This year for Christmas we were able to be with both of our families on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day! We started our festivities off with getting our traditional pedicure the morning of Christmas Eve with Bret's parents! (unfortunately I didn't get a picture this year) I think that is one of my new favorite tradtions. Later that day we were able to spend time with the Pierce side before heading to my parents for our Christmas Eve party. This is another one of my favorite traditions. It used to be held at my Grandma Pulley's but we are running out of room there so my parents offered to have it at their house. We eat a yummy dinner, sing a few songs, and then all of the kids get to open their new Christmas PJ's. I love traditions!SISTERS-Hadlee, Peyton and Taylor
The cutest nieces and nephew-we need a few more boys so Parker isn't so out numbered!

Almost all of Grandma Pulley's great grandkids! It's so hard to get all of them looking at the same time-they are still super cute!
Thank you Grandma for starting such a wonderful tradition that we all love! We hope it will continue for many more years!

We were able to run over to my parents for a few minutes before heading to the Pierce's for breakfast. Shay helping all the kids with their surprises from Grandma and Grandpa. I love being at our parents houses and getting to watch the kids open their gifts. They are much more exciting then Bret and I.
Parker got a little wagon with blocks in it-I think ridding in it looks more fun too! He is such a happy fun loving little boy!

Anxiously awaiting for everyone to finish up breakfast so we could head down stairs.
Michelle, Nick, Brynlee, Maddie, Me and Grandma Lucy
I love Grandma Lucy!
We have the sweetest, cutest grandma out there!
Before heading down stairs we enjoyed one of my favorite things for breakfast-bisquits and gravy! It is usually something we only have while camping so it was a nice surprise for Christmas breakfast. Before going down stairs it is a tradition to have a family prayer so we don't forget the true meaning of Christmas. Our six year old niece said it-I don't think there is anything sweeter then listening to a child pray. Thank you Maddie for helping us remember the TRUE meaning of Christmas with your prayer. Another tradition I love and hope Bret and I can carry on with our family.

We were both very spoiled this year and we are so grateful to our parents for taking such good care of us. Thank you for all that you did-it was way to much. We had a fun holiday season spending time with family, eating yummy food and enjoying some of our favorite tradtions! We hope you all did the same!
