My first white Christmas!

This year, I spent Christmas in Rexburg, Idaho with Jared and his family. I told Jared that if we were going to Rexburg, then we better have a white Christmas. We arrived in Rexburg on Saturday and there was already snow all over, so I was pretty excited. Sunday passed with little change in the conditions. But Monday, we had an awesome snowstorm. Imagine my excitement at getting so much snow on Christmas Eve! It snowed and snowed and snowed and I loved it! We enjoyed the winter weather on Christmas Eve by going for a horse-drawn sleigh ride. What better way to enjoy a first white Christmas?

Christmas Day brought no new snow, but all of the snow from the day before made for some great sledding! We took inner tubing to the extreme, Evel Kneivel style. When all was said and done, I would have to say it was a highly successful white Christmas experience!

After Rexburg, we went to Utah to visit with my family there. They had also gotten a ton of snow on Christmas Eve, so the winter fun continued. We went sledding with the Sabins, had a great time visiting with Matt & Ella who I haven't seen in over a year, met little Jane, and got to hang out with Julie & Terrell. Good times and good Christmas fun!

I am just happy that I don't have to look at that spider every time I check your blog anymore. I was frightened.
