Christmas 2012

Annual Bretzke nativity. 

With Dan and Sam away serving missions, 
the 3 brothers were temporarily replaced by the "three little girls"
...who sure showed a lot more dramatic enthusiasms then the boys usually do.

We had a cute couple of angles.

Britney was coming down the stairs and we asked her if she was gonna be Mary 
and she in her perfect divas voice replied, "Probably."
 She really does play a perfect Mary.

Well i thought we were getting a cute picture of the shepherds...apparently one of the shepherds was super pumped about the angels announcement. Oh Benny.

Late Christmas Eve we did the sibling gift exchange. I had Curtis and he got a Canadian Orientation packet, complete with toonies and loonies to go buy poutine with! 

Christmas morning.

I've been super excited about giving McKye Beatles rockband, he unwrapped the first rockband and was ecstatic...then he pulled out the Beatles one and made <<<< this face and said, "what the..." (My kids always say what the... they never fill in the blank thankfully.)
We explained it was still a rock band game and he decided to be happy about it.  Really happy. He played it most of Christmas with whatever member of the family he could convince to play with him.

Had a great week chillin' with the bretzkes (after Christmas morning i got lazy though and didn't take any pictures)

Bowen Christmas


They were so cutes with their rosy cheeks and toque hair, playing with their cousins after.

My mom in her sparkly Christmas sweater 
I bought her. 

And my sister with her rad purple low lights you can't really see in the picture.

Looking at Grandma's new grandkids calendar, finding all the McKye's
Levi and Kamber giving us some tunes.

McKye basically worshiping his cousin Josh, wanting to do everything with him,
 including sit on the same chair to et their pie.

Evanny maybe a little bit done with Aaron playing with his pigtails.
I know how ya feel Ev.
  Speaking of grandkids, here's the impromptu "all the grandkids" picture we tried to take. Baby Cassidy pulled Levi's hair so he bawled the whole time. Aaron was pulling Evanny's hair, Josh was being a little too wiggly on grumpy ol' grandpa's lap, and Kamber just kept walking off.
Regardless, there they all are! Getting to be quite the group. 8 in 8 years. 
(Someone better pop one out for 2013, we're on a roll!)

Merry Christmas...
til next year!

Haha, so you'll notice on fb, that I asked about PS3! Not realising that you're an Xbox family. Oh well! Love all your photos. My challenge is actually using my camera not just packing it for the sake of packing it. We're off to Hawaii in two weeks so here's to being extra camera happy.
