So might as well jump back to the holidays and catch up on some stuff since I don't really have many new things to report. As always, this is for my own posterity's sake; you really don't have to read it. Just look at the random photos.
I attended our traditional family FHE Christmas in early December. It's not quite like it used to be in my younger years (with luminarias lining the sidewalk and everyone coming over), but it's still excellent, always including a visit to the temple grounds to see the lights, hear the free musical performances and feel good about the holidays.
Never had I ever, ever, brought anyone that I was dating home for the holidays. Never. Gasp! That would be a big deal for me. But seeing how MCB and I grew up in the same town....yes, we both went home for the holidays. I hadn't seen him since our Thanksgiving trip to Utah, so once again, we had a nice little airport reunion.
blueberry farm. Hopefully someday my parents will finish their house out there; they've only been looking at plans for the last 6 years. It is quite pretty.
Tanner had lots of presents.
I got the glitter Toms that I wanted (thanks Tay and Court), along with almost everything else I asked for and even some awesome things that I didn't. Noise cancelling headphones, yay! Makeup, yay! A Kindle, yay! A travel pillow, yay!
We had the delicious prime rib for Christmas dinner, just like Grandma makes.
I spent the rest of the week at home visiting friends that I hadn't seen in a long time. Like Lindsay and Jana.
And I made Tanner help me with yet another 1000 piece puzzle, which was an awesome Christmas gift from my coworker. Dowdle Puzzles are really cool, and I got the London one which I absolutely love. Perfect gift idea! We finished it super late one night and headed to 'Taco Smell' for 4th meal. I love my bro.
