Better Late Than Never!!!! Xmas in Washington

We went to Washington for the first two weeks in December. There is a butcher shop in WA and Joe took us there. I believe this is nearby and Steven and his family fished here when he was little.
haha! This was at a casino. It was soooo cold that the fountain froze over and we thought it looked pretty cool so we pulled over to take some pictures all cozied up together.

Jackson was so small in this picture. I don't have any pictures of he and I up so I decided that since this was officially during the trip I would throw it in. I love this little man soooo much...I can't believe I lived so long without him.
This one of Steven's favorite uncles on the Bravo side. Well he loves them all but I think Uncle Mike was really cool to him as he grew up. Steven couldn't wait for him to meet him. We had such a blast hanging out and catching up.
Jackson just loves his Grandmas. I was sooo thankful that Val was so willing to spend so much time with him!!! I was in so much pain for a lot of the trip and she swept right in and took care of him all night a few nights. This was after his baby blessing at Val and Joe's house. I had to get a pick of Great Grandma and Grandma together.
She just loves him so much. She held him for as long as she could and he loved every minute of it. We are so fortunate to have such loving family!!! Oh how we love Great Grandma
This was hilarious. Elliana wanted to kiss and hug Jackson all day long. This seriously was over about a 40 minute period of time. She would leave and come back and go back and forth back and forth. Jackson didn't mind it much either.

Aunt Cindy got quite the kick out of it too. She was the mediator for most of it.

I love this picture. This is Steven and his older sister Desire with and E. haha. What good lookers they are!!! We spent more time with his siblings this trip than any other and it was so much fun. We are looking forward to doing it again soon.
This may be one of the sweetest women I have ever met in my entire life. She is such a great example and always gives us honest advice. It was so much fun to spend time at their house. Lucky us they invite us to stay there everytime we got to WA. Jackson couldn't get enough of her. And lucky for him the feeling was mutual. I loved being there for the Christmas season. We didn't actually get to spend Christmas with them but we celebrated all the same.
They must be having a serious conversation. I couldn't tell ya. I was too busy snapping away.

The day after we arrived in WA Steven couldn't wait to go show the baby off to his Grandma and Grandpa so we took a trip to their house and hung out for a while. About every couple of weeks I hear about their awesome cheese cutter and how he wants to find one soooo badly. The silly things we remember.
