Christmas was very beautiful this year. I was scheduled to work on Christmas Eve and Christmas this year. I'm not even sure how that ended up happening, but things ended up working out very well. We ran out of work so I got to take off Christmas Eve and go up to The Mayor's house to spend time with the family. All of the boys went to help Jesse build his new home in Payson, hence the reason they all look homeless in this pic. We thought it would be fun this year to be like the family on A Christmas Story and go eat Chinese food on Christmas Eve. It was so good! Unfortunately nobody sang "fa ra ra ra ra, ra ra ra ra" to us, but my parents churped up and started singing it. I thought for sure we were going to get kicked out. We went home Christmas Eve since I was fortunate enough to have work on Christmas. I work my hours and then we went back to The Mayor's house for some ultra yummy turkey and roast. The boys also played Rock Band. They were hilarious to watch. (My family is completely crazy). The day after Christmas I got to meet up with Brooke and all the ladies for a much needed gettogether and some delicious lunch. It was so good to get all of us together since we never see Brooke anymore. We miss you Brooke! That night we had the annual Hone family Christmas party. It's filled with shrimp, french dips, and pinatas. Grandma Carolyn sure does spoil her grandkids and they LOVE it! Here they are sporting their annual dress ups. They always have so much fun and look forward to the pinata party all year long. We feel very blessed this year. We're very grateful to have each other, our families, a roof over our heads, food, warm clothing, etc. I hope everybody had an amazing Christmas this year as well.
