Salt Lake Lights

The weekend before Christmas we went to go see the lights in Temple Square in Salt Lake, it worked out great because it was the same time my brother was headed down to the airport to go home. We went down on Friday and went down to the square.

We didn't stay super long because it was getting pretty cold, but it was so good to get the chance to go, it had been a long time since I had been down there.
(I like this picture, even if the statue is cut off)

After the lights we stopped in Lehi at Porter's Place for dinner- it is a super fun hole in the wall place that serves non-alcholic mixed drinks that are called things like Rattlesnake Venom and The Lost Dutchman. It was my first time eating a whole meal there, usually we just order drinks and scones.
We stayed the night with my aunt and uncle in Orem and Saturday we went to IKEA before dropping Seth off at the airport. It was such a fun trip, I loved every minute of it. We were so lucky that the weather was so good for us to go this year.

Thanksgiving and Jackson, WY

Sorry I have no pictures of Thanksgiving- we had a good time though. My parents came and that morning we did a 5K with members or both Josh and I's families. Then we did two dinners one with my family and one with his. It was a fun week with my family around and a friend from high school that spent the weekend with us.

The week after Thanksgiving Josh's family goes to Jackson, we went up for the last couple days of it. Josh's mom and sister were nice enough to watch Sophie while Josh and I explored a little it was fun to have that time to just hang.

Apparently, pictures on this counter are common for Josh's sibling so we took a couple of Sophie. Eventually, I won't be so behind on this blog, sorry for now I am running about a month behind.

Arizona Trip

It's been so long since I posted- I am sorry, I just have been really busy. But in early November Sophie and I flew down to Arizona and met up with my dad to visit my grandpa. It was such a fun trip, I am so glad that we got the chance to go and that my dad was available to meet up with us.
Sophie liked to sit on the pouch with her grandpa and her great-grandpa to play with the two dogs. She loves dogs and it not scared at all. (I didn't get many pictures because I can't say the same about me and dogs).
We went to visit Tombstone, AZ and had a good time visiting the shops there. Soph was a good sport with all the driving we did.
My grandpa's wife is such a wonderful cook- they had so much good food for us.

Both my grandpa and his wife are wonderful at sewing (my grandpa has made us a couple of beautiful quilts) and when they heard I had been doing a little bit of sewing they decided that they would show me some tricks. We ended up making all these little shirts for her. The blue with the ballerinas are a set of pjs for her. Thank you grandpa for letting us come visit- we had a great time :)
