Where do I begin?

Over the last 2-3 weeks for the holidays, we packed a lot in as a family. All of my family (parents, sisters &  their spouses, their children, & my brother) were in town, and most of them stayed in our home. We had about 20 people staying with us.  We enjoyed Christmas and New Years, feasted, displayed our talents for Christmas Eve, attended family parties, watched Lindy's dance concert, celebrated Lindy's 8th birthday & viewed her baptism, attended the temple, gamed & movied, did a pinata, Santa delivered, sledded & skiied, Chris and I remembered our 11 yr. wedding anniversary, my sister Molly delivered a baby, and we participated & cheered at our ward b-ball game.

For added excitement we had our annual Christmas tradition of stomach flu.  After all, Christmas just wouldn't be the same without stomach flu. (It's still up for debate if my cooking got us all sick.)  Next year for Christmas gifts we will give you each plastic bowls and pepto bismo.  Sometimes, I wonder if stomach flu is good to have over the holidays, since we eat too much.

All in all it was a wonderful holiday, with great memories. Families are simply the best.
I love family sleepovers. What would we do without each other?
The truth is; it's nicer to suffer from stomach flu together than by yourself.

Now, I feel very lazy, and I have no energy to put Christmas away.
I wonder when I will get around to posting some of the pictures from the last couple of weeks.
It's hard to know where to begin.
My camera is also acting up. It won't allow me to download our recent photos.
Something about incompatible jpegs and camera not responding????!!!! Hmm, oh well.
If you want to see some pictures; my sisters did posts here and here.

Happy New Year to all of you!
