These are roads at about 6 am the morning after Christmas..We were planning to head to Littleton for Julina’s engagement party, but we had gotten over a foot of snow and didn’t want to deal with accidents and delays. So, we left at 2:30AM!
Rocky was pretty cramped at the kids feet, so he was pretty thrilled to take a break on Mom’s lap. All 75lbs of him =)
Now, THAT’S a plate of nachos! The girls chowing down at Casa Bonita.
We had a great three day mini-vacation with the Mannings/Narayans. We fit a lot in a short time too. We went to Julina and Nathan’s Party, went shopping, to see the new Star Wars movie, had some girls time/boys time and my favorite, all three couples stayed up and talked till almost the wee hours of the morning! SO FUN!
Yes, we all froze our behinds off, but it had been a long time since ALL of us had been together, so we had to get a photo!
A local production company performs the Nutcracker every year and it’s been 5 years since we’ve gone, so we decided we had to have a girls night out! It was enjoyed by all and they did a spectacular job. The sets and costumes were bright and beautifully done and the actors/dancers were equally impressive.
Our church always has a fun Christmas party and this year was no exception. Or maybe it was an exception because this year was the best one yet! It wasn’t the people or the food, it was the theme. We were to arrive in attire that would’ve been worn when the Savior was born and we “travelled to Bethlehem” to pay our taxes. While there, we ate pretty authentic food and sat on blankets we had brought while we enjoyed our fare.
After we sang some hymns of Jesus’ birth, a live nativity was performed.
Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus
