Christmas in Arizona

After Jeremy reported to the MTC on Wednesday December 21st, Kyle and I drove up to Bountiful to spend an hour or so with Nyall, Jen (and family), and my parents before we left for the airport. Our flight didn't leave until 9pm, which Kyle and I decided (looking back on it) was just too late. We got to his parents' house without any problems and slept very well that night. We were absolutely exhausted since we didn't get to the house until almost midnight.

We had a great time relaxing and spending time with the family. Christmas Eve, we had a musical talent show. People sang, played instruments (including me on my flute), followed by the acting out of the Nativity. I was so nervous to perform in front of Kyle's family, I don't know why. I guess it was probably because I had never played for them before and I hadn't really practiced nearly as much as I would've liked (since the past week was super busy with the London family). It turned out just fine, though, and I'm glad I did it.

Christmas was great. We got up around 7:30 to open gifts. Kyle and I got a lot of DVD's this year. :) I made him a scrapbook basically of all the little things that happened while we dated. I think he rather enjoyed it.

I had a lot of fun spending time with Lainey and Libby, helping them color in the coloring books they got for Christmas.

Later that week, we went to Schnepf Farms. We had a great time going on a hay ride and feeding the deer. :) Kyle enjoyed riding the little kid bikes, too. :)
