My friend Dana stopped by to say "Hi" on the 23rd. Ave always loves to hang out with Jada and Madelyn. They are nice girls.
Christmas Eve time. Duke cuddled with Dad while he was in the holiday spirit. He calls him "rat dog" all the time, but I think they are buddies.
Teague, Lando, Ave, and Austin playing some Minecraft together on Christmas Eve.
Link was very silly after his nap. He was making faces at Papa.

Jordan and baby Hawkins, our rare blondes.
Liam is very blond still also! He loves playing with Carter and Teague.
Time for the cousin present exchange!

Lincoln got Ave many wonderful One Direction gifts. He knows her so well!
2 pretty sisters
Little cousins! We were missing Connor and Drea, but everyone else is there.
Some of the big cousins. Kind of a dark picture, but I loved having everyone over. We had lots of good laughs!
My 3 wonderful kids. They looked very dapper!
A sisters picture. So happy to be together.
Kyle and I. We never have pictures together. Good idea Kels.
Our little Mom. We just love her.
Terri and her girls. Thanks for being a good sport Terr! We know you love pictures!
Linky and his Mom. Joe couldn't get time off and graciously told Kels to come to Butte. He's a good guy, and we missed him!
They stayed with us, and we loved it. My house is too quiet without Link right now. This is a super cute picture!
Lincoln and Uncle Kyle wrestling.
Lincoln and Carter wrestling. Link was having a pretty fun night!
Hawkins thought feeding toys to Uncle Kyle was pretty great. He's a very good little baby, so happy!
Teague and his pal Jordan. I love that Jordan gets a picture with every kid. They love her!
After everyone left, the kids opened one present each from Grandma and Papa. Teague was so so happy to get the Indominus Rex! Can you tell?
When we got home, Ave and Kyle sprinkled her reindeer food outside. She made it at after school activities. I'm glad she remembered it!
Christmas morning. Teague was feeling kind of icky, but some Cheerios helped. He was happy to get a Gorilla Grodd Lego set from Santa. He said he's been asking for it for a "hundred years!"
Carter got some giant huge Nerf gun. Not my favorite thing in the world, but he loves it! If it makes him happy, that's all that matters (and he looks pretty happy!)
Avers got her own Kindle! She absolutely loves it!
Time to open the Sunburst presents!
Carter had to stop and tell us all some lemur facts.
They loved absolutely everything! So did Kyle and I! All we can do is thank everyone again.
Teague couldn't wait to get started on some Lego sets!
Carter loves his new game.
Time to head over to Papa's house and check out the stockings. As usual, they were loaded with goodies!
Carter was really happy about something here. I can't remember what!
Link got lots of cool CARS stuff. He was a happy guy!
What is this? Good guess...A Nerf Gun! He also got a Nerf CrossBow. Nerf should really love our family.
Teague loves his light up Star Wars hat. He knows he looks good when he wears it!
Baby Hawkins was looking good in argyle! His favorite thing of the day was the candy necklaces!
Landon looks very handsome in this. He has a nice smile.
Avers checking out a new book. She dressed up in one of her new outfits from Sunburst. The sweater dress was so cute.
Kyle and Teagie
Erica and Teagie - he helped her put together Hawkins' zoo. Sean got Erica that Redskins sweater for Christmas. It is awesome!
Two tired little boys.
Link is always in a great mood after a nap! He had a lot of fun yelling "Papa!"
Papa had a lot of fun yelling, "Lincoln!"
Carter got a really cool Playmation Avengers set from Grandma and Grandpa Barsness. He is hiding and shooting his arc reactor here. He gets very into it! I hope everyone had as great a Christmas as we did! Thanks all!
