The Holidays Were Awesome

We were able to spend a week at home over Christmas. It was wonderful! Here are a few things that we did.

There was a blizzard in Des Moines a few days before we left.
It was crazy. EVERYTHING was shut down and people were told to just stay home.
Cannon went on his first airplane ride and did very well.
Cannon got to visit the blue turf of Boise State (inside the airport).
We made a "gingerbread" house. Tradition!
We acted out the nativity.
We played with Cannon. He was so spoiled by all the attention!
There was always someone wanting to hold him.
We read stories with Grandpa Dave.
We opened presents.
Celebrated Cannon's first Christmas!

Took naps.
Blessed Cannon
Celebrated Sean's 18th birthday!
Went out to dinner. We also saw Les Miserables. Incredible!
We celebrated the new year back in Des Moines.
As usual, our trip was much too short. We loved every minute of being home and being with family.
