Christmas 2011

We spent Christmas this year (well, last year technically) with Katalyn's family in Virginia.  We had a grand time.



We made gingerbread houses.  (Casey and I worked long and hard on ours.)

There were the traditional (new tradition for the Griffith family) Christmas Eve jammies.  (Made lovingly by my mom.)

 The cousins had a great time playing together (I'm pretty sure there was a better picture of the three little ones together...I just never got it.) (Also I'm not sure how their are no pictures of Nephi and Grace...we should work on that...they were definitely there.)


 Owen had a great time with the broom (his new favorite toy).


Casey and I went up to D.C. with my mom and Bethany.  I had never been, and that was really fun.  We went to the air and space museum and the national portrait gallery.  (Don't worry I got in trouble with a security guard for taking my shoes off and playing in the water right after that picture was taken.)  We also ate at my brother Michael's fancy restaurant.  So fun.

Thanks family for a fun Christmas.  We love you!

Christmas Tinsel

We were decorating for Christmas...please don't mind my laugh.

For some reason, we ended up with an excessive amount of tinsel on our tree...:)

Giving Thanks


While this post is tremendously late, I figure it's never too late to give thanks.

Our Thanksgiving break was spent in Seattle with Casey's family.  We had so much fun being together, and Owen met some of his cousins for the very first time.  Here are the pictures:

There was: much family love,


lots of good food,
including a deep-fried turkey (courtesy of Casey and Trevor).

Many crazy antics. (This is not photo-shopped...it's real life.)

There was the annual Thanksgiving day soccer (very cold)






Fake Christmas.



The zoo!
Exceedingly great happiness all around.


We're thankful for family and friends.
