Merry Christmas!

Well, Darin and I have just celebrated our first Christmas together, and it was wonderful! We had a good time up at the cabin last week, and then some good times with both of our families. We are really lucky that our families have different traditions, it made it possible to participate in everything! We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas morning breakfast with my parents, then Christmas dinner and evening with Darin's family! It is such a blessing to have two wonderful families who love eachother and the Gospel! I am so thankful for this joyus season, and hope to keep those feelings throughout the year! (The last picture is the plate that we had cookies for santa on...but when I woke up--only crumbs!! Santa came!!)
