Christmas!

We had a really great Christmas...we didn't get much, but had more fun just being around family. We started at my parents house and let my brothers open all of their gifts from Santa, then we headed to Grandma Vicki's, to Grandma & Grandpa Frei's, and back to my parents house to eat breakfast. It was fun to see the kids unwrap their presents and fun to play around all day long. It was pretty exhausting for me...I had to take nap in the middle of the day just to regain some energy. Later in the day Grandma Virginia and Grandpa Fred came over to visit as well and the rest of the day we played the Wii and Rock Band which ended up being pretty hilarious! The best part of Christmas was the day after Christmas! Grandma Vicki's present to everyone was a ticket to the Jazz game! we left around noon, drove through a bit of snow but made it safely into Salt Lake just in time for the game. We had a blast watching the Jazz, especially since they won. The following day we woke up and did a little shopping and then my parents too us to see "Savior of the World." It was incredible and the spirit was so strong. It was another great reminder of why we really celebrate Christmas, as well as, how tender and gracious our Savior is. It's going to be a remarkable day when we get to see Him again and how humbled I am that we are so fortunate to have Christ in our lives. What an amazing season it is to reflect on what life is really all about!
A big thanks to my family for making this Christmas one of the best!

Whit..hey woman. sounds like you guys had a great time with the fam. Isn't that what Christmas is all about anyway:) I have practice with my little team tomorrow night but was wondering if I could come by afterward. I think I am done at 6:30. Not sure exactly what time the shower ends. Hope that is okay if I come a bit late..Can't believe you are going to be a mom..I am super excited for you..but it does make me feel old
