A little trip

We took a little trip home for Christmas--a very white Christmas. 
We flew in on the morning of the 24th. Blake's parents picked us up and took us out to lunch.
It was snowing. I loved it.
Then we headed up to Huntsville with my family to hang out in the snow. 

A view of Pineview.

Our own two horse open sleigh. Pretty paint horses.

We went off a few lanterns--or tried, at least. It was windy and the flames burned our lantern.

We woke up to several white mornings. So nice. This was a long stay where we were able to see {almost}everyone we wanted to see and spend time with. 

I got strep throat and spent my New Year's Eve on the couch with a mask while the others played games.
This lovely little sickness also foiled my plans to go snowboarding. It will be three years before I touch those beautiful slopes again {sigh}.

Daddo (Blake's dad) retired on the 4th! This is his view from his office in the Church office building.

Did I mention it was freezing?! Because it was. 
It didn't get above freezing the entire time we were there. 
One night we left my house to go to Blake's and this was the temperature. 
I had to screen shot it for proof of how cold it was.

Now we return to real life. Real life during busy season is terrible--I rarely get to see Blake. 
It's a rough transition for me, going from family and friends to being alone almost 24 hours a day. 
I enjoy being around people--even if I'm not talking to them. Maybe that's super weird but that's how I am.

I hope your Christmas and New Year's was as enjoyable as mine. Here's to the New Year!

  1. Isn't it a little sad that we didn't take a picture of us while you were here? Well, it is. We'll need to fix that soon :)
