Pre and Post Christmas fun

Our Utah trip was a whirlwind of family, food, fun and head colds 🙂  Here are some of the  highlights:

Going to Candlelight Christmas at This is the Place Heritage Park.  This was so fun!  We got to visit Santa, see a live Nativity, and experience Pioneer Christmas traditions.

The blacksmith was making sleigh bells.  The boys were MESMERIZED.  They had to stay until the whole thing was done.

At Alta, these crazy people skied in a blizzard!  It was freezing!  Any exposed skin was immediately frozen.  This was one time I was glad to have a head cold!

And I was even more glad when Jan McDaniel FINALLY, after years of begging, let me apprentice her famous, top secret, cinnamon rolls.  I am so so happy to know how to make these delicious bits of heaven.

These beautiful Hawaiian babes met for breakfast at Cubby’s early one morning.  I think this might be the most of us together at one time since the North Shore Beaches.  I always feel so lucky to have these life long friendships.

Saying goodbye is always the worst part of the trip!  Even though I passed my head cold on to Grandma she still waved from the porch until we were out of sight.
