LOVE Hellos Hate Goodbyes

We have been very blessed, and busy, the last three months with so many visitors.

In January, my sister, Emily and her girls, Natalie and Ava, flew to Utah and surprised us with a week long visit. It was the best surprise EVER!!! I had no idea. Drew and Kyra had so much fun playing with Nat and Ava, and Emily and I loved being together. We were so sad to say goodbye. Here's some pictures from when they were here.

In February, my in-laws came and spent time with us. They got to see Drew play hockey, see his school,and see Kyra's school. I also took them out to Antelope Island. The kids loved playing with Gma and Gpa; they did not want them to go home. It was great having them visit.

In March, Mike's brother Mark and his wife Kristen came to visit us. It was yet another great visit. Mike was able to take 2 days off, so that was really nice being all together. We drove them up to Trapers Point (not sure if that's what it's called) and to Snow Basin. They too got to see Drew play hockey and loved seeing the kids' schools. Mike took Mark to Bear Lake snowmobiling; and they had an awesome time. Today, we had to say goodbye to our last visitors. Like I said, we are very blessed to have made some great memories. We miss you already!!!

It's hard to believe that Christmas is really over. We had a wonderful Christmas in Utah. It was the first Christmas that we have EVER spent away from our families in MN. Christmas Eve, we met some friends and their families up at Snow Basin for a yummy dinner, Santa coming down the mountain on a snowmobile, a torch light parade of skiers, and fire works. It was a lot of fun! Christmas day, we opened Santa gifts and stayed home to play with the new toys.

December has been a fun and busy month for us. Both kids have had Christmas programs at school. We are excited to stay home in UT for Christmas this year, but we will miss our being with our family.

Halloween, Hockey, and Field Trip

We spent Halloween night with some great friends trick-or-treating in their neighborhood. It was a very fun night. I wished it hadn't rained, but overall, it was fun! Drew started hockey two Saturdays ago. He's really liking it and doing well. Kyra had a field trip with her 3 year old preschool class to the local fire station. She was very shy but had a great time.

The Spirit of Halloween

Last night, Mike and I had the privilege to attend the Davis County Gala ~ Mystery Manor. We had a wonderful night out.

This morning Drew's kindergarten class did a Halloween parade around his school. Kyra and I were so glad we were able to participate with Drew.

I took the kids to a favorite location and took some really neat pictures of them in their 2010 Halloween costumes.
