We were given a surprise blessing this year- Jeff was given the week of Christmas off from work! We decided to take advantage of the time and headed to Utah to visit his side of our family. The drive was not too bad and the weather was beautiful. There wasn't any snow to play in, but we had a great time anyway.
We went ice skating.
The kids enjoyed being at their grandparents.
My sister Shelly came to visit with her cute kids! We went swimming and got to go for a run together!
Emily did a great job skating on her own.
Even Bryce started getting the hang of it!
Dallin is very cute with his "little" cousins!
We were able to watch some of Jeff's aunts and uncles (and his dad!) perform some songs for their dad!
Emily loved having girl cousins to play with!
It went too fast, but it was a great break from normal life. I am so lucky to have married into such a great family! They have always made me feel so loved and accepted. I am also grateful that my sister made the drive to come see us! I always love any time with her. It is fun to watch her as a mom.
