Christmas

I love Christmas! It means my kids are home! Jason and Mike came in together from Utah and Kray and Alysia were able to join us on Christmas Eve for our family dinner! It was delightful. We were just missing Matt, but I got to Skype with him the next day. Of course we try to have the missionaries come over. It kind of helps my missionary mom heart feel just a bit better.

Fun Times

With the kids home we had some fun times. Steve and Chris got drones and had fun flying them. Jason went skiing with Kray. We went to a hockey game (they are so much fun) and Mike, Jessie, Steve and I went to see Singing in the Rain. Chris went with Kray and Alysia to the Sounders' Victory parade.
