Okay, so one of these is late, and one of these is early...
but school is kicking my butt!

First it was Cecilie's birthday last week!
She turned 21, again, and doesn't look a day older!
We love Ceci!
She's so talented.
She is the ultimate baker and sewer.
For her birthday she got the cake cricut!
She is so so talented!
If you ever need a wedding cake made, she is fabulous.

Happy Birthday Ceci!
Ceci and Joshie

Next, this is a little early,
but Saturday is our brother-in-law Jared's birthday!
We love Jared.
Jared is a great dad, husband and brother.
He's pretty athletic I guess.
He's decent at football.
Hahah, but seriously he's way athletic and pretty awesome at football.
But I could still beat him any day.
He's also fun to mess with.

Happy Birthday J-RAD, Mobious V!Bahaha!

We love you both!
You both look great at 21!
Not a day older.

Best Christmas present ever.
Alex got me this little watch for Christmas.
It's called a Nike Sportband.
It's great for running, it tells you your time, pace, distance, calories, everything.
This has been my partner in crime the past 2 weeks.
It makes me feel like an actual runner.

The next week of break we got to spend snowboarding with my family.
My dad and Kenny came back on Monday,
my mom and Christina arrived Tuesday night.
They drove all the way from Florida.

We went to Snowbasin, Brighton, and the Canyons.
We had a great time while they were here.
I really hope to live close to my parents someday.
I love them a ton.
But right now I'm so glad to have Kenny and Christina both out here.

Christina and I helping each other when we got stuck.
She's in the bright blue. I'm in the faded blue.

Another day at the Canyons.

We also got to celebrate New Years with my parents!
My dad was a party pooper and fell asleep.
Kenny and Jessika also came over.
So did Kevin and Gillian!
We played games and almost missed the countdown!

Giving mom a New Years kiss!
Kenny and Jessika!

Gillian and Kevin New Years kiss!
What great friends to ring in the New Year with.

Giving Alex a big SMOOCH in 2011!
So glad he'll always be my New Years kiss.

We had some great times while my family was here.
Especially when we were at Brighton and I almost lost toes I was so cold.
We had some great laughs and a ton of fun.

Can't wait for them to come here again.
Or maybe we'll go to sunny Florida.

I finally got my computer back!
So here is the update!

We spent Christmas this year in Parowan.
After finals were over we headed down for a week in P-town!

The first day we were there Alex helped his dad hang the Christmas lights
(a little late we know).
That evening we were supposed to go caroling.
They do it every Christmas.
Alex was so excited because he hasn't gotten to go in a long time.
Sadly, there was a giant snow storm.
And we were stuck inside.
But, we had a good dinner and had fun anyways!

On Tuesday, we attempted to go sledding.
It was a fail.

On Wednesday we went to Vegas with Alex's parents and Cami.
We spent the day shopping at the outlets.
That night we went to the Boise State vs. Utah game.
It was way fun.
We stayed the night in the Rio.
We walked around the casino and even gambled the dollar we had.
We doubled our starting wager.

Us at the game!
Dressed for Boise, of course.

We drove back to Parowan on Thursday.
The rest of the family showed up that night.

On Friday, Christmas Eve, we did a little last minute shopping in the morning.
When we got home we got ready and went to Alex's Aunt Noreen's for dinner.
They do the nativity every year but lately they haven't because Cade ruined it.
But I have never done it so I was excited!
I got to be Mary, and Alex was Joseph.
Our baby Jesus was played by Tyler.
Jared was an ass.
Preston and Janice were the shepherds.
Cade and Jacob were the wisemen.
Cami and Heath were the angels.
Here is a picture of the whole cast.

Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus.
We got home from Noreen's and all put on our pjs.
We wrapped some last minute gifts and it was off to bed.
Alex and I watched Four Christmases before we fell asleep.
It's one of our favorite Christmas movies.

The next morning we woke up and had Christmas!
It was a different Christmas than I was used to because Alex's family doesn't wrap their Santa gifts.
It was different but fun.
We got lots of goodies.
My parents are awesome and sent their gifts to Cheryl who wrapped them and brought them down.
It was a great suprise.

I was so excited for Alex to open my gift to him.
He's needed a new snowboard for so long!
He had no idea I was getting him one and he was so excited!

This was my favorite gift!
Alex got me a Nike Sportband which is awesome for running.
It tells you your pace, distance, time, calories burned, everything!
I use it all the time.
It was a great surprise!

The twinners got life jackets for Christmas!
We can't wait for this summer at Lake Powell!

This is on Christmas Day.
We went over to Alex's Aunt Marie's.
We are wearing some Christmas clothes.
Joshie was using one of Prestons toys.
He was the driver of the car.

Christmas day was long and tiring.
Tyler and I needed a diet coke to keep us going.

So fun with these boys on Christmas!
I can't wait until they're a little older and understand.

We had a great Christmas break.
We're so thankful we had to opportunity to spend a week with Alex's family.
It was a great break from school and Provo.
