This past weekend the Winters' Family celebrated Thanksgiving and Christmas. Benj, Anna, Kyle, and Vas all flew in to celebrate, and we had Kelsey on Skype. It was a great time, here are some pictures:

Talking to Aunt Anna:
Look Mom...no hands!
I took a nap with daddy
I read stories with Grandpa (if anyone knows of a good tool to remove red-eye let me know)
In our family, everyone has a handmade stocking. Over the past few years I have taken on the task of making one for all of the newcomers (and my parents, because they didn't have them), so I got to make one for Dax this year:
Dax in his new Christmas PJ's from Grandma and Grandpa
Hanging out with Grandpa and my new snowman from mommy and daddy
Check out my new reindeer hat from Aunt Jessie and Uncle Dustin
We had a great time and it was wonderful seeing everyone, but really sad to see them all go. I sometimes miss the days when we all lived in the same house together - we never had to spend any holidays apart.
