Californians Visit Winter

"What We Did Over Christmas Vacation"

Lessons on driving in the snow, just in case...

Jeff's guided tour of BYU. Look at all those future missionaries, watch out world!

Games, games and more games!

Cousin Kylie helps Justin out with his challenge during one of the games. Aren't they cute? They share the same birthday!

Dave's Family Home Evening where we trekked in the snow BAREFOOT in order to give us a glimpse into the pains suffered by the pioneers. Grandpa Bruce's retelling of the pioneer stories is always so moving.
Sledding in Lindon. Dave knows this place so secret you have to quad in!
Cousins playing "Guitar Hero World Tour" at Grandma and Grandpa's....

Even Jeff, Grandma and Grandpa get into the act--everyone wants to be a star! It's a great game where our children can re-discover those classic songs from the 70's and even sing those terrific lyrics. Case in point: "Really love your peaches, want to shake your tree" (courtesy of The Joker by the Steve Miller Band). Hmmm... (?)

New Year's Eve at the McGills, great company and yummy food, and...

Fireworks! Zack blows up the gingerbread house!

Snowmobiling up Provo Canyon
And, waiting for AAA because the battery died in our Suburban. Only, we originally thought it was much more dire than just a battery because we tried to jump start it with the McGill's SUV to no avail. Apparently, their car (we later found out) also needed to have it's battery replaced. We hate saying goodbye!

This looks like such a fun trip! I want to try the barefoot in the snow thing. What a great idea!
