We went to Dufur and spent Christmas Eve with Steve's Mom.
We had a great time, here are some pics;

My favorite guys, Charlie, James, Steve, Zack and Jordan.
Aunt Mariah got a Wii for Christmas and Kyle couldn't wait to get it set up for her, or maybe he wanted to play it. Mariah told Kyle to go ask Cousin James if he would set it up, not really thinking that he would.
James loves to set things like this up so he went right to work along with Kyle.
Cousin James why is it taking so long?
Cousin James can we play yet?
All the time Aunt Mariah was letting James know that her satellite TV better work when he gets done cause it was working just fine before he messed with it. James reassured Aunt Mariah that he is a Satellite Communications specialist and this is what he does for work. It will work better when I get done.
After we left Grandmas' Steve and I headed into The Dalles to stay the night at my Brothers, we visited for a while then went to bed. We got up in the morning and had Waffles and eggs for breakfast and visited some more, we played with their youngest Grandson Brayden, here is a pic.

After dinner we all headed back home where we had our little Christmas here on Monday,
Miss Hailey, Jordan, Miss Mary, Charlie, Dawn, James, Zack and half of Steve.
I think we were all too tired to really do much, but the grandchildren seemed to enjoy the gifts that we got them even if they were duplicated. We got Hailey an art set that apparently someone else gave her too, so I suggested that she leave one of them here so she has something to do when she comes over.
We had a very busy Christmas, but it was fun.
Hope you all have a safe and Happy New Year!!!
