The "Griswolds" Family Christmas!

This year we had Christmas with my family the weekend before Christmas.  It always seems like such a quick trip.  We got there Friday night, had Christmas Saturday and left Sunday Morning. 
My Sister and her husband decided to go with a tiny tree this year, but we made do :)

 O.k. so in no real order.......

For Lunch my Mom wanted to have Sloppy Joes.  As usual, they weren't being prepared to Greg's satisfaction, so as expected, he took over.

 I attempted to take a picture of the three older kids with Giselle, but as you can see it didn't exactly work out.  Somehow, Corbyn, Colton and Giselle were looking in three different directions and not one of those directions were at me.....Bailey is looking at the back of Conner's head because right before I took the picture he decided to be a photo bomber :)  At least he's a cute photo bomber!

 When it came time to open presents, Kinley wanted no part of it and rebelled by stripping off her clothes.  It's one of her things she does when she gets mad! I really don't understand this child and her actions a lot of the time, but she is who she is and I love her to pieces....weird quirks and all!

My nephew Conner on the other hand is as sweet as they come.  Here he is trying out his new ride.

I'm happy to say that I will never again have to hear, "I REALLY HOPE SOMEONE GETS ME A RAINBOW LOOM FOR CHRISTMAS!" 

 There are really no words.

As you can see, we got a pretty cute picture of my Mom and Dad with all of their Grandkids.  Kinley usually tries to make sure this doesn't happen.  I pretty much forced her into this picture. (Did you notice she's a tad bit taller than the rest of the kids)  I was holding her up and tickling her all while trying to keep my face hidden.  I guess you could say I'm a multi tasker!  Side note:  Greg has always called my family "The Griswolds", so when we saw these shirts we had to have them.  This is the one time of the year that I FORCE Greg to wear something he doesn't want to.  I may or may not have tried to guilt him into it by reminding him that my Mom had spent good money on these shirts and he was going to wear it!  He's not exactly a "I want to match everyone in the Family" kind of guy.   

Bailey and the Sweetest Dog on EARTH!!!!  I kind of feel bad calling her a dog because she thinks she human and pretty much acts like she is too.

Teri and Jeri

Conner, his finger and his finger's favorite resting spot.

Kinley eventually let me put clothes back on her and my Dad eased his way towards her so I could try and get a picture.  This will just have to do.  I didn't want to push it by actually asking her to look at me and smile. 

Greg thought he was being clever by pretending to watch TV when he was actually napping.  I knew when he pulled up that high chair and his feet went up that it wouldn't be long.  Of course the snoring gave it away too :)  His bald head looks so weird from this angle.  I should have at least drawn a smiley face or a target on it or something.

We spent the whole day just hanging out, trying to make bracelets with Bailey's new rainbow loom (which by the way is a lot harder than I expected), playing games, watching TV and eating.....and in Greg's case napping! 

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!!!!
