Merry Christmas 2008

We went to Las Vegas on Wednesday the 17th for a couple appointments and to sign the paperwork for our "new" house on base. We are so excited and can't wait to move in. But we are also really enjoying being able to be with family for the holidays. It's been really fun to have other people around and to show the kids off. Going to Virginia by myself was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I am so thankful for the blessings of the Lord. I see them in my life every day. The Lord has blessed our family in many ways. I hope that I can bless others in the way I have been blessed.

We came back to Kanab for a couple days, then on Monday we drove to Orem to visit Aunt Kelley, Uncle Damon and Elena. We dropped Aunt Mariah off with them, then headed to Temple Square to meet up with my sister and her kids. Savanna and AJ had a blast playing with Raquel, Isaac and Miguel. It was very fun to stay at Jose's parents house and for the kids to have a little bit of time to play together! Thanks Benites'!!!

On Tuesday we went to visit my Grandpa Crowther's sister. I haven't seen Aunt Valeea for over 5 years, so that was very good to be able to visit with her for a few minutes. And snap a couple photos!

Right after that, we headed back to Orem to pick up Mariah and then head back to Kanab before it got dark and cold (icy). We got home just about 1/2 hour after the sun went down. It was a whirlwind of a trip, but well worth being able to visit cousins!

We hope everyone has been as blessed this year as we have been. I can see the hand of the Lord in everything and everyday. Merry Christmas!

Snow, snow, and more snow!!!!!

Savanna didn't want to sit with Santa, so we just got a picture with AJ!

We made a gingerbread house that we bought while we were down in Las Vegas on Wednesday.

On our way back from Las Vegas, we stopped in Hurricane for the night because the weather was really bad. The next morning, AJ was walking in the snow with his cup of cherrios.

AJ dancing!

More dancing
