Celebrating Christmas with family was just what we needed!  Thomas was able to make a snowman, even if it was only 11 inches tall...check.  And he has faith that Santa can find him anywhere.  Taylor and Amanda saw (according to them) countless swarms of good looking potential dates.  And Michael and I enjoyed watching our kids enjoy their aunts, uncles and cousins...we felt blessed.  Utah's weather was unseasonably warm with little snow.  Thank goodness for the man made kind, which allowed us to go tubing at Soldiers Hollow in Midway.  Between seeing the lights at Temple Square and eating all kinds of delicious treats in both Salt Lake and Utah county we felt like our trip was memorable.  The highlight for us was escorting Taylor through the Mt Timpanogos Temple, so he could take out his endowments surrounded by family from both sides.  Christmas 2011 was a high water mark for this family.

 We're trying to get back into the swing of things here.  Of course it would be going so much better if my kids weren't trying to convince us to move back to Utah...every second of the day!  Hopefully your Christmas was just as memorable!
