The drive up!
We thought we were in for it when we saw this storm up ahead of us, but luckily it didn't slow us down too much:
Happy Anniversary! SEVEN YEARS. My cousin Sarah got married that same day so this was us right before leaving for the reception:
Me being tall:
We walked through temple square afterwards, even though Jon didn't bring a coat. So so so so so so so so so so beautiful:
Right before Annie snapped the following picture, she took another one, reviewed it, started laughing hysterically and told us it was HORRENDOUS of both of us. Later, when I cycled through the pictures, I found the one she was talking about and I didn't think it was bad of me at all :(
(Jon was cold.)
Have you ever really looked at an antelope?
My grandma's nativity is prettier than your grandma's nativity:
Jon found three sticks of string cheese in his coat pocket. He hadn't worn the coat in a year.
Christmas Day! We spent it at Annie's house in Heber. Jon and I slept over the night before and my parents drove up from Salt Lake for the day. We had the most delicious breakfast EVER (eggs Newport, ever heard of it? You layer English muffins, ham, a delicious mixture of hollandaise and sliced hardboiled eggs, with crumbled bacon on top), then opened presents, then watched Inception, then made our traditional fondue for dinner.
My parents had to leave a couple of hours before we made chocolate fondue, and they totally missed out:
Back at my grandparents' house; dad holding Gunner's head up for him again.
CONCLUSION: The worst part of the entire trip was when my mom got a virus in her ear that made her dizzy, nauseated, and bed-ridden for three whole days. The best part of the entire trip was when, at the wedding reception, my cousin Adam picked a piece of food out of his salad and asked my brother-in-law Steve if it was an apple slice. Steve responded with a little too much gusto, "It's jicama" - and as he said it, a big chunk of jicama flew out of his mouth and landed on the floor.
