Welcome Christmas, Christmas Day!!

It was our 1st Christmas as the Tanners! After finishing some grueling finals (and Grant's very LAST finals!) we packed up and drove to Denver to spend the holidays with the rest of the Tanners! All of Grant's siblings and their respective spouses and child (Kate's the spoiled lone grandchild) were able to make it so it was big party! We did lots of fun things and spent lots of time talking and playing Rock Band and Mariokart. It was great :)

First, we went on a tour of the Celestial Seasonings factory.We got a cool tour of the factory including seeing all of the automated machines. It was a bit like Willy Wonka, but it wasn't smooth and chocolate-y :) We didn't get to take pictures inside so that was a bummer.

But we did get this great shot of Clint & Andrea in their lovely hair nets!

Christmas Eve was Rachel's Birthday. We all went out to dinner and then went light seeing. We saw some pretty intense houses:It took between five and ten minutes just to get down the street to see this house because of all the cars and people walking around! I really liked the ornaments in the trees- fun!

We also had cake for Rachel's Birthday! The big 22!

We spent a lot of our time over Christmas playing with not-so-baby "Baby Kate." She got lots of attention being the only grandkid and we took lots of pictures of her adventures as well:

We had lots of fun playing with our Christmas presents as well! We got an iPod touch from the Tanners and we have had lots of fun figuring that out. We've been sporting our new clothes and I've been attempting to make a new skirt with my new sewing machine-- except I'm quite bad... so Leslie redoes the stuff I totally botch :)

For Christmas Grant also got me tickets to an Avalanche game! I was the envy of all the Peterson family-- to see the Avs in the actual Pepsi Center!!It was a great game AND they won. What a perfect present-- Good job Grant!!

Outside the Pepsi Center-- in some of our new Christmas clothes!

It was a wonderful break and it was great see everyone again. Now it's back to Provo for school and work-- Wahoo!
