The boys both woke up sick on Christmas Eve morning. We kept things slow for most of the day, making cinnamon rolls and watching movies…
…but, unfortunately, they didn’t recover enough to attend our candle-light service. We were in charge of music for the evening, so Jim and Evelyn headed up the mountain for church.
Jim and Evelyn returned home around 6:30p for dinner and opening our traditional Christmas Eve gifts: an ornament, pajamas, and a book.
Thankfully everyone woke up feeling better Christmas morning, and we had a wonderful time opening gifts and eating cinnamon rolls and bacon.
The best part of day, however, was picking up my Mom from the airport. Jim took Evelyn and Jack skiing while James and I made the drive to Salt Lake City.
We had a wonderful week-long visit with Nana (except for two days of catching the boys’ mild tummy bug). It snowed nearly the entire week Nana visited, including a snow squall (a first for me). Here are some pictures from her time with us:
Mom headed back to Texas on New Year’s Day, which also happened to be clear and sunny (picture above). We look forward to her next visit! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, everyone!
