Christmas in the Desert

So now that I'm in Utah and surrounded by beautiful snow, lights, a HUGE Christmas tree, family and LOTS of photo moments... I thought I'd slip in a quick picture of Sophia and Tanner checking out neighborhood lights before we left. We had grand plans to go to Candy Cane Lane for family night with the Lamms, and get hot chocolate afterwards. How quickly the night gets away when you've got little ones with bed times and husbands with varying get-home-from-work times. So we made a quick change to our plans and walked around Lizzie's neighborhood looking at lights and poking at inflatable snowmen. Lizzie and I ditched out with the babies and left the boys to wander the streets with the toddlers. Kind of a cute sight.


Our attempt at a picture of all four of us. Not the best... but four of us nonetheless.

You are beautiful as always. I love that picture with Ross and Sophia, Shad and Tanner. So cute! Enjoy your time in Utah. I'm really missing the snow this year in Arizona.

Lillie, I can't believe right now at this very minute we are only 3 hrs. away from eachother. And then we'll go back to being over 3000 miles again. How long are you in Utah for? We're flying back Jan.2, but we were trying to squeeze in a Salt Lake trip this next week so Dan could ski with some buddies...who knows our plans yet. But it was so fun meeting you in Provo last year (I still can't believe that was a whole year ago) at Ross' parent's house. You totally got me hooked on that grilled chicken spinach salad at C.P.K., by the way. Also, I LOVE the picture of Ross sleeping with Mila, and am so jealous of your new neighborhood grocer! I love natural food stores like that, and I could actually feel your giddy excitement for the new place! It reminded me of how excited I got when they put in a brand new Cheesecake Factory just down the street. Okay, not quite the same thing, but I definately got excited, I almost cried.

can't wait can't wait can't wait to hang out. I was in ross' parents' town saturday night (don't know if I'm allowed to say the name online), and I wanted to just wander the neighborhoood streets, peeking in windows searching for my lillie. :) lucky for me, you, and all town members, I contained myself. still, can't wait to see you. :)

I can't blow up the last photo of you four, but I can tell it is ADORABLE. Merry merry Christmas Lillie!

oh no! it's christmas night and I want to call you, but I only have your home phone number...can you email me your cell? I'll email you too, just in case.

sounding a little desperate by this point I think. :) sorry about that.

First of all, thanks for the great comment! I can TOTALLY relate! And yes, Lizzie DOES have great hair!

Second of all, YES I was talking about you! I'm pretty sure your sister's not he one that used to have a cute baby in her belly!?! but her hair looked FANTASTIC in that swing picture as well!

And lastly, I think all I needed was a little time and a change in my natural part to enjoy my new color. I've realized over the past couple days that it's pretty darn close to my naturally sun-hilighed hair so I'm happy with it now. It just took me a while to get used to being blonde again since I went dark last year. but now, I love it! Maybe you should come up here, become friends with me and make a visit with my hair girl! Oh, and bring Lizzie and Michelle with you.....girls trip!!!!

Have a wonderful time in Utah! These pictures are adorable. I love seeing everything that you do with Sophia. Makes me look forward to having a toddler.
