Christmas 2008

Christmas morning was great!! We woke up and picked through our newly made stockings and then we made our way to the tree. Jaron got some new snowboarding mittens, a cute little egg sized frying pan and spatula, Call of Duty 4 for his Xbox (below are before and after pictures of that) and two books by his current favorite author, Dinesh D'Souza.

In my family the 5 kids 'pick names' for Christmas, but we don't really because somehow every year I get my brother, Brigham, and he gets me. CRAZY! I really don't mind it though, I love my bro. This year he send us some of the best hot chocolate EVER, Stephen's. THANKS BRIG!!

Even though my sister, Jenni (Nini), didn't 'have me' for Christmas she still got us something. Sweet, huh!? She got us an authentic Spanish Churrera (a little thing that makes churros) and a chocolate bar to make Champorada (Mexican hot chocolate). Nini was in Bolivia for Christmas, but called in the morning to wish a Merry Christmas. Below is the Churrera and me on the phone with her. Thanks Nini!

Along with all these wonderful gifts I also got a WAY cool, new and improved backpack. I love it, but its white -- I'll get it so dirty, Chacos (outdoorsie sandals that last a lifetime), way cute scrapbooking stuff from Jaron's sister, Kristin & hubby, Brandon (somehow they always give the best gifts, Jaron and I can't figure out how they do it). We also got some gift cards from fam, Target is always good, thanks "dad-in-law" and The Pie is the best, how did you know BA?!
I love Christmas so much, but my family is so fantastic with their gifts that it makes me feel like such a flakey piece of dog poop. Thanks to all of you that love us, we love you too!
