Christmas at the mountain

Christmas this year we hit the road and drove to the McPherson Mountain Retreat to hang out with the whole clan. Everyone was there even Aunt Jenn who didn't have to rush back to work in retail this year along with her newest cousin Phoenix who turned one month while we were together. 7 adults, 2 kids and 1 dog made for some fun times during the week. We ate a lot, played a ton of Wii and board games (where I was undefeated in our newest game!) and cards. Our fun adventures including a candlelight service at a church we found online, playing in the snow with Lucky the dog, and making sure Molly didn't terrorize Phoenix too much. Molly made out in presents this year big time - so much Jon decided we should hold the present we got her until later. She got an easel, laptop, Noah's ark and shopping cart and of course tons of cute clothes! Hard to believe this time last year a skype conversation is all we had with Jon - this year we have been around him nonstop for 6 days and he doesn't go back to work for 2 more days. Molly loves having her dad around to spoil her and give her lots of extra cookies and play time outside.
Peek-a-boo - Molly woke up very happy to say hi everyone!
I love my cousin - I will love on him so much (more if people would stop supervising me)

Wii time while the girls took a break on the couch with all the grandkids (and grand dog)

Molly loves the snow - not quite like Alaska but enough to play in and have fun.

Molly supervising dad and Grandaddy - notice the easel in the background. Molly has had some fun coloring on it already. Dad was supposed to make sure she didn't get the markers but we came in to find them playing wii and Molly walking around with 2 markers in her hand. We had some fun times but Molly is a little sleep deprived.
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!!
