Our Little Rascals
This is just a sneak peek at some of the pictures our family has put together for our portion of the Christmas Picture Book that my creative & clever Mother-In-Law is putting together for a gift for  all 6 of her children.
Enjoy!

Yes, we are back!
Sorry I havn't posted in awhile.  Things have been crazy busy over here with the Greevers Posse.
Let us recap...
Dec. 18th, we drove up to Nevada to visit my Dad & Carrie (Gma & Gpa Walker).
The kids were absolutely spoiled by them.  That's why it didn't surprise me when the kids wanted to go back the instant we left.
Dagyn & I spent most of the time there sick & unable to eat all of the good food Carrie (Gma Walker) prepared for us all.  We think we may have experienced a bit of food poisoning from the food we had when we stopped to picnic on our way up.  Chris even had a bit-of-a-spell with it too one evening having him retire early one night.
At any rate, because of my health, I didn't take very many pictures while we were there.  But, I did manage to document our drive up there.
Here are a few pics (ok, A LOT of pics) of the road trip.

Gotta love moives on the go.

Makes for a quiet ride.

Chris seems a bit happy. Must be the vacation air.

Watchin' the cars go by aka Zoning Out.

One of our pit stops...thanks Moore Ranch.

Burro Creek Bridge ~ our lunch spot

Pictures & words alone cannot describe the sweetness these 2 girls have bottled up inside them.

The Deputies
Picture
It may not be the Bahamas...but I've got a beach to sit on.
Picture
The Deputies collected rocks, leaves...
Picture
and even shells.
Picture
And get this...We even found one shaped like a HEART. Hmmm go figure. First the Watermelon, next the potato chip now a rock. Love surrounds us!
Picture
The Deputies skipped rocks & then decided it was much more fun to throw fist-fulls instead. We all agreed it looked like feeding time at the Trout Farm.
Picture
Then Dad pulled out the heavy artillery. I just love the way Dyxon is looking at him in awe.
Picture
Lunch break...some cold leftover Pizza! Or I might want to say the culprit for our upset tummies...well atleast I am left to believe that is the case.
Picture
Yeah, Dylan wasn't too happy with me taking a pic of him eating.
Picture
And that about wraps up our trip to (stop at) Burro Creek.
Picture
Oh wait, the kids did manage to steal (borrow) my camera and took a couple of shots. Here's the presents under the tree.

And Dad at the top of the stairs. If you notice...he is still sporting that smile. Actually, I think it has gotten bigger!
After we returned to Arizona (the night after actually) we had another Christmas celebration over at Gma & Gpa Madsen's (Chris' parents) with the whole family. 
We ate Chris' famous chicken enchiladas (well atleast they are famous within our families walls) + all the fixin's.  The little kids opened presents and then we headed off to a local neighborhood for their annual display of Christmas lights. 
Not sure why...other than doing a lot of talking...I did not manage to get any pics.
The following Sunday we were off to my sister's to celebrate another Christmas with my sister, Aunt & Uncle and families.
Chris made marshmallow shooters for all the boys (that would be the Big Boys too *wink*) and thus we littered my sister's new home with mini colored marshmallows all over her back yard.
The kids (young & old alike) had a blast.
As you can see by the pics below I kept safe by taking them from behind a closed glass door.  So, they are a little blurry.  Smart thinking on my part since when I tried taking them outside...I was an easy target.  As you can tell in the first pic by my Uncle Clyde aiming right at me.
Later they will have been taught by Chris how to make adaptations to their guns to send them into a fully automatic mode.

You gotta be quick or else be shot!
Well, that would just about wrap it up but I would fail to mention we had yet another celebration back over at Gma & Gpa Madsen's for a traditional Christmas dinner with a layout of Turkey, Ham & all the fixin's later that week.

Well, folks I'm off to bed.  That about covers the tail end of 2009.  We have a birthday to celebrate tomorrow {Devyn turns Double Digits} and then I will play catchup with you all on how things have been going since we started 2010 & how we got back into the groove of schooling (homeschool & public).

g'Night!
