Our Holiday Happenings!!!

The and then gone!!!

Our last day with the Milne's. They came over to visit the morning that they left...we were already missing them!!

Our day at the Festival of trees. McKennah's Dance Team did an amazing job!!

Jesse loves his aunts!!

Watching Polar Express.

Our 1st annual Polar Express Party!! The grandkids came over and they actually watched the movie!! They had some chocolate chip cookies, hot chocolate (not so much, they didn't like it), and received a jingle bell. What fun we all had.

A one and a two = 12!!!

Debbie Auger came over to decorate her room for her Birthday (for YW)
(Look Debbie...her room does look nice cleaned ;))

McKennah turns 12!! We are so excited!! She had such a fun day. We opened her presents (a razor G-stick and clothes) and then went out for her favorite food...chinese!!!

She procrastinated her birthday she ended up just having a sleepover.

Me and Jesse on Christmas Eve day. We were getting ready to take Braedon his presents...but I forgot my camera so I have no pictures of them together. I had to post this one with his silly face!!

Jesse opening his presents from Grandma after we got back, and before we went to great-grandmas annual Christmas Eve party.

This was a fun Family picture at my Moms for her annual family Christmas Eve party. We have been going there on Christmas Eve since we got married in 1991.

Morgen's Christmas Eve pajamas.

McKennah's Chrstmas Eve pajamas.

Madi's Christmas Eve pajamas.

Christmas Morning at 3:00 a.m. when I finally went to bed ;p

I actually had to go and get the girls up at 8:30. They all slept in McKennah's room. We took this picture while waiting for daddy-o.

This is the girls opening one of the family gifts all together...oh my, what could it be?

Yep, it's a Wii and Guitar Hero World Tour with lots of games and controllers. Other items Santa brought were cell phones, ipods, perfume, boardgames, boots, clothing and a new Dell computer (strange...there were no dolls or barbies this year).

Every year on Christmas Day we have the annual Bybee Christmas party at out house. This is our group family photo...excluding his parents...they are tucked away in Yuma, AZ enjoying the warm weather.

Steve pulled Averie and Jaxon behind the 4 wheeler on sleds one evening after Christmas when we were watching them. It was so cold, but they really had alot of fun!!

We had a fun New Years Eve party and John and Debbie's home. Madi played with her band the Jr. Bandit's at 11:00 p.m. They did a really great job!!

The after Midnight Limbo!!

Lots of dancing in the dark going on!!

This is Kim and Angela dancing to the YMCA in the dark...the only light was the disco ball...don't they look like they are having fun!!!

Happy New Year!!!

I love seeing your Christmas/New Year's pictures. It looked like you had a great holiday! Santa spoiled those girls this year! I loved the idea of having a Polar Express party with your grandkids. My mom just started a cousin Christmas party this year. The kids loved it. She said it will be an ongoing tradition from now on. She got all her ideas from Pres. Hinckley's wife. We're doing well here, but miss all of you and that fun neighborhood. We're the biggest party people here and we're pretty lame.

Great pictures. You seemed to capture everything. I love that. I don't do anything anymore without a camra. Now I can honestly say I keep a journal (blog) ha ha. My kids always get christmas eve jammies too but this year they all had about 3 pair each so we didn't do that tradition. Kind of sad. Is that Steve in Madi's pic. in his Jammies? ha ha
This year we did pretty well at getting to bed by midnight. Poor Stacy! 3am? What we do for our kids huh?
If I'd have known you were taking my pic. dancing I would have really got my groove on. :)
