Christmas and New Years

What a great holiday! We really had a blast. Here are the images to prove it!

Just before christmas, we made a bunch of personalized cookies for our neighbors for our FHE activity. (including some "BYU" themed cookies for our misguided Ute neighbors)

One of the highlights was the time we spent up in Brekenridge Colorado. We got to stay in this amazing condo in exchange for listening to a condo presentation. The "presentation" ended up only being 5 minutes long. We told the presenter that we really weren't interested because my parents own lots of timeshares, so we don't need to buy because they give us time, so we got sent on our way! What a good deal!

Up in Breckenridge we went to a Childrens museum that was a blast! Lots of fun creative things to play with. Here is a picture of the little medical center in one corner of the museum.

We also did a little sledding.

On Christmas morning Sam finally got to open his "Mack" from the movie cars. He has been looking forward to this for months!

Marcia pulled a fast one and totally surprised me with Guitar Hero for the Wii. She told me it was for my dad when she bought it and I totally believed her. I also got DDR.

Sam and Grandma working on the Gingerbread house.

Marcia, along with the nurses from Thailand and Lebanon gathered to make a Christmas-ornament factory powered by foreign labor. It was fun to meet these girls and they just loved pampering Marcia when she was not feeling well.

Heroscape was a definite theme on the trip. We played it at least once a day. This is how we ushered in the new year, with a wild game of Heroscape. Way to take them out Sudema. Thanos ain't got nothing.

Right before we drove back to Utah, we went the Aquarium in denver. Dad works there as a volunteer diver. He was a crackup. He did back flips to show off, waved to all the kids and scared Sam and Jensen.
