Christmas was fun this year as we spent it on the road with family.  The kids really enjoyed themselves as did Mae and I.  It was fun to see the cousins (Julia, Akaila, Cole, Spencer, Parker, and Grace*) and it was nice to experience a little bit of winter.  When we got home we, eh hem, reluctantly enjoyed the 60 degree weather that greeted us!

Boys and planes

While we were in Utah, the older boys were able to go with Grandpa and Great Grandpa to see the Hill Air Force Base museum.  They had a blast and really enjoyed getting the inside scoop from their great grandpa who volunteers at the museam (getting them access to some places off the normal tour!)  They had a blast even though they had to endure weather and unusually stiff traffic.

Staying in touch!

We just returned from celebrating the holidays in Utah and after going through all our mail and Christmas cards I realized that I have not been very good at keeping in touch. I figured it was time to get in the 21st century and start a blog. So I hope you can link to this page and check it out every so often and drop us a line.
