our first christmas!

we had a very merry christmas! it was a busy but fun day!
we started the day off waking up at seven and opening up our christmas from each other. santa spoiled me rotten!!! connie and george came over and watched us open our presents! kars got me a cricut! i love it. i love him! i gave kars a muzzle loader!
than we went over to connie and georges and opened up presents there! santa once again spoiled me rotten! i got a sewing machine! im very excited to learn! kars got lots and lots of much needed shoes. work boots. church shoes. awesome flip flop shoes. thank you connie and george!
after that we headed up to pooper and papa's (kars grandma and grandpa!) and ate an awesome brunch and opened up presents. i was stuffed!
after we made the drive up to alpine! luckly the roads were not too bad! my mom and dad gave us a wheat grinder, food storage, a camp chef, and a dutch oven. we are so excited to finally have a start on food storage! its not something kars and i cant really spend money on so we are so so thankful for it! im excited to try my wheat grinder out! thank you mom and dad!

Merry Christmas you two! My mom said that I should thank you for my cricut because you told her what one to get- so thanks! Linzy, I think mandee and I are going to plan a scrapbooking day so we will let you know when so you can come too!

Linzy! I am so excited that you got a sewing machine! I remember once when you were at my house and my mom was sewing and you said, "well my family does NOT sew." And now look at you, you're going to be threading the world. Maybe one of these weekends, I will need to come visit you in Nephi and we can make some cool project. Sorry I missed you at Nat's wedding- I was hoping I would see you at Katie's but no such luck. Happy New Year!
