A Merry Christmas!

For Christmas this year we had a couple opportunities to celebrate. The week before Christmas we went to Boise for Beca's graduation from Boise State's Nursing Program and also her commission into the Army as an Officer. Since the Burts weren't coming to Utah for Christmas we celebrated Christmas with Mikey's family while we were there. Rhonda made a delicious prime rib dinner and then we all opened presents. The nieces and nephew were so excited with the gifts they received and we had a great time with the family. We of course received awesome gifts too! Marilyn and Lenny hosted the annual Burt Christmas party this year so on Christmas eve we stoppped by there for a quick bite and visit with the Burt side of the family. Then Granny Lois hosted her annual Christmas party at the clubhouse so we finished the night off there. She does this sort of raffle gift thing and strangely enough Mikey received an exact gift I wanted to get him but ran out of time to get it. I wanted to either buy or make him a black scarf with argyle print on it to wear with his suits and dress clothes. I was so happy when he opened his gift and received a black scarf with argyle print on it! I think I was more excited about it than he was! One Christmas day we just hung out home just the four of us. Of course I went out of budget and got Mikey a bunch of stuff because I couldn't decide what to buy. He needed everything I got him though so it worked out. We just decided it would be Christmas, birthday and Valentine's day gifts. I also got sparty and mo a stocking full of goodies that they loved! Mo loved her "babies" we got her so much we had to take them away, in just one day she almost ate them completely! My mom made us a really awesome gift too! She put together a recipe book with all the famous family and friends recipes we all love and wanted to know. I was really impressed with her thoughtfullness and creativity. I must say it was a great Christmas this year!
