Lanny and Mark hosted our work party out at their place. Everyone fell in love with Evan ... how could you not ... and Mark's sue-chef gave him this hat! Isn't it adorable??? The party was really fun, but made me so grateful to live the life I do. There were so many of them completely wasted by the end of the evening, and they really were making fools of themselves. It is funny how friendly drunk people can be sometimes.

After a wonderful morning at home we drove out to Lanny and Mark's house to have Christmas with the rest of the family. It was so fun, as we knew it would be. We talked, opened presents, went quading and sledding, ate some of the best food ever, and relaxed. I made the sweet potatoes (yes ... two baking attempts in one day) and people seemed to enjoy them. I think it was a success.
Justin and I stayed the night there and it was just a lovely day. I was able to talk to my family (well, some of them) and that was an amazing Christmas present for me to be able to have access to the technology that keeps me in touch with my family and friends, eventhough I am so far away from them.
I love Christmas, and I look forward to it every year. I hope that I am able to keep the Christmas spirit in my heart throughout the entire year, and keep my thoughts on Christ as much as I do through this beautiful (and COLD) time of year.
Daddy and Evan matching!
