Our Trip

We had a lot of fun on our trip to Washington and instead of writing about it all I'll just share a fraction of the pictures!!
Emma and My Dad
Madison, Charlie, Joy( Tara's oldest)and Jenna on the bottom
(he was so excited about all the snow we got!! As was I till we had to drive home in it!!)
Joy, Madison, Wyatt, and Dayton
Brigham, Paul, Joy, Dayton, Madison, and Wyatt
(Dallyn was covering them with the blanket and lifting it up to lots of laughter!!)
Me, the girls, my Mom and Santa
( I almost thought we weren't going to see him but we made it, he was the best Santa ever!)
Emma and my Mom
(I think from this picture no one can dispute she looks like a Schmidtlein)
Madison and her big muscles
(Leith just loves to pose!!)
Leith and Emma
The girls and I just loved being around all our family but I have to say after our three day trip home ( which we made in one on the way up) we were very HAPPY to be home and with Brad!!

Christmas Cards

This year we only bought so many cards for Christmas and fortunately for us we have A LOT of family, but that makes it hard with sending out Christmas Cards to EVERYONE!! So those of you who didn't get one here it is!! SORRY!! Hopefully we'll get you next year!!

Merry Christmas!!!

So we are back, finally, but I will post on that later! I just wanted to tell everyone Merry Christmas!! It doesn't quite feel like Christmas Eve since Brad is working today and I just got back from my parents (which normally I would be there this year, but couldn't) So I'm trying!! Madison and I are going to make cookies for Santa, she is really catching on this year and its really cute!! She wanted to leave to Walmart right after we watched "Santa Clause is Coming to Town" so we could make cookies. I convinced her that we all had to eat, shower, and get ready and then we would go. I even dressed Emma up for today!! Then tonight we are going caroling with Brad's family and then coming back to our house for food and games. Hopefully Brad will get off early and then I can get in the Christmas mood!! I hope everyone has a great Christmas!!!

Well we've now been in Washington for a week and a bit and it HAS been eventful!! Between Brya's family and mine we have had strep, the flu, and ear infections. Then to top it off Jenna got second to third degree burns on both of her hands. Which has ended in daily trips to the hospital for Brya and Jenna. So over all EVENTFUL!!!!!
But of coarse its still been fun to see all the family!! Hopefully it will be a lot more dull in the next week and a half!!!
