Twiggy shrub, tiny flowers + red berries, possible Ilex?

Hi there:  I have some tall, twiggy shrubs to ID.  They have small glossy leaves, tiny round pink/white flowers in the spring (the bees LOVE them), and small oval red berries in the fall.

These shrubs can get to over 6 feet if I let them.  They reseed themselves prolifically -- I have found their seedlings all over the yard.

Location:  Denver suburb, zone 5, clay soil, moderate irrigation.

Thanks for any help!
