I do love coming home for the holidays. Most of my family still lives here, and some of Bens family lives in Pleasant Groove so it’s a good meeting place for everyone.
Time really seems to fly. We had something planned everyday and had A LOT of family time. Because of this, I didn’t take a lot of pictures… Here are some of the highlights of the trip.
Dad is a total bachelor right now, and every once in a while, he needs some help. I told him I wanted to help him organize and clean the house. He was open to it, and it was fun to spend some quality time with him.
Acro Yoga With The Nieces
Not sure where this started but the girls LOVE doing this with me. Essentially, it’s doing fun poses on top of my feet.
Top Golf With Friends
Rather than hitting up dinner with a bunch of friends, we decided that we would host a party at Top Golf. I am not huge into Top Gold but it’s a good spot for lots of people to interact and hang out.
We invited a bunch of people from different times in our lives. Ben had some friends from Philly, snow college, and even BYU Idaho home. I had friends from different Singles wards from Salt Lake City and from Austin. We really weren’t sure how things were going to mesh but it turned out really fun.
So glad everyone could make it!
Ok… I got a little baby hungry when going to SLC. We visited Mary and KP some good friends from Austin who were staying down in Provo and got to meet her little girl named Lucia. She is a great baby who seemed a little too serious in this moment.
This is my newest Nephew Lincoln. He was born in October and was recently diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. Before this time, I had no idea what CF was. It was a hard pill to swallow for the family as it’s a very serious genetic disease. However, research is being done and those with CF are able to live full lives. That is our hope and prayer for this little guy. He was so cute and content.
His breathing was really loud as he has some flesh blocking his air pipe. This isn’t related to the CF but makes it harder for him to breathe. Because CF is an immune disease, we had to be really careful when holding him so we had to wear masks and hospital suits. We didn’t mind.
Bowling With The Becks
Because we spent most of Christmas with my family, the Beck side organized some activities. We all went and saw Aquaman together which I loved, and then another night we went bowling with the Bens sister and brother. They both have kids so it made things real interesting.
A White Christmas
I really am slightly embarrassed with how few pictures I took. We were honestly so busy during this time, I rarely thought about how we were going to document this. Good thing we booked a vacation in Hawaii!
Here we come warm weather!
