Christmas with the Purcells!

We were so blessed to be able to spend a few weeks in Utah for Christmas/New Years!  It's taken me a while to get my act together, but I figured I better get these posts posted before it's time for Christmas next year.

We did most of our Christmas celebrations with Matt's family a couple days before Christmas because that was when everyone could be together.

Christian and Ashtyn

Sweet Ellie

Steph and James with the girls

Chase with Grandma Purcell


Matt single-handedly became Chase's favorite uncle and James' least favorite brother with this gift. ;)  Try explaining to a 4 year old that he can't shoot his little sisters with a Nerf gun...

Dad and Stacie

One happy little boy with his sucker and Nerf gun from uncle Matt :)

Steph and James

Steph and Dad

Matt watching cartoons with Ashtyn :)

Stacie and the little burrito

Haha, Ashtyn.  She's hilarious.

Here we are with secret elf gifts, but we couldn't all be in one picture...

So, here is the second one. :)

After the kids went to bed we played this game with random little gifts--it was pretty hilarious.  Here are all the gifts in one big pile!

Christian thinks they are all his. ;)

James was thrilled about receiving some soft blue nail polish.  It goes well with his eyes don't you think?

Yep, that's gummy bacon.

I think James knows what it is...

More nail polish!  ha.  At least Steph will enjoy them. :)  These were our doing, so it was really funny that James got both of them!

Dad with his hula girl

You can't go wrong with some snow in a can.

This was one of the most creative gifts--such a great idea from Stephie-Lynne. :)

I love this thing!

And of course, the night wouldn't be complete without the crib dribbler.  Haha!  We re-gifted this one for another white elephant party--the box was hilarious!  I just wish there was actually a crib dribbler inside. :)

It was a great Christmas and so fun to have a couple days with everyone there before Steph and James went back to Saint George.
