We started the Christmas Break with a trip to Boise, Idaho
for the Potato Bowl! Go Aggies! Grrr, that we lost in the last 13 seconds,
but it was an exciting game and a fun road trip. We drove there and back in one day ..... whew, lots of driving for sure.
I had work up to Wednesday, and we headed down to Salt Lake City for our first Christmas party of the year Thursday. Justin cooked, cleaned, and shopped in preparation for Christmas.
Thursday Schmidt Christmas party was wonderful!
We had a delicious dinner, nativity dress up and caroling with a devotional and games. A great time. Check out the foxy shepherds. :)
Justin helped dad chop firewood for their wood burning stove and mom and I were able to do a bit of reading and shopping. :) And then that night we had the Barfuss Christmas party - so good to catch up with family and play a few card games!
The next couple days we were attending weddings. We were able to do a session in the Salt Lake temple after a sealing. What a neat temple. Attending sealings was a special opportunity. What a beautiful ordinance to be able to witness. Also a great reminder of our wedding day. We then headed to St. George with Bryce and Kaylee Roholt!
