To Winter for Christmas

We headed south for Christmas, to where there is actually snow.  The white weather was somewhat frightful on the road there, and worse going back.  But while we stayed, the snow was beautiful.
It has been a long time since we've spent Christmas with our extended family.  I don't think there have ever been so many stockings hanging together in my parents' house.
Here are Dandelionslayer and the boys, with my sister Vae, in front of the tree on Christmas morning.
LaBeq came to pose with us in the afternoon. It was a lovely, relaxing day.
We also spent a couple of days with Dandelionslayer's family.  The boys had a great time sledding with their cousins.
The Caterpillar got his groove on, and won every dance.
We hit the slopes again, a little harder, in some cases, but the boys all survived their first time skiing.  D2, in the center of the picture, was the least afraid, and did really well.
We visited some dinosaurs, too,
and walked through the beautiful lights at Temple Square.
It was frigid, but our hearts were warm.
The Square is full of beautiful reminders of the Reason for the season.  Look at the leopard and the zebra lying down together, waiting for the Child to lead them.
We had a great time in snowy Utah.  I hope you enjoyed the holidays, too!
