Travis and I were planning on heading up to Salt Lake on a Friday but there was a week when Cedar continually kept getting snow. We were nervous that there would never be a good time to head up there and we would had to just grin and bare and six hour drive up there. But then when we were out shoveling snow the day before our planned day to leave we noticed the sky started to turn blue and the sun was out. We checked out what the weather was like everywhere else and it was a beautiful day. So we quick packed everything up and headed up to Salt Lake a day early. As usual the drive was long-but it was a beautiful day, we had blue skies the whole way. The first week we were up in Salt Lake we stayed with my family at my parents house. We had such a good time keeping my sister company, who was very much under the weather, watching movies, playing video games, going to family parties, and doing other fun activities. Not to mention CHRISTMAS!!
It was a great Christmas for us. I wanted to get up at seven in the morning and run around like I was a crazy five-year old who just couldn't wait to open up her gifts but I didn't. I contained my excitement a couple hours longer and held out until everyone was ready. It was an exciting Christmas people. Travis had gotten my gift week and weeks ago and I had no idea. Last Christmas we picked out our own gifts for each other because we were completely clueless. I foolishly thought we were going to do the same thing until Travis had told me that he "actually already had my gift". I was shocked! Then he had to tell everyone what it was. There were some good reactions and so it was driving me crazy. Then a week before heading up to salt lake it was wrapped and next to the tree. I can't say under the tree cuz the box didn't fit (although keep in mind that our tree is only five feet tall). So anyway, I finally got to open my gift and it was a...CRICUT! For those of you who don't know what that is, it's a scrapbooking machine that is pretty much the coolest thing right now. Google it. I couldn't believe it, I was so surprised! Thank you Travis. I can't wait to start using it! My parents also went overboard and got me a sewing machine! Too cool. I'm very excited about getting to use that as well.
My oldest sister, Rebecca, and brother-in-law, Forrest, got Rock Band for their Wii and let me just tell you how cool it is! We played and played and so much fun with it. This is everyone in their rock stance-everyone but Brandon, I'm so bummed that I didn't get a picture of him playing the guitar, he was awesome on it though-
