SNOW SNOW SNOW--Our Holiday Recap

The holidays were a lot of fun for me and Jason. We traveled 12 1/2 hours each way to Rexburg and spent some time with Jason's family. It was great getting to know the in-laws and my neice and nephew a little better. I loved being in Rexburg. In a way, it was kind of like going home when I couldn't go home.

We spent our time playing games like Munchkin, San Juan, Settlers of Catan, Boxers and Briefs, Phase 10 Dice, Scene It (Harry Potter, Movies 2, and Friends) and Clue DVD (most of our entertainment was provided by Emily and Lyle...Thanks for letting us borrow the games). I really recommend all of these games. They were a ton of fun.

The PS2 seemed like it was always on--until the end when my brother in law bought a X-Box, then that was always on. I think that all the boys would have been bored to death if there was no Guitar Hero, Hot Shots Golf, Tekkin, Ultimate Alliance and Halo to play.

Jessica, Julie and I went to Porter's like 3 times. I think that this is Jason's worst nightmare...me at a craft store. I love Porter's...it has everything. I just wish that I had more money to spend there. Jessica has started beading, so she used us as guinea pigs and made us necklaces. I love mine! I just might have to start beading too.

I have been on the waiting list to get Twilight at the library now for a few months. My sister-in-law, Julie, finally convinced me just to buy it, SO I did. I haven't started to read it yet, but I can't wait to get started.

For Christmas, I made Bruce and Sue a tree skirt. I love how it turned out. It is perfect with their tree decor.We got to go to the Open House for the Rexburg Temple. It was so gorgeous. I can't wait to be able to go after it is dedicated. It was amazing to see the temple in Rexburg. It is the dominate building there. I was amazed at how much it stood out and for how many miles you can see it.

Jason got me this print for Christmas. It is a Simon Dewey. I love it. I can't wait to put it up in my house.
We hope that everyone's holidays went well. We are looking forward to having a great 2008--full of adventure and joy.

that sounds so fun! But I wish you were here... it just wasn't the same. Not everyone was there and everyone could feel it. I'm glad you had fun though... can't wait to see your boy!! LOVE YOU!!

I am glad you had a good christmas in Idaho. We all really missed you in New York this year. Hopefully we can all be together for Christmas next year (if I can convince Lyle).

Yeah! Welcome back. It sounds like you guys had a fabulous time in Rexburg. I mean, come on...it's Rexburg...how could you not have a fabulous time?!

I love all the crafts. The beads look fun, and your tree skirt turned out beautifully. Did you finish your Christmas quilt you were working on? I'd love to see how it looks.
