Happy Holidays

The bum part of working is only having a few days off for the holidays. Although our holiday break was short this year we still managed to have a great time sneaking in a last minute trip up to Montana. It was lots of fun. Kara's mom spoiled us and babysat Jake each day we were there so we could go out downhill skiing, cross-country skiing and sledding. It was a nice to have a little get away during the day and then a family gathering at night.
Jake was a whole lot of fun for Christmas. He couldn;t quite unwrap the gifts on his own but he helped out a lot and got real excited to see what was inside. Christmas is much more special when you have a little one to share it with! (Note the fourth picture up is the view out of Kara's parents' window, which is just one of the many reasons to love MONTANA!) It felt great to be back in the trees and the mountains for a little bit before returning to Twin Falls)

Sounds like you guys had a great Christmas. Glad to see you got to spend so much time outside. You're right Christmas is so much fun with little guys in the house. Hope you have a great new year!

Glad you guys were able to get away and be with family for the holidays. It's always fun to have a lot of people around.

Jake is a adorable as usual. Christmas just gets better and better the older they get. Their excitement is contagious!
