Eden's First Noel

I guess it's just something that happens as you get older, but each year at Christmas time I tend to think less and less about presents and more and more about family, friends, and especially my Savior. This year was very special for me because I now have my own little family. Of course it was a blast watching Eden open presents (and then eat the paper), but i was filled with the joy of the season most when I thought about how much more I understand what love Mary must have had for her little baby, now that I have my own. I love my family. I love my Savior. It was a very Merry Christmas indeed.


I was blessed this Christmas season to be able to spend three amazing weeks with family and friends in Arizona. Chase was only able to spend two weeks, but was nice enough to give me up so i could spend some quality time with the girls in my life (Thanks honey!)

While Chase was there we got to go to the Wildlife World Zoo. We were so amazed at how close we got to all the animals.

And of course, what's an Arizona trip without some guns involved? All the boys finally have their handguns and concealed it's my turn.

Eden loved spending time with all of her cousins! She just wanted to be in the middle of everything...Steel and her became especially good friends.
