Christmas 2011 Style

My friend Shanoa painted this amazing painting for Eric...we absolutely love it!! His fish room is starting to have quite the collection of custom paintings :0).
Opening the fish paintings

Eric bought me these amazing cage shoes...luv them :0)....ignore the fact that I look like a walking zombie

Our amazing gingerbread houses

This photo is pretty priceless, because it doesn't happen much. Mara has always had an aversion to Uncle Eric-even if I was holding her sitting next to him she would flip out unless she was on the other side of me. Finally this trip she started to warm up to him. We all went bowling and had an absolute blast. It was fun to spend time with Amber, Shayne, and all the kiddos. It was pretty entertaining to watch them bowl-Eric even got a strike while on the phone dealing with some business issues. *** Funny side note: Payden asked my mom when she said that we were coming if "Uncle Eric is the one with the big muscles"-my mom said yes and Payden replied, "Oh good, because he gives the best anaconda hugs"-haha, yup Eric likes Nacho Libre a little too much sometimes.

Eric's awesome reaction to a gift at his basketball Christmas party. His assistant coach is a big black dude...and the funny thing is when you put him and Eric together from the back they resemble Rob and Big. Eric's other assistant Trey got them shirts that say Rob and Big on the back, Eric thought it was pretty amusing-we all did in fact :0)

We had a great Christmas this year in Pocatello. It was a busy whirlwind like usual but we did some super fun things:

*Idaho Falls pre-Christmas shopping
*Twin Falls shopping and seeing friends

*Lunch with Jen and Dane

*Gingerbread houses on Christmas Eve

*Bowling with Amber's fam

*Sleep-over with the Hoskins kiddos

*Eric and Shayne Crossfitting

*Seeing 2 Grandpa's and 2 Grandma's

*Dinner @ Sandpiper

*Eating almost a whole tray of cinnamon rolls (that'd be me)

*Unwrap gifts and Christmas dinner

*ISU vs Wyoming-really good first 1/2, awesome to watch Adam play

Hope all of your Holidays were as bright as ours :0)

Nothing like a little pre-Christmas burpee session. Eric bet Paige that she couldn't do 50 burpees and she proved him wrong. Mara caught on and was loving it....Payden, not so much-lol.
