Dinosaurs in Vegas!

We took a quick trip to St. George and Vegas after Christmas. It was good to get away and enjoy time with my mom and dad and Steve's dad and family. Krista's family came too and it was fun to have the grand kids with us. Brooklyn loves Great Grandpa's singing fish and had a wonderful time with Dallin. Dallin is such a good cousin and watched out for her. The highlight of our trip was an excursion to the Natural History Museum in Las Vegas. I love that museum and it holds great memories of taking all my little preschool kiddies there. It was fun to take Brooklyn and to see how much it has changed.

Looking at all the cool fish with Grandpa!

Brooklyn was brave touching the snake skin.

Look how strong Brooklyn is.

Christmas is my most favorite time of year! I love all the family time and the spirit that is associated with the Christmas Season. We celebrated Christmas early with Shauna and Sam as it was their year to go to Alton. We got to have everyone else over for a short Christmas Eve program and lots of yummy treats. We enjoyed having Daniel and Nicole even though they were supposed to be in AZ but because of the baby were "stuck" with us. Christmas Morning we went to Krista's and Chris' first and watched the girls open presents and played. Brooklyn and I made Kneaders yummy French Toast for everyone and then we headed off to church with Daniel and Nicole. After that we came to our house to open more presents and enjoy each others company. Later we went to Daniel and Nicole's for a yummy Ham and potatoe dinner. It was Nicole's first ham and it was very delicious. We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful, loving family who enjoys spending time together. I LOVE MY FAMILY!
