We are back in Utah! Yeah.  I'm so happy and that sometimes makes me not want to blog. Being especially sad makes me not want to blog either.  I just have to be in the middle or "normal" as some may say. If I have to be normal to blog it's amazing that I have so many blog posts. 

Anyway after a 3 day road trip in scary weather and boring scenery we finally made it back to Utah.  I was so happy to see our families and Eli was thrilled to see everyone.  He still hasn't seen the Haights and that has been the only downside to his trip.  The positives are 1) a christmas tree. 2) presents under the tree with his name on them. 3)presents.  I know, I already said that but seriously he's going nuts about presents.  While visiting the Christmas lights on temple square, Eli was annoyed that we were going in to see the Christus statue AFTER making him sit for 5 minutes and listen to a little of the scripture story of Jesus' birth. He said: "we aren't here for Jesus! We are here to see the lights!" Ummm O-kaaaay.

This morning I wrapped presents for an hour and a half!  I decided it's better to wrap them as you get them.  I have to say that I'm getting SO excited for Christmas.  We have a big party with my family Christmas Eve and then spend Christmas with the Broughs.  It works out well and we get to spend a lot of time with everyone.  

Well that's our update.  We are heading back to KY at the beginning of January and Eli and I will be back to Utah at the end of January for good.  I hope everyone has a great Christmas.

Welcome home! I am glad you got here safe and sound, no speeding in the snow! (Do you think your sister is offended at my comment on her blog? Hope not!) The other day Zack says to me: "Mom, is Christmas really JUST about the presents?" Um, I guess we need to go over some things.
