Our Christmas…


    We visited Ben’s maternal grandparenst in West Valley City to show off new baby Cali and wish them a Merry Christmas!


    On Christmas Eve we went to hang out with the cousins. The kids all did the nativity. We had some confused but very cute role players. Benji was Joseph and Packer is a Wise Man trying to be the donkey…

    CHRISTMAS MORNING! Superman and Batman were very entertaining. We had a great morning enjoying the holiday and our three children.

    The day after Christmas we drove to California to be with my fam 🙂 Anyone that grew up in the hood might recognize the “sour grass” that Packer is eating. The cousins introduced it to him and I’m pretty sure that is all he had for dinner that night!


    We loaded the 4 vans and treked up to Bald Rock for a day. It is beautiful up there. We hiked to the caves and did a little rock climbing and mostly chased kids to make sure noone fell off an edge!

    SUPERMANS! Packer and his cousin Payton were SAMERS – Payton is 6 months younger but they are the same size and were very cute running around in their too long pajamas.


    Rocket Launch. Benji got to launch the first rocket. You will see him running away in the last picture. People at the school thought that we were a day care or something – nope – just the Robertsons!

    New Years Eve! We went to Katies Parents house and got to hang out with some of the gang! This was my first attempt at Rockband and I was pathetic ( I don’t know what Angelee’s excuse is!)

    New Years Dinner – 9 of the 16 grandkids.


    Here are all of my parents grandkids – Liz stuck her belly in so that the picture won’t be outdated tomorrow when she has that baby!

    And here is our little angel. She didn’t get as much camera time with all of the vacation Chaos but she did get held for most of the time we were there. She doesn’t look too comfy here but she didn’t cry at all on the 11 hour trip home!


    We had a fun vacation . And played lots of games. One day I counted 8 games that I played ( puerto Rico, Zooleretto, Hand and Foot, Settlers…) and each game averages an hour to play! That is a lot of GAMING and I loved it! We had a wonderful Christmas month… we got to spend time with lots of family and friends and made it through without any illness… we were very blessed in 2008 and look forward to another great year.

    1. It looks like you had a blast in the ville. I can’t believe I wasn’t able to come up for NYE. I’m still upset about it, but c’est la vie! I’m glad you guys had a good healthy month! BTW… we need to talk about that camping trip sometime.

    2. alright Jana~low blow. Is this payback for the baby clothes comment? I’m sorry. I’ll practice and get really good for the next time you come.

    3. So for those of us not from the “hood” what is sour grass? Looks like you had a blast! I’m jealous about all the gaming you did! Happy Birthday to Cali!
