Over the River and through the Woods...

It was a Lee Christmas this year. And while we missed Laurel, Michelle and all their family... I've gotta say, we had a really great time.

Here we are packed as tight as possible and watching 'Elf."

On the road. Jake was puking his guts out for the last 2 1/2 hours of our trip... then I got sick late in the night. It sucked, but it thankfully didn't last long at all. Also, no one else got sick because of us. *Phew*

This in my parents' Sacrament Meeting (I know... irreverent.) Anyway, my mom drew a picture of Jakey and, or course, Matt and I wanted her to draw us too. Seriously, this is what she drew. As Matt said, "looks like a toilet bowl with a face."

Christmas Eve means two things: Mexican food and a hilarious Nativity re-enactment. My mom went all out this year with each character's costume ready and bagged to be picked by us. It was awesome.
Blaine was the donkey.

Matt, an entranced wise-man.

Sarah was Mary.

Brett and Robyn were shepherds.

My dad was the inn-keeper.

My mom narrated. (I was the angel/photographer).

"No room."

Baby Jesus was a black Cabbage Patch Kid, right?

Bearing gifts.

Matt, Megan, and Scotty looking very wise.

Oh, these two... :)
Christmas jammies.

Cookies and milk for Santa. Oats for Rudolf.

Now that's true Christmas spirit.
And a great throw-back to 2006. 

Les Miserables. Can you tell who didn't like it?

Voo Doo Doughnut in Portland. The Portland Cream knocked my socks off! (Right, Mom?)

We found this flyer outside of "Bunk" (a great Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives sandwich place).
"The Mormon Trannys" and "Clackamas Baby Killers". Wow.

The kiddos eating their sprinkle doughnuts at the little table. Yes... Sarah is wearing her Rupunzel dress and is feeding her new Rupunzel doll.

It stopped raining for about ten minutes and Jake was pumped to ride his scooter outside instead of inside. Thanks Steve and Chris for the scooters and thanks, Mom and Dad for allowing the kids to ride these in your house!

Hours of entertainment for our drive back home.

Baby, it's cold outside.

We had a wonderful Christmas in Washington.
