December 2011

Another jam packed month. We started with trying to attempt some family pictures. Before we had the official ones later in the month. Then Ashley, Mom, Kelsie and I got to go to the Nutcracker. My mom's work puts on a reception before it and it was fabulous. We loved it and it was the first time I had even seen it. Then my mother in law cam for the week before Christmas to help out. The kids had a blast with her. My father in law flew in on Christmas Eve so we went to the Christmas lights/nativity at the temple and met some dear friends of ours from Washington that snowbird down here in the winter. The big day was Sunday with it being Christmas and we also blessed Draelen. What a beautiful day. All of my siblings were in town and all of them came to church. It was very special for me. We opened lots of gifts and ate lots of yummy food. Then the next day we did the Hosford side family pictures. (Didn't post any cause they are on a disc at my mom's) it was also my mom's birthday so my brother in law Hiram and sister Aly made a delicious Mexican lunch/dinner. It was so nice to have everyone here and have our own place to escape to when we needed to.
