Christmas Day in Montana

We spent Christmas week in Billings, MT with my parents. My sister and her husband were able to travel from Spokane with their two kids. It was busy, but so much fun. Three under three makes for some wild times!
Danny and his matchbox cars. My mom knew Danny's matchbox cars had gone missing at some point when he was younger. She found cars on e-bay from the 70s and 80s. Zeke and Danny were both excited!

Visit from G-pa and Ama

Danny's Dad, Rocky, and step mom, Rebecca are visiting the states for about a month from Taiwan. We have had a great time with them and wanted to share some pics.
Here is Rebecca and I making zucchini muffins and cookies. They are taking a Kitchen Aid mixer back with them and Rebecca wanted to learn some new recipes.
Playing a heated game of Mah jongCousin Hannah and Zeke solving the world's problems while looking out the front picture window.
Zeke searched high and low to find David hiding in his sandbox. He couldn't quite figure out where the rest of him was hidden.

The whole gang minus Danny's older sister Debbie and family who live in Alaska.
Fun Family Times!
