We had a great Christmas this year. Reuben's parents came and then the rest of my family came up for new years. We even got snow accompanied with weather that would freeze your eyeballs out.
Grandpa and O getting their workout on while shoveling snow.
Too many carrots made for an explosion and trip to the sink. He doesn't care though.
Yay Owen!
fall-la-la-la-la la-la-la-LA!
"I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it."
Santa likes doing the laundry, which got me put on the naughty list because I hate it!
Merry Christmas!
Santa on Christmas morning.
Opening his......BINKIES!
He really only cared for the wrapping paper. I wonder how long we can keep that going.
GHETTO stockings this year. I waited until the last minute to buy them and then they didn't have the style I wanted. so we went with uggs.
One of the dummer ideas I had. I made these bouquets for all our friends up here. They just didn't look as cool as I had imagined them.
May or may not have seen Sister Mettra sing "Ave Maria" in German on temple square.
Us and Grandma Gin, my Grandma.
Little Shepard boy.
He saw the star!!!!!
Loves being a Shepard.
Learning to like the camera.
Looking rather jolly... fake smile.
We saw Santa and Mrs. Clause also. I think they came on Harlies.
Little Shepard boy is a little ticked that he is going to bed after all this dress up action.
Hope everyone had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!


  1. haha I love all of Owen's pictures so cute! Good to hear you guys had a great Christmas!

  2. hey now, i TOTALLY appreciated the celery bouquet AND took a picture of it because i thought it was so stinkin' cute. so hush. :)

  3. Those bouquets are a terrible idea, Kira Mettra (Cook).

    People wants sweets and treats during Christmas, not celery! Cute pics of lil' O. Looks like everybody had a great Christmas. We need to get our lil' guys together soon.

  4. you would do a celery and tomato bouquet... ha ha ha... After all the sweets I had I was craving veggies... ha.. still funny though.. and look at sister Mettra, on the wild side with animal print... why did we have to look so ugly in our thrift store clothes?

  5. I loved the celery bouquet! Very clever! Owen is getting so big and so stinking cute! Hope I see you tomorrow at the bachelor party :)
