Crazy Christmas!!

I love Christmas! I know it is a ton of stress, a lot of money and it takes a lot of time but it is truly my favorite time of the year. We had a wonderful Christmas and are just so blessed. The Sunday before Christmas we had Kelly's family over for dinner and opened presents. It is always great to get everyone together. Then on Christmas eve my family all got together and attempted to get a family picture taken of all of us it was a little crazy but it turned out okay. That night the Tippets family always has a big family dinner which is fun, all of the great-grandkids put on a nativity which is a wonderful tradition and then Santa comes and gives the kids a gift. It was so much fun! On Christmas day we made a big breakfast at our house and then visited some family. My Sisters got Wii games and Guitar hero so we had a blast playing video games together. And the day after Christmas we had round two. All of my siblings got together at my dad's house to do a gift exchange and then had a huge sleepover. 16 people in all! It was a bit crowded but so worth it. Overall it was a crazy, busy, chaotic, and fabulous Christmas season.

Bop It Extreme

I don't know if you know what a Bop It is, but if you don't your lucky. It's a timed game where you have to bop it, twist it, pull it or whatever it says as fast as you can before it times out. We got this stupid toy when we first got married almost 9 years ago and use to play it all the time, we actually had to put tape over the speaker because we were worried it would wake the people in the apartment below us when we were playing at 2 in the morning. Well I cleaned out the hall closet yesterday and found it (this closet was were old things went to get lost and die!). Well Kelly and I started playing it and wasted almost the entire night trying to beat each others score. Needless to say I won!!!! But I think we are both losers considering we are now addicted to a stupid toy! Although I have to say it is nice that we are both so easily entertained =)

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We had a really good time. On Wednesday we had Colby and Bradley over to make Muddy Buddy Snacks, we are always glad to get to spent time with those cute boys. We spent early on Thanksgiving day at home setting up our Christmas Tree and decorations and then went to North Salt Lake to have a Thanksgiving dinner with the Tippets side of the family. Friday the Tippets Girls (Me, my sisters Jori, Shanae, and Misty and my Sister-in-law Bethany) all braved the crowds for black Friday shopping. It was crazy but we got some really good deals. And Saturday we went to Chuck-E-Cheese with the Johnson side of the family which is always a favorite for the kids. Overall it was a great holiday weekend and a good time to remember all the things we are grateful for. Who could ask for a better family and such great friends!
