Christmas 2011

K and I have had a great Christmas! We drove down on Thursday afternoon, and will be leaving to go back home tomorrow. We were lucky this year - well, should I say blessed and spoiled. Kyle and I used the money we were given wisely and were able to get a ton of things! 

We... Visited Temple Square, stayed at Nate and Mel's, went to Sherlock Holmes with Jess and Alan, did some Christmas shopping, spent time with kiddos and Mom and Dad, watched It's a Wonderful Life, read Luke 2 with the family, opened presents with the kiddos on Christmas morning, went to Nate and Mel's church, had Christmas lunch, opened presents with Mom and Chari, had Christmas dinner, went to the Bishop (Kyle's mom's family) family party, spent a day in Price visiting the Hanson side of the family, spent the night in Scofield at Uncle Dennis's cabin (where Kyle was able to go shooting), spent more time with Charity and mom, and altogether just had a great time.
We loved celebrating Christmas was our families, and are glad that we could spend more time down here than we originally planned. We also really enjoyed that Christmas was on a Sunday so that we were able to go to Church on Christmas Day and enjoy a lovely program full of Christmas songs.

And now... Enjoy a modge podge of pictures from our Christmas week.
