Cousins Christmas Party

Every Christmas since my parents returned from their mission they've hosted a Cousin's Christmas Party for all their grand kids who are out of diapers. It's always a big hit and the kids love it!
Mom and dad with the grand kids who could attend

Their bags of gifts, etc...

Preston was a little stinker and refused to participate until the gifts were handed out at the end!

Dad telling the story of Jesus/Christmas

The tables set up

The crafts they made

Listening to Grandpa

Making Christmas Tree Cupcakes.

Making the crafts

Opening their gifts

And thanking Grandpa and Grandma

Soon after we arrived to pick up our kids, there was a family emergency so my parents left to take care of things and we stayed with the kids. Nick helped the boys transform their transformers and get batteries in their cars/trucks, etc. It's nice to have a handy man around!

Then the other parents arrived....

I tried to help Amelia do a Christmas Tree Cupcake, but I had cleaned up a bit before she arrived and accidentally threw away the frosting. I gave her the one grandma made.

I took Tyler and helped him open his gifts from grandma and grandpa

Once they were opened, he loved playing with them.
It was a fun time and Nick and I were able to get all our Christmas shopping done during the party and just spend some much needed alone time together! It was wonderful! :-)

Thanks mom and dad!!!
