Christmas morning the kids woke up and saw what Santa brought. Ashlee was very excited to get her princess bike.(she'd been telling everyone thats what she wanted for months). The kids then went through their stockings and then it was time to hurry out for 9 oclock church.

After church we opened's Ash and JJ with their gifts.

Bryson didnt care about the gifts...all he wanted was all the chocolate. That's my boy!

Later that day my side of the family came up for dinner. Heres some of the cousins exchanging gifts. JJ got 2 new shorts, Ash got a Dora tent and Braden bouncy balls.

Havasu Festival of Lights

The first weekend in December Lake Havasu has a festival of lights on the lake. Some of those boats were really decked out. It was fun we ate Subway sandwiches as we watched the boats parade around. The only down side was how cold is was. Usually Havasu is so hot that we did not expect it to be cold . The kids were freezing so we bundled everyone up.
