No news is good news

Well, it's been a couple weeks since I've posted anything, and that's mainly because not much is going on! We had 4 Christmases - the first was a Christmas Eve party we had at our house for people who didn't have other plans. We had a really nice time visiting with a kind of random group of people we know.
The second was Christmas Day at Derrick's dad's. The third was the day after Christmas at Derrick's mom's, and the fourth was over New Year's when my mom and dad came to visit us. It was more of a quick gift exchange and a relaxing weekend, than a Christmas party though. I do have a few pictures...

These are from Derrick's mom's house:

Here's big D with his sister Alli and brother Kyle (Todd was AWOL)

The kids eating dinner: Alyssa, Collin, Blake, Jayna, and Sage

cousin picture!
Jayna and Collin are about 2 months apart
in the middle is Alyssa holding new baby Aiden
and then Sage and Blake are only about 7 months apart.
it's lots of fun when we get together with Kyle, Kelsey, and their kids.

our visit with Grandpa Mike and Grandpa Mary...
doing what we usually do when they're here, playing lots of table games.

Since Christmas, we've just been hanging out at home, enjoying the Wii and other new toys. We had a round of sickness last week, but everybody seems to be fine now.
We're just hanging out, enjoying each other's company.


  1. what's with everyone on their cell phones?

  2. oh yeah, i forgot about that! it was so funny, mom and dad kept pulling out their phones, as bad as Alyssa! had to take a picture.
