I think we had one of our best Christmas/New Years yet! We were able to finacially help a couple of families in our immediate family this year and it felt so wonderful!I hope we will be able to do that again.It was the best feeling and really good for the kids to learn about the gift of giving.
James's whole family came up for the holidays and we had such a wonderful time with them even through the freezing temperatures.We had 3 families staying with us. I was a little concerned it might get to crazy,but everyone helped with cleaning and cooking and it turned out to be one of the best times ever spent with them. We went on the Trax and went to Temple square and saw the Beautiful temple lights,we went sledding a few times,movies,shopping,went to Classic skating and The Mayan. Even had an Adult night out and went to one of our favorite restaurants, The Trio Cafe and then to a movie with the help of Caston and my 2 nieces Lizzy and Victoria watching the younger kids.
The kids had alot of fun with their cousins and aunts and uncles playing in the snow building forts and going in the jucuzzi.They were so funny,they would run to the jucuzzi outside in the snow,barefeet mind you, get in the jucuzzi, then get out of the jucuzzi jump on the snow filled trampoline then run around the back yard and jump right back in the jucuzzi. It was one of the funniest things youve seen,seeing them laughing the whole time.What it would feel like to be a kid again!
So fun! I am so grateful for these wonderful memories that were created this holiday season and for all that we have. I am truely blessed and truely grateful.
