Christmas 2008


Well I can't believe Christmas has come and gone already! Since we spent Thanksgiving at home with family we decided to have a very laid back Christmas. I worked the night before and Ryan surprised me with Christmas breakfast when I got home. We opened a few gifts then took a much needed nap. Later in the day we made Christmas dinner together and learned the consequence of not giving the turkey enough time to defrost :) This is our first Christmas not spent with our families but thanks to my dad, brother, mother in law, and Ryan we all got our webcams up and working and got to see and talk to them. It was very cool and it felt like we were there with them. I highly recommend it to all you out of staters!

We put up a red themed tree in honor of the Utes and went with the "old traditional" look for our $10 real tree

We realize that we are very blessed and lucky to live the lives that we do. We are sure grateful to have loving families and great friends who think of us and spoil us often. We appreciate all the fun cards and thoughtful gifts we've received . We love you guys! Merry Christmas!

You look great for just working a graveyard! And your tree looks awesome for a $10 tree - what a steal! I'm jealous you had a real one.

Glad that you had a relaxing Christmas. We have that same UTES tree ornament-it hangs front & center-love it. I loved getting your Christmas card and letter- thank you. And I'm so glad that you had a traditional Utah celebration for the game (that game was A-MAZ-ING!!!). I'm jealous of Karly.
