We had a very Merry Christmas and are enjoying the holidays so much!! We are feeling so blessed. Christmas time is a great time to look back at the past year and recognize and remember all our blessings and to see how much the gospel, family, and friends bless our lives. We've had such an intense past year and half getting moved up north and having Jay start and finish school through that time. He was gone to work from 8am every morning, and he went to night school, so he didn't return home until 9pm in the evenings. It made for very long days. He did awesome though and we have been so proud of him. He got a job so fast after he finished school and we know that job was a complete blessing. We are house hunting now and excited for what the future can bring. The kids are happy and doing so well in school and all else. They have awesome friends and it's also so much fun to be living up north and spending so much time with the northern cousins. We had an awesome Christmas with the kids and are loving that they are relaxing during this break from school. We have been enjoying the snow ...except not loving driving in it to work. Here is a little re-cap of our Christmas holiday.
