Christmas in St. George

I am SO sad Christmas is over!  I love the Christmas season...but my birthday is next month so we can't be too bummed right?  My goal is to not let go of the Christmas spirit.  I hope to continue to grow closer to my Savior and serve everyone I can!
We went down to St George for Christmas and I was soooo excited!!  Our first 2 Christmas's were spent with Eric's family which was wonderful and so fun!  I love them (I'm so lucky to have such great families!) but having moved away from St George I was ready to go back with Eric!  I, of course, took hardly any pictures.  Shame on me...I need to get better at that!  But we had such a great time!  I loved spending time with my family and seeing some faces I hadn't seen in awhile.  Our next trip down I'm planning on spending lots of time with our friends that we miss so much down there!
Some highlights from our Christmas break are:  Hanging out with family of course!  Christmas Eve breakfast...one of our traditions :)  Driving around looking at Christmas lights and hearing the Nativity story at the Temple.  Watching good movies and eating goood food.  Opening gifts and then playing with them :)  Eating good food...again.  That part was non-stop.  It's safe to say that when I eat so much good food and go to bed sick each night...I'm getting OLD!  Ah!

We do matchy shirts for Christmas eve instead of Pj's.  Ok... so this tradition just started this year but it's a good one right?!
St. George Temple, Baby Jesus, and Zoo-lander wannabe for a husband.  I don't know why he keeps pulling this face?  Or why he'd want to be like Zoolander?  Zoolander=stupid.  Yup.
Merry Christmas!  That pile by us is only the beginning of our spoils!

Eric and I were SO spoiled this year!  Some fun things we received were an iHome on steroids haha.  Wireless speakers you can stick in multiple rooms.. I'm so excited to sing my lungs out and dance where ever I am in our home :)  Digital picture frame, Inception (who wouldn't be excited about this movie?!) gift cards, home decor, clothes, shoes and so much more!  Eric got lots of Boston Red Sox paraphernalia which he loves!  And I got perfume, make up, and warm accessories which I love!  Santa brought all of us kids remote control cars.  Seriously!  Trevor's and Eric's are big and can practically walk!  Mine and Alycia's are so small the look like a mouse haha.  Who would've thought remote control cars would keep 20-something year old kids entertained?!  Santa thought ;)  Thank you to everyone who spoiled us this year!!  (Including you babe.. you're too good to me!)
I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and that we all have a Happy New Year! :)

P.S. Even though my birthday is just one short month after Christmas...let's not forget about it!  :)  I love to be spoiled with love from everyone!  That means:  Texts, phone calls, facebook shout-outs, extra nice comments on the blog.. hehe ;)
