Vacay Part II

Our vacation did get lots better once we FINALLY made it to Idaho. We enjoyed great homemade food (something that we never get in our home), fun and laughter with family and being able to be completely lazy! On Sunday when we got there, we kind of just hung around for a little bit and then when to both set of Josh's grandparents' homes. There was tones of snow the whole time we were out there. It was really bad for a few days especially with the wind. Josh's brother, Andrew, and his family all came for the week too. I am not quite sure which day they came; you know how it is when your on vacation, you have no idea what day it is. But we did have a lot of fun with them. On Tuesday we went to Paige's (Josh's sister) violin recital! She did a great job and so did all the other kids. I think it was on Christmas Eve that we went to a museum that had tons of Christmas stuff on display. On Christmas Eve, some of Josh's extended family came over and we played a game then the younger kids acted out the Christmas story. Christmas Day was great. We got awesome thoughtful gifts and were able to stay in our PJs all day!!! Josh's family got a Wii for Christmas, so a lot of time was spent playing that! We also got to talk to Josh's brother, Chase, who is serving a mission in Des Moines, Iowa! It was great to talk to him and it sounds like he is doing a tremendous job out there! We really had a great Christmas and were very happy that we were able to spend it with family! I didn't really take a lot of pictures, but here are the ones I did take:

This is our niece, Rylee, and Josh's mom, Jill:

This is Rylee again in the Gingerbread house...She kept asking if she could eat the houses that were in display :)

This is Josh and his two brothers, Taylor and Andrew with the three wise men:

For Some reason I only get pictures of Josh when he isn't looking:


Rylee in her princess dress and shoes with Taylor:

What I thought was a beautiful sunset:

Rylee "smiling" and me:
