Christmas in Utah

Can the holiday season get any better than when spending time with friends and family? Especially when you live really far away? I submit that it can not. 

Some of my favorite moments in Utah went undocumented because I was so caught up in laughter, good conversation and catching up, including LOTS of time with my two besties Holly and Sarah. It’s so rare that I get to spend hours with friends while visiting, but when you stay up until 2 AM, you suddenly gain lots of quality time. 😉

Lots of other great moments did get photographed though, including…

Snuggly teeny toddlers. Josie is almost 3 and the same size as a 9-month old nephew.

Hanging out with sisters… (aka my brother’s wife and her sister)

Spending time with my mom

Laughing at funny boys with gorgeous eyes

Seeing the joy of Santa Clause

Playing with toys that are classics over generations

And FaceTiming with friends who are too far away on Christmas Day

I’m blessed.

    Are you sure all three of you aren’t sisters? Seriously, you look related!

    That baby boy is adorable. One day he will be SUCH a ladies man. 😉

    I concur: nothing better than family on Christmas, especially far flung ones. (Mine came to me this year, but I appreciate your sentiments all the same.)

    Also, you look like your sisters-in-law. (Read: you’re all gorgie.)

    *And* Christmas with little kids around is just THE best. Getting to see that excitement through their eyes? Lucky you! Hope you had an amazing time in Utah! (Although I am also happy you’re back here in my zip code, so we can play again soon.) Welcome back!

    I am convinced that you get more and more gorgeous by the day. I’m being totally serious. And your hair is perfect all the time!

    What a beautiful holiday you had! If you’re too busy to take pics, that’s always a good sign. 🙂 xo

    I took even fewer photos! It was cool to catch up with my husband’s Polish family via Skype over the holidays.

    I loved being so excited as a kid for Santa Claus. 🙂

    I can’t see what the YouTube link is since I’m at work, but I am going to assume it’s a clip of Brian Regan. If it is, that’s awesome.

    Love. Finally caught up on your blog during work. Time theft. No big deal.
    Hugs, Holly
