This year we almost skipped out on our Salt Lake Christmas trip due to a nasty fever and croup. Stinky sickness! Luckily my mom took us in. There's nothing like being with your Mom when your kids are sick. Love You Mom! Normally I don't take my kids ANYWHERE if their sick but when family calls---you'd better come! Sooooo glad I did because it beats sitting home alone. Unfortunately we couldn't visit with Chad and Karen's family because we didn't want to get Cooper sick before his tonsilectomy. So instead we planned a conference call with both of my brothers. We also planned a dinner out with my Dad which is always fun. I miss you tons Dad!!! Brandon's family begged us to drop in to our Boulter Christmas party which we did for about an hour...we'd planned on skipping the whole thing so it was a nice surprise and fun to see everyone happy and well.
When we returned home, we invited Mr. B over to help us make carmels for our neighbors. I didn't expect him to get right in there and stir for what seemed like an eternity...but he did. I had to get proof.
Kimmie and Luki came for Christmas! We enjoyed Christmas Eve dinner at Craig and Peggy's, a little drive to see the lights, then home to open one gift under the tree. Christmas day was one big lazy fest. We were even lazy with the gift opening. We probably finished around noon. After Taya's and Kimmie's naps and Brandon's game playing, we made our luminaries for the front stairs and ate our Christmas dinner - Salisbury Steaks with Mashed Potatoes, Zuchini Casserole and Biscuits... holy yumminess!
