Christmas!!

We were so excited to spend Christmas with my family up in Flagstaff this year. We haven't been up here for Christmas in a couple of years so we were more than ready to come up!! We were excited that there was a little snow on the ground! Nothing like a white Christmas! We spent Christmas Eve busy with family traditions....clam chowder and 'It's A Wonderful Life'.






My parents surprised us with a trip to this resort up in Southern Utah.








There was so much snow up there. It was BEAUTIFUL!! We went snowmobiling the first day we were up there. This was one of the trails we went on....


.....and this is the first time we crashed. Let me tell you...it's hard getting a 500 pound snowmobile out of 3 feet of soft powder.











After we finally got unstuck we found this huge, open field that we rode around in for awhile. It was a blast.












This was the view at the top of the mountain. We drove our snowmobiles right up the the edge of this cliff. It was so beautiful!!


We also went shooting. I actually shot this can which was surprising because I have terrible aim!!





We played lots of games, played in the snow and ate lots of food!! It was a great trip and a great way to spend Christmas!!! Thanks Mom and Dad!!!!

How fun. I am sad we weren't able to get out to flagstaff this year. We are planning a summer trip instead.

I haven't seen a picture of Parker in forever. Alex too for that matter! How fun!
