Family Pictures

My mom's friend Carina did our family pictures...Turned out pretty good for last minute and the cold weather!
I love this picture cause Blake and I are laughing SO hard. I went to jump up on Blake and Dad, lets just say I kneed Dad below the belt in my great effort!

Brogan's face is priceless in this picture! Gotta love all those boys!
Good pics of Mom and Dad too!

Almost all of the GIRLS!

We had our annual Christmas party with the girls while I was home. Juli and Cassandra hosted it at Juli's house. The food was great and the company even better! The only thing(s) missing was...Tara, Amanda, and Candice! We missed you all. We are all growing up and it is evident by how hard it is to all get together!!

Kelsey had her second little boy...precious!

The Holidays!

Now the Holidays have passed and I finally have some time to do some posts! We had such a great Christmas....It was fun having Blake home for Christmas since we were with my family this year. Our family and loved ones spoiled us! We appreciate all our family does for us- We are so blessed! Thank you, thank you, thank you! xoxo

We had a little Christmas party with the Browns before we went to Boise for Christmas. Our agenda included, dinner and a movie followed by a fun night of ginger bread house decorating. laughing and crying caused by laughter are never absent when getting together with Josh's family!

Christmas Eve was nice with the Bolinder family and Grandma and Grandpa Richards were there too. We had a little Nativity. Brogan was a little Wise Man.
A Christmas Eve tradition... PJs! This year it was especially great...
We had a pretty good laugh when Josh got a matching PJ set. Not even Dad got the matching set. So we had to take the photo opportunity...

Good Morning!
Typical Richards Christmas!
Dad looks MAD... He must not have gotten what he wanted : 0

In case you are wondering who the stranger is...that is Tracey...Blake's friend from Australia! She is a very sweet lady. Tracey saved all her money to come visit the USA, she even brought little gifts for everyone. If any Boise natives were wondering about the fluke white Christmas you can thank Tracey! She prayed for that snow and reminded us each morning she was the cuase of the whiteness! Boise has not had a white christmas in years...It was really pretty. (thanks Tracey!): )
