Deryck and I with my Parents

Deryck and I with my Aunt Shirley

My sister and My mom
The Saturday after Christmas, My parents brought my Aunt out to Overton to see our house. We were glad to see her getting out, I think its good for her. They didnt stay real long. But, we had a nice little dinner and visit. We were so glad Aunt Shirley liked our house. We miss all of them. They live in vegas so, we dont get to see them as much as we'd like to. We were glad they all came out to Overton to see us.


Deryck and I at my mom's on Christmas Eve.

Ashley and Harley, Aren't they so cute?

Two more of the cousin's playing Wii.

My sister Jessica, playing pool.
It was our first christmas being married. We had alot of fun. We got to spend equal time with both sides of the family which was good. On Christmas eve we went to my parents and had dinner with them and my sister and we all exchanged gifts. That was fun, we got alot of good stuff that we both wanted. Then the extended family all came over for dessert. We all had a fun time we just talked, played pool and wii. Deryck and I had a good time. Thanks for everything Mom and Dad!
On my Christmas Day we hung out with Deryck's family. We opened presents with Lori, Kevin, Jestin, Taryn, and Blayke. Oh yeah, Grandma and Grandpa Waters and Uncle Dave too. It was Blayke's first Christmas. It was so cute to watch him open his presents. After all the presents, we went to the Eureka in Mesquite to eat Christmas dinner at the buffet. Thats what Grandma and Grandpa Waters wanted to do. Oh yeah and the reason why i don't have pictures of Christmas Day is because, I left my camera at my moms on Christmas eve I was pretty bummed. Overall, I think it was a really good Christmas.
Hope you all had a good one too!

Christmas Lights

Deryck put up some christmas lights around our house. We needed some decoration on the outisde so, we decided to do christmas lights. The pictures arent very good, but i thought i would post some so everyone can see them. I put the little blinker blubs in them so they blink. Deryck thought it looked dumb. I thought it looked kind of cool. So we didn't feel like changing them so, we left them blinking.

Snow In Las Vegas

Here is some snow on the landscaping at the office we had to go to.
Deryck in the snow, he wanted me to take a picture of him.

I can't believe it actually snowed it Las Vegas, how crazy is that. Deryck and I were in the Las Vegas sunday night, stayed the night at my moms. Then we were there all day Monday. We had to get christmas shopping done and we had an appointment to go to. So the whole day we were out, it snowed. We went to our friend Ricky's house and his front yard was just covered. Deryck and I just couldnt get over that it snowed in Las Vegas. I mean come on how often does that happen. So i took a few pictures thought i would post them. :)

Our First Christmas Tree

So, I havent posted yet because, i had been debating what a should post. So I thought Deryck and I would share with you all our first christmas tree. We put it up the day after thanksgiving. We were so excited to put it up together, it is our first christmas tree. Its not a very exciting tree. Its pre-lit and i have red and silver ornaments on it. As you can see we don't have a tree topper because the top of our tree hits our ceiling. There is no room, its ok though. Well, here it is our first christmas tree!
