The last few weeks have been a whirlwind for our family. We have managed to celebrate not one, not two, but three Christmas', two birthdays, New Year's and our 5th Anniversary! We made it home Christmas Eve where we started the festivities with Christian's family. We helped in the annual making of gnocchi, a favorite, visited, read the Christmas story, and opened our Christmas pj's. Then it was off to visit my family. We had some finger foods and just relaxed. Christmas day we opened gifts with my family, had breakfast, got ready and headed to Lovell. We also got to talk to Christian's brother who is in the Republic of Georgia on his mission. After lunch and gifts there, we stopped by Grandma Dorothy's house to say hi and then headed to Powell for dinner. I swear, we eat every 2-3 hours during the holidays at home...not a good thing! We were truly spoiled by everyone! The rest of our trip was full of running around visiting everyone. We had so much fun and it always seems like time flies by too fast! It was so much fun to see everyone and can't wait to see them soon! Sorry about all the pictures and the fact that they aren't in order!
