Snow Trip

So in order to make up for the fact that I didn't get to go see my family this Christmas, we headed to the snow to give me a little taste of home. We took Brecken and Tim's mom, Julie, up to Sierra Summit for a day of skiing & snowboarding. It was Brecken's 1st time, of course, and let's just say he took a while to "warm up" to the whole thing.

If you turn your sound on, you can hear Brecken screaming all the way down the bunny hill while I run alongside saying, "Isn't this fun??"

Overall, it was a great trip. It was fun to get back out on the slopes, it makes me feel young & cool again...that is until I slid 100 ft down a sheer ice face of the mountain. It was pretty scary because I could not stop, no matter how hard I tried to dig in my edge and it was pretty steep. At one point as I slid down, I couldn't see anything except a little edge that I was headed for. I didn't break anything, but I'm a little sore.

Secret Santas

We just want to say a heartfelt "Thank You" to our Secret Santas (I hope you're reading this)!

We loved having Secret Santas, awaiting your knock every night and hopefully giving you enough time before we opened the door. I loved that each night's gift was related to a scripture about the "real" Christmas story and the way you gave us a tree the 1st night and adorable little ornaments each night after that was so creative. Thank you so much for making our Christmas so wonderful!


Brecken had a great time at our ward Christmas party and he was so excited about Santa that he sat on his lap twice!
