Bobby's parents celebrated 40 years of marriage on the 5th of December, so we took them out for a really nice dinner. All they wanted was to be with their kids and grand-kids, so it was really special.

On the 18th of December, we celebrated both Bobby's 42nd birthday as well as Grandma Morgan's 93rd birthday! Grandma's birthday is the 18th and Bobby's is the 19th, so as long as Bobby and I have been together, we've been celebrating their birthdays together. It was really fun.

The week of the 19th was busy with shopping and getting ready for Christmas. Christmas Eve finally arrived and Carla, Bobby and I piled in the car and headed to Helena. The roads were pretty well dry on the way there, but we knew a storm was coming, so we ended up having to cut our day short and head home before dark. This was disappointing because we had planned on going to my Grandpa's on the night of Christmas Eve, but we just didn't want to have to drive around on terrible roads in the dark. In Helena, my Dad and Sue had Grandma Morgan, Andy, Bill, Tristan and baby Kamden over as well as us. Sue made a delicious roast and then we opened presents. We had to leave around 3:00, but it was a really nice time.

Once we made it home to Cascade we finished wrapping presents, made Chicken Marsala for dinner and the kids (Cody, Tom and Mandy) trickled in. We did presents around 10:00 and fun was had by all! We finally got to bed around midnight and Carla woke us up at 6:30 to do presents from Santa as well as from Bobby and I. She is such a sweetheart and really takes her time unwrapping and enjoying the moment. Most kids rip through presents like crazy kids, Carla takes in every moment, plays with and enjoys every gift. It's really neat.
|Let the opening begin!|
|Look what Papa got!|
