Our Christmas vacation started in AZ (Warm and Comfy) but quickly moved to Salt Lake City Utah (Freezing Cold and not so Comfy). For those of you that didn't get a christmas card... see below for a family picture... it's was the best we could do.
Utah was... Cold! But the kids loved every minute of playing in the snow and sledding. Lizzy and Mitchell couldn't get enough and Madeline tolerated the sledding. Noah's cold coping method was to promptly fall asleep anytime we went outside.
I think he just didn't want to deal with it.
We talked Sarah into sledding with us a few times.
Noah grew a lot on this 3 week journey.
He has begun babbling more and smiling and laughing a lot.
Our kids look surprisingly awake on this Christmas morning photo considering they didn't go to sleep until 4:00 AM. They got up promptly at 6:30. Needless to say there were some melt downs later in the day... after the sugar high wore off.
Mitchell discovered if he pulled Noah around in this little
sleigh he would stop crying and fall deep asleep.
Sarah found any excuse she could to get out walking even when it was freezing. Behind her you can see the hill we would go sledding on.
We took a horse drawn carriage ride in downtown Salt Lake City to see the Christmas lights.

Lizzy got some new books from Santa and really enjoys when mom reads to her.
