Christmas #2 Nauvoo

Turns out that we were having too much fun to remember to take pictures for our second Christmas in Nauvoo.  SO this is as good as it gets!  When we got there we set up the tree and laid out the presents.  Eden was having a hay day!

Spent a lot of our time doing what the Marshall's have always loved doing.  Watching football games!!!  
Eden loved it too!  Yes! That's my girl!

It was a fun Christmas morning!  Got lots of good stuff.  
This was my favorite to gift and we saved it for last.  I have spent the last several months working on a rag jean quilt for my sister.  One side of it was Utah Jazz and the other was BYU.  Thank you, by the way, to those who donated their jeans!  It was much appreciated!  

Needless to say, Ryanne loved it!  I think that during Christmas time I definitely enjoy the giving part more.  I love watching my family open up gifts a be so excited!  You made my day Ryanne!

I also owe a huge THANK YOU to my parents.  They also contributed to Colby's medical supply fund as a Christmas Present.  My mom was quite clever.  She address the present to "Colby & Eden."  Colby looking very perplexed opened it up to find a toy medical supply kit with some visa gift cards attached.  
I must say mom that was very creative!

Eden also got some blocks and loves knocking them down.  She will not let you build more than three rows high before she has sprinted across the room and knocked them over.  Each time she does she gets tickled and the funny thing is she knows it is coming.  As she knocks them over she braces herself and already starts to giggle.  So cute i love it!

We were also there for new years day and we stayed up watching movies and my dad and sister and I played a rousing game of "nerts" for almost 3 hours!  But we got pretty exhausted right about the time the ball dropped.  

 As usual we had a wonderful time with my family in Nauvoo.  We made it to the temple and wondering the streets of Old Nauvoo.  I am so glad that it is so close so we can go so often and enjoy the spirit that is there.
