Here we are- 2010!

New Year's Eve started out with a bang thanks to these two! These are my awesome parents, who work at the St. George Temple every weekend, so having them come up for a visit was an extra special treat! We had a big dinner, my Dad made a prime rib roast- man, it was tasty! My Dad is getting to be a great chef! (I know you love this picture, right Dad?)

We had lots of entertainment, too! This is my little niece, Lexi- we thought she looked like a little clown here, trying to pick up as many balloons as she could!
My girls love their sweet little baby cousins!
Me and my mum!

"The boys" got some pretty nice looking outfits from Grandma and Grandpa! (Yes, we got to celebrate Christmas again!)

We were so jealous of the Blackwells that got to go bowling in St. George with my parents, we had to make a trip of our own! We went to the new Boondocks in Kaysville, here's Allison celebrating! It looks like she got 8 down that time!
There is much to see while waiting for your turn!
Two cute girls! (My sister and her daughter, Mataya!)
The real reason my parents were able to get the weekend off from their calling in St. George was to attend the sealing of my cousin at the Bountiful Temple. Here they are with half of their kids. Didn't we plan our outfits nicely?
By the way, Mac Christensen was the sealer! You know, Mr. Mac and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir President? (No one seals the way he seals!)
The reception was at the Salt Lake City/County building. I thought it was cute to see these babies checking each other out! 2009 was the year for baby girls!
These are some short videos from our New Year's Eve party- Tommy is turning into a little rocker with the help of his Dad. He accidently poked his eye that night with some brushes for the drums, so you'll see a nice large band-aid over his eye. Spencer's grooving in there also. The bottom video is Lexi getting some "cha-cha-cha" action going! She's quite the dancer!

Wow - you and your family all look so much alike! I don't think I look that much like any of my brothers and sisters or parents.

Looks like you guys have been having lots of fun! My kids have been begging me to take them bowling. I got some coupons, so we will have to go soon!

You guys sure know how to rock it out! That was a way fun way to spend New Year's Eve! It was fun to get to see you so many days in a row. We need to do that more often:)
