends over so we could give gifts to their kids. One of their little girls, Marleigh, was the flower girl at our wedding. We were really happy to see them during the holiday, even though everyone was so busy.
Marleigh and McKenna
Zander as the center of attention. :)
Zander opening his gift - a dump truck. (Joe almost kept it for himself he liked playing with it so much. I suppose all men are just big boys at heart, huh?)
Marleigh and me.
After we visited with them for a bit, it was time to head over to Joe's sister and brother-in-law's house for Christmas Eve dinner. This is one of the things that Joe has missed the most since we moved away - his brother-in-law's cooking!
Cindy and Shane with the famous prime rib.

After dinner it was time to open gifts. Everyone was very sweet and generous and we were gifted a lot of great things.
Me and my husband. :)
Sam, Dalton, and Zach opening the last of their gifts. (Look at that mess behind them!)
Cindy with her fur-nephew. Doesn't Jackson look so happy?
It was a great night and I have to say, I'm pretty lucky to have this family as my in-laws. :)
