Christmas Tacos!

When we lived in California we had a tradition of having Shannon and Pablo come for Christmas dinner, which was always Tacos and sometimes ribs. We decided that even without them we would keep up the Christmas taco tradition. But since we are living in Idaho we have to make a few adjustments. First it started snowing Christmas Eve, we woke up to about two more feet of snow. But nothing is going to stop us! So we had to shovel out the front walk so we could get in and out of the house. There's was so much snow in our driveway we had a three foot drift in front of the garage. But there is no stopping tacos. We pulled the grill out and cooked the meat. It was all worth the effort the Taco's where great! The neighbors even asked what that great smell was that came from our yard on Christmas day! Notice Michael wearing his Harley Davidson Christmas "Chef" hat.

Of course Pablo had to rub it in that it was warm and they where wearing shorts waiting for us to show up!

Christmas Day!

This year for Christmas we had all of us together except Trevor and his family. We really missed having them here with us. Christmas morning we woke up around 7 am to open gifts, maybe closer to 8 am. It's nice having older children who don't wake up as early! I had given Marissa a Tomagotchi (an electronic pet) and told the other children that I had extra, all of them wanted one except Tyler. It was pretty funny watching them all playing with their little pets. Danielle even told Jason that this was a test for being a father, if he couldn't keep his pet alive he probably wouldn't be a good father. Jason said, "You are kidding, right?"
