OuR 2nD cHrIsTmAs

Wow I can't even believe that this is already Mine and Ty's second Christmas married. I absolutely love this time of year and we were so blessed with all the time off our jobs gave both of us. Sorry for the picture overload but it was hard to leave certain ones out. So I hope you all enjoy.
There is a tradition in both mine and Ty's families of getting an ornament every year. So we started to buy each other an ornament that pertains to that year. We were pretty creative this year. Ty got me a slot machine because this year on our anniversary in Vegas was my first time gambling. :) and I gave Ty a motorcycle because he wants one so bad and itis all he talks about but we can't afford one yet so I got him this motorcycle for Christmas. See honey I do care and I do take your love for motorcycles seriously hehe.

This is our nephew Parker at the ward Christmas party. Santa was of course the surprise guest and to all of our surprise Parker wasn't affraid of him. We think its because Santa gave him a candycane. The Candycane didn't sell most of the kids though I think more kids were crying then smiling. They are scared of him but they don't mind him coming into there homes and leaving presents. ha. Silly kids.
I was scheduled to work Christmas eve so I went in at 8:00 am dreading it the whole way there. Well I got there and everyone was just so cheery I couldn't help but be happy. Well then 10:00 rolls around and my manager comes to me and says I want you to get to your family safe and I am worried about the weather so you can leave. Oh my goodness. I was so excited I got to leave work 4 hours early which was great because then we would be able to get to my family's house even earlier. My sister, Brother in Law and their two kids came to visit from Canada so I couldn't wait to see them and everyone else. We left Cedar City at about 1:00 and got to syracuse at 5:00, 2 hours earlier then we had planned!

Congratulations on the racquetball gear--best sport in the world! And those tiles are disgusting. I'm glad you'll be able to hold on to one forever and ever. :)
