Well Christmas has come and gone and I hope all had a great time.

We enjoyed spending time as a family then going to see our families - Mark has 2 brothers from out of state that came in so it was fun to see them. Then we went to my family and had lunch with them and was able to see my Aunt and some of my cousins.

It has been nice to have a 4 days off from work - Saturday we went to have family pictures taken with Mark's family - there were 44 of us!! I do have to say the place we went actually did a good job getting us placed and out of there without too many meltdowns. After that I was able to go with my sister and see some friends that I have not seen for about 5 or so years. So I have to say this weekend was a good one.

I hope you all have a great New Year!!!!

So far this month has been a good one, I have started working from home and it is WONDERFUL!!!!! We have been greatly blessed by this and I am truly thankful.

Justin turned 6!!!! Man they grow up fast. We had just the grandparent (and of course aunt Sheri) over for pizza, cake and ice cream. We had a great time.

Over the Holidays my family has some traditions that I love to do every year. Wego and see the lights at Temple Square the day after Thanksgiving. This year there were soooo many people there and I forgot my camera DUH so no pictures. Then The Festival of Trees and that is always fun to go to. I have learned over the years just to look at the trees and enjoy them and not read the stories, that way I do not come out of there crying. Another tradition we do is go to Ogden to El Matador for dinner and see the lights in the city center but this year with the storm coming and it being cold we decided to go to the El Matador in Bountiful for dinner and not go and see the lights. If you have never been to El Matador I highly suggest it - it has the BEST mexican food.

I hope we can all remember the true meaning of this time of season. I am truly grateful for all that we have been given this year and am grateful for the birth of our Savior. I hope you all have a safe and great Christmas.
