Christmas Day 2008

Christmas day was mild-Jeff and I slept in! Everyone came over at noon and ripped open presents and then left! That's pretty much it in a nutshell. We did have a great day...I thought it was very special because I got to talk to my brother on his mission! Here are some pictures of our fun Christmas Day! Brody got a Baby Furr Real tiger from Santa-he gets to feed it a bottle, which he loves

Loving the presents, candy, and fun

Finally, I get to hold one of the twins-Brooklyn Belle

This picture is pretty funny-Jeff's dad truing to take pictures of everyone on the little, itty, bitty chair

Everyone just doing the Christmas thing

We all got gumball machines this year! So much fun.

Kristen and Karis looking so cute with funny faced Scott

Christmas Fun

We started the parties at the annual Manning Family Christmas gathering. We had a ham dinner followed by a talent show. All of the brothers and sisters and the spouses did a skit where we jumped and danced around the stage. It wasn't great to look at, but it was sure fun to do. I wish I had video of it because it was pretty pathetically funny. Jeff's siblings-Scott and Heather

Brody, dad, mom, and the famous bottle stuck in Brody's mouth

Brody with Santa-hey, thanks Santa for bringing my kid a ball and the LOUDEST kadzoo ever!
We then did Christmas Eve at the Rogers' family annual party. Mexican food and great desserts!

Holly, cousin Tracy (who just got engaged!), and Megan-they are all so pretty

We have a live nativity acted out with the unmarried kids in the family-Mattea doing her best Mary impression.
We had a great time hanging out with cousins, Aunts, and Uncles!

Christmas Ride

Katie and Layne Peterson were nice enough to invite us for a Christmas hay ride for Family Home Evening last Monday night. They took us around their neighborhood looking at the lights and singing Christmas songs. Alot of people in their neighborhood put up Christmas lights, so it was a blast for the kids to see the lights as they rode on the hay. The Jobe family and Prices came with us and really had a great time. Thanks Petersons!

I have SO many pictures to post and cannot find them on my computer. Jeff's sister Holly has her twins last week...Kristen Rogers (sister-in-law) had her baby very early last week as well. All three babies are doing great and we cannot wait for things to settle down so that they can get stronger and hold them! I will put them up as soon as I find them because the new baby girls are SO cute.
