Merry Christmas!!

For Christmas this year my sister Stephanie, her husband Fred and their 5 kids, Ashlie, Josh, Jason, Jared, and Justin, that live in North Carolina, made the very long drive out here to surprise my parents for Christmas. I thought my mom was going to fall over when her and my dad opened the door to find all 7 of them standing on their porch. It was sooo hard to keep it a secret from my parents, but it was so worth it when we saw the shock on their faces! They were here for 2 weeks so I've been a little busy. We had a great time with and were very sad to see them leave. Hopefully they will be moving out here sometime next year( Hint Hint). Anyways here are some pictures of Christmas and some other stuff that we did while they were here!

Christmas Morning
Here's Ethan eating the paper...

This was one of his favorite toys, thanks Dottie & Jerry Eating more paper...

This is my mom opening her trip to Hawaii, must be nice!!
Fred, the trash man, and Justin, Josh, and Steph
Jared ripping open his presents
Jason with his remote helicopter..hopefully it's not broken yet Yes, that is a sucker, and yes it was like 9:30 at night... whatever!

Ethan and Justin in the wagon, they both loved being pulled around, didn't matter where, as long as it was moving!

Justin had his 4th birthday on the 27th so we had a little party with a pinata and cake. Don't ask me why we did the pinata in my mom's living room with the kids blind folded and with a big black stick, and with Adam holding it with his hands?!?! Sounds crazy, but actually nothing got broken.

Here is Justin, just after sneezing all over the cake, Mmmmmm Mmmmm!

Here are all the Mageau's with Grandpa
Since my entire family was actually in the same place, we tried to take some pictures. They turned out ok, most of us are looking at the camera, some aren't but whatever, at least we are all together!!

Looks like you guys had a lot of fun over Christmas. Were jealous we have no close family and no kids! Looks like Ethan had a great time eating the wrapping paper.

Oh my, Ethan looks so much like his daddy. He could pass for a twin in some of these picture. I can't wait to see him and you. We missed you all at Christmas. It is snowing (again) in Missouri and cold outside. We wish we lived in Arizona, when winter comes around. Give Ethan a big kiss from Grandma! Love,
