We are now back in warm sunny Georgia after a nice week in a half vacation to see family and friends in Utah for Christmas. We had a blast spending time with the family singing Christmas songs, eating lots of food, playing with all the nephews and nieces,there was about 35 people in one house, building a 9 foot tall Snowman, seeing the movie 7 pounds, visiting friends with new babies, and enjoying the snowy weather and big mountains. It was so nice to catch up on whats happening with everyone in the family. We wandered about Alex being overwhelmed with all the people, there was probably about 35 people including kids in one house. But Alex did great, He loved the attention and loved running around with all his cousins. It took us 1 1/2 hour to build the snowman but it was fun.

I haven't had much to blog about lately but here's the update on whats been going on with us the past 2 weeks... We had a couple of visitors, Devon's dad and step mom stayed with us for one day. We enjoyed watching the BYU vs UTAH football game together, dinner, and talking about good times. It was a quick visit but it was really nice to see family and spend some time with them. They even brought alex a new toy a Jack in the box, Alex was so excited to play with it. Devon, Alexander, and I went over to our friend Navy Adam's house. It was fun. They have a little farm with chickens, pigs, goats, cats and a big yard to run around in. Alex enjoyed walking around looking at all the different animals and playing with Adam's 7 month old little girl Cassie. We took Alex to see Santa even though it was pouring down rain outside. We walked over to the Apartment Manager's office where they had a pretty decorated Christmas tree and Santa sitting in a big chair letting little kids come sit on his lap. We usually go to the mall and get pictures with santa there but this year we were lucky to be able to take our own pictures, plus it was Free. I'm always up for free stuff. Santa even told Devon And I that we are never to old to sit on Santa's lap so we even joined in the fun by getting our picture with santa. Santa had a real beard too. This coming weekend we are looking forward to flying back to our hometown in Logan Utah for Christmas. It will be great to see family and friends. I'll end our blog with pictures. I hope that ya'll have a wonderful Christmas Holiday and a very Happy New Year! Be Safe and remember what the true meaning of Christmas is all about. We love Ya'll and have a Merry Christmas!
