Christmas Eve started out raining, boo. But it quickly turned into the most beautiful snow and it snowed all day. It was so beautiful. Salt Lake is so beautiful. Scott's parents have great views out their front porch and their back porch. I love it. We ended up going back over to Phil and Micaela's to make some rolls. Micaela mixed up the dough and I rolled it out and cooked them. It was nice to do it over there because we got to hang out some more and plus I could contribute without crowding the kitchen. Here is the roll recipe. So good! Thanks again Micaela. Later that night we had Janet's homemade chicken noodle soup that is so yummy. We decorated gingerbread cookies and then proceeded with the Cannon family Christmas Eve talent show. It was fun. The Cannons are FUN! Scott and I did a dance. It was awesome. If I ever get a hold of the video I will post it. We finished off the night with Musical Scrooge.
Christmas morning was fun. It took a long time to open presents. There were a lot. We pretty much just lounged all day and then had Janet's Christmas dinner that night. The boys played video games after that and the rest of us just hung around a little bit. We finally broke down and played a game it which made the night.
The day after Christmas Scott went with his friends skiing. He hasn't skied in 8 years! They had fun. I was happy they got to get together and play like that. Janet took me to the new outlet mall in Alpine (I think). We picked out some cute kid clothes.
Thursday was Corbin's birthday. We went to the Pizza Factory for lunch followed by bowling. It was fun. The girls were being extra tired and crabby but ended up surviving all right. That night we had dinner and cake and presents. Nicole made a movie trailer of the day. Check it out here.
On Friday we drove home. We stopped once to fill up. Our kids didn't even get out of the car. I don't know how they do that? I have to have bathroom break. They are such good little travelers. Piper slept for only 20 minutes but she was a quiet little mouse the whole way home. After we got home I went and ran some errands. I wanted to celebrate Corbin's birthday again with just our family. Saturday we had another Corbin birthday celebration. We went out to eat and had cake and presents again. One day is really not enough. Today me and the kids stayed home from church. They have pretty bad coughs. I have been working on the computer a lot today. I had a lot of catching up to do.
