Northwest Christmas

Keith and I spent Christmas week with my family in Puyallup. It was so wonderful to be with family. Everyone was there minus Joe who is at the end of his church mission in Russia. We all talked with him on the phone on Christmas and it was great.

Alex cleaning the chimney. We also trimmed and gave shots to the sheep. I don't have any pictures of that because I was busy sticking needles in unhappy sheep.

It wasn't all work and no play though. While in Puyallup we also went on some hikes in the woods, made Christmas cookies and other goodies, and played Beetles Rock Band. Mom was the star on vocals. She still remembers all the words to all of the songs from back in her teenage Beetle-mania days.

The week after Christmas we spent a few days cross-country skiing in the northern Cascades. Fun (and very cold) times.
Mom and Dad still smoochy after 31 years.

We got back to Provo New Year's eve and spent the evening with Keith's family.

Happy New Year to everyone! We hope you have enjoyed your holidays!

Awww, I love your family. The pic of you and Keith is especially cute, though it made me shiver looking at all that snow in my bare feet! I'm glad you had a wonderful Christmas. Happy New Year!
