Christmas was nice this year. It was full of family and fun times. Since we had been up to Idaho the weekend before Christmas, we were able to make it to Nate's extended family's Christmas Eve party. Nate and I got up early to go over and help his mom make rolls for the party, I think we made well over 20 dozen. There was a ham lunch, a recorded nativity, and a slide show at the party. Later that night we had a hot chocolate party with Nate's immediate family and our annual gift exchange. It was a long and busy day so we crashed at like 9 pm. Usually Nate is up around 5 am on Christmas morning ready to open gifts and start the day, but he actually let me sleep in til 7:30 am this year. So nice. Nate and I always spend Christmas morning just the two of us, a tradition we started so we could have special moments with our kids on Christmas morning. After our morning together, we trekked through the new snow to visit Nate's parents. We had a prime rib and potato dinner and were able to Skype with our favorite missionary, Nate's brother Aaron. He'll be home in about 9 months and we can't wait to hug him! Like I said, we had a nice Christmas and now I'm a little sad that the holidays are over, especially since Nate and I are both sick. Here's to 2015!

Our poor tree. This was it's last year with us. Some sections of the lights don't light up any more and the tree has seen better days over the last 8 Christmases.

Cute Nate, always so excited on Christmas morning.
