Thanks for the last minute sledding Teresa. It was fun. I think this will do it for my ONE outing per year into the snow. :) I wish...
It doesn't feel like Christmas again this year. These past two Christmases without Aaron here have made it difficult to get into the spirit of Christmas. I am hoping this coming week we can do things to make sure we get into that spirit... in remembrance of the birth of our Savior. We did finally get our tree decorated. We just did a little each day until it was done. I kept getting overwhelmed, so we broke it up into a few days. I loved getting the Nativity put up. That is my favorite part each year in the decorating. Merry Christmas to all...

Fun. I love that huge hill at the 16th ward building. Seeing all of these picture is getting me so anxious to get there.
We are opening presents this morning in preparation for coming. Funny huh.

You are one hot mama in those pics. I would love to go sledding but it is like 2 degrees right now.

Looks like a fun sledding trip! Aaron Jr has grown up so much this past year. Your family sledding picture is really cute. Cute pictures and I hope this Christmas will bring with it some peace for you. Love you.

Looks like a fun day enjoying the snow! We don't get it where I live in Cali, and I have to say that I missi it at Christmas time!
I'm glad that you are getting Christmas put up little by little. The Savior is truly the most precious gift that each of us can have....His birth, His life, and especially His atonement that allows each of us eternal life and the chance of our forever families. May you feel His love for you at this Christmas time and always.
