Merry Christmas Everyone!


<-- Our Christmas tree... We went with a santa theme if you couldn't tell...
I hope you all had a very enjoyable Christmas Holiday this year! I must say that The Westover Fam had a great one! Christmas Eve was a wonderful feast as usual. We went over to my parents house and had our traditional Seafood feast. We had King Crab, Coconut shrimp (my favorite part yummy!) and steak. My parents did a wonderful job putting it together as usual! We had a few added guests this year that made it extra fun. We had my adopted (kind of) sister Jen and her husband Doug and their darling little boy Dresden over they live in Montana. My grandma and grandpa Anderson and My uncle Brett were also able to join. It was so dang fun and the food was so delicious! Before dinner the girls in the family made yummy candy plates with caramels, nut balls, oreo candies, cherry cordial bars and toffee. Jen also brought some amazing Chocolate dipped macadamia nuts from their trip to Hawaii! Everything turned out perfect! While the girls made candy, the boys played X-box at Dallans house in willard...


Brian Let me buy this picture of baby Jesus as part of My Christmas Gifts! I LOVE IT!

Christmas day was just as packed as ever! We started the day off at about midnight opening Brian and I's gifts to each other. He got new snowmobile clothes, the Super Nintendo game Paper Boy and some tools. I got a shopping spree at Maurices.. My favorite store ever.. some awesome perfume, the movie happy feet, the 4th twilight book and the cutest thing ever. It's Vinyl lettering that says BABY - Tiny hands to love and hold, a tiny life to shape and mold. It is so dang cute! So after we opened gifts Brian and our pal Goose went and played paperboy untill all hours of the night and I went to bed. At 8:30 the next morning we went to my parents house and opened gifts. One of my great memories was my little brother Brad. He's 13 years old and he LOVES giving gifts! Before he opens any of the gifts for him he hands out all of the ones he got for everyone else. He is so dang cute! He gets so dang excited to see if you like the presents he picked out! He got me pajama pants with panguins with slippers, and Brian Work socks. What a cutie! We recieved a ton of awesome gifts from our family including new games and new sleeping bags! Thanks Fam! Doug, Jen and Dresden were also there to spend the morning with us. After my parents house we went to Brians Grandma Westovers house and had breakfast. It was so nice to see her and that side of the family. Then we went to Brians Uncle Gregs house and had lunch. It seemed the gifts would never stop flowing! Everyone on the Nielsen side seems to be doing well, we had some nice chats and some good times! Then one of the greatest things followed a CHRISTMAS NAP! We totally zonked out for like 3 hours and woke up refreshed! Guess what followed our nap... MORE FOOD! Isn't that what Christmas is all about! We went out to Dallan and Heathers house and had Honey Baked ham that Brians company gave him and funeral potatoes. We were going to watch a movie as a family but we were about to get snowed in... It was a blizzard! So we made our way home. What a Christmas!
