A Shamefully-Late Christmas Post


First of all, I apologize for neglecting my blog for my real and non-cyber life. Yes, I missed primo blogging opportunities in December, January, and a week's worth of February, but hey, here I am with a post to blow your mind. Haha.

So, Christmas and New Year's were amazing. We flew back to Utah and had the best time. For one thing, after a week or so of warm-ish weather we woke up Christmas morning to a beautiful fresh-fallen (falling) snow. Some things are just so magical.

On Christmas we talked to not one, but three missionaries! Jeff's sister Skyped  from from Malawi (in the Zambia Lusaka mission), my brother Skyped from Paris, and his best friend/pseudo brother, Arturo Skyped twice from Puebla in Mexico. I am so inspired by the incredible work they are all doing. By the way, if you would like to learn more about Mormon missionaries click here.

Over the break we watched a ton on movies. My favorites were Unbroken and Into the Woods.

We had a whole bunch of family parties and a baby shower hosted by Jeff's mother Michelle. It was really great to see so many people Jeff and I love. My goodness people are generous. We are super grateful (and excited about this baby!).

So... Here are some pictures!

The Piano Guys in concert! Thanks for the great tickets, Grandma!
Making dinner with the family; more specifically, Jeff''s manly hands

I nagged my sweet husband into taking one of those prego pictures...
My MIL is an amazing chef. This is some sort of brie-crushed pineapple-coconut-almond concoction.

Cute things abound at my in-law's.  

One of my favorites...
Christmas Eve Temple Square tradition! 

I don't know what these were for, but they looked pretty cool. :)
There you go. I feel very humble as a blogger and will post waaay more regularly from now on! :)
