Road Trippin...and such.

Happy new year friends!!
 I can't believe how time has flown by. Today my baby is 6 months old.
Oh my heck . Boo.
 
 My new years resolutions are,
1. Strengthen my relationship with my Savior.
2. Get skinny.
That's it. I can think of a million things I need to work on, but that would get too overwhelming, so I chose the two I thought would make me most happy!

Anyway...
We had a wonderful vacation! We spent Christmas with my family in Idaho.
 PS...yesterday in our new Sunday school class (there's like 17 12 & 13 year olds) Bryce and I played "Two truths and a lie" so we could get to know our class better. My lie was " I grew up on a farm in Idaho." Nobody guessed right so I told them that I did grow up in Idaho, but not on a farm. One of the boys then said "I thought everyone in Idaho lived on a farm."
Seriously? Do people really think that?
I lived in a neighborhood.
I went to a 5A high school.
And hello, there was a mall like ten minutes away.
Now that we have that all cleared up...Moving on.

I have like a billion pictures from our trip, so I decided to break it down into a few different posts.
On the way up, we stopped in Manti to stay with Bryce's aunt and uncle. I love that town. So charming and quaint. We were able to go to our favorite burger joint there, Fred's. If you're ever in Manti, go there. It's amazing! The next morning we got snowed in and weren't able to finish the rest of our drive until later that day. Which ended up being just fine...Arlene started to teach me how to crochet, while Troy and Bryce played in the snow...they said they were "working!" Whatever :)







At the beginning of December, I asked Leyla if she would take our family pictures. They turned out perfect! I promised her if I put them on my blog, I would tell you all that she doesn't think she is a professional photographer!
I knew she would do a wonderful job though and I absolutely love them!
Thank you thank you!
Here are some of my favorites.










More updates on the way!
Hope you all had a fun Holiday season!

It is so stupid that we live in different states. :( We miss you more than we can say. That sweet baby has been more wonderful than we ever could have imagined. We have all been in mourning since you left. Your family pictures are absolutely amazing. Thank you for the picture book you gave me for Christmas! Leyla, I think you could be a professional if you wanted to. The pictures couldn't be more perfect. I love the chair! Good luck with your goals. :)

These are totally cute Bree. I think you look SO good in these! Seriously, I'm loving your hair and of course you always just look gorgeous. I'm so sad we weren't able to meet up in Merville last week! Really, when I found out you had JUST left I was so bummed. I did get to see the old man and dusty though at church. That was happy. Hope all is well with you and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

ah you look so good! I'm seriously so sad I missed you guys at Christmas. I'm serious this is not cool. I haven't even met this adorably 6-month-old baby yet! (ps boo is right).

Love how long your hair is getting! Your family pictures are perfect.

Ha ha! I am so glad that you cleared that all up about Idaho not being all farm land :) I will admit that although I am well aware there is normal life there- I still picture farmland when I think of Idaho :) Your pictures are perfect! So cute!
