Our Taste of Snow

It was beautiful here in California all December, but it just didn't feel like Christmas because it was too warm and there was no snow!  We were all excited about going to Utah where Mother Nature had so obligingly dropped feet of it for us.  
We went sledding with the Jensens and had a lot of fun, but Avery wasn't sure what on earth she was doing with 8 layers of clothes on, outside in such a cold place, and with ever-increasing dry and chapped red cheeks.  So we took her in before too long.
Sophie loved sledding as long as she didn't get her hands in the snow at all.  She also liked watching her uncles and aunts do daredevil slides down slippery stairs.
Avery and Sophie love their Grandma Bob and we're sure glad we got to spend some time with her and all the Jensen's at our first ever family reunion with Joseph's immediate family.  We all had such a great time!

How fun! Since I'm from California, I love a warm and sunny holiday season! But there is definitely something to be said for a white Christmas.
