Happy Birthday, Papa!

On Sunday we celebrated my Dad's birthday. It was so fun to spend time with family, and see him open his presents. The big present this year was an ipod touch. He's been talking about getting a palm pilot to load the scriptures on. But good luck trying to find one of those now a days. Anyway, so Trey, being the techie he is, loaded the standard works for him, and he's been playing with it ever since. You think I would have gotten some pictures of it, but no. The only ones we got were of Ella enjoying some birthday cake and ice cream. Hilarious!!!

Christmas, a month later...

It's almost been a month since Christmas, so it seems a little silly to post about it, but we had so much fun,so here goes. We spent Christmas in Mesa this year with my family. Ella was so much fun this year, as I'm sure you can imagine. Her big gift from my parents was here new play kitchen, and then Trey and I gave her a stroller to push all her little babies around in, she's such a girl. I LOVE it! After she got the two big gifts, it was a major chore to make her open the rest, so I guess we've learned our lesson for next year. We had family pictures taken too, thanks to the amazing talents of Becki Crosby. Thanks again girl, they turned out so great!

The day after Christmas, after a very plentiful shopping trip with the girls, we made the trip up to Springerville to be with Trey's family. Let's just say, I'm thankful we survived the trip. After the road closers, ice and much more scariness, we finally made it there 7 hours later, at 3am. Fun times. We visited, and ate, and opened presents, and ate, and even had the super cute kidos act out our navivity this year, and then we ate some more. All in all, our Christmas was great, and we're so thankful for such great families, on both sides.

Today's Mission...

Ok, I know it's been a while. I've been needing to update about Christmas for a while, but I can't find my camera ANYWHERE!!! I'm kinda freaking out, since I'm one of those people who keeps all my pictures on my memory card and never erases them, so that when something like this happens I might potentially lose them all. YIKES!!! So, either it's somewhere right under my nose and I'm just not seeing it, or we're in serious trouble. Cross your fingers for me :)
