It was a blast as usual with the family!
Justin did a week with us 4 days with each family and then the kids and I did 10 days with each family before flying out to be with Justin for 2 weeks in Arkansas. We then returned to Germany together. I could not have handled two kiddos on those flights alone.
We snowmobiled to a cabin for an adventure with the Barfuss'. Thanks to Pat and Gwen for letting us borrow their mobiles and for mom and dad coordinating. It was a fun get away. Mom, Justin B and Keenan all got sick, so the show was us with dad (Grandpa BArfuss), Craig, Jacob and Kaitlin. We had fun anyways.
We bounced up to Tremonton for LeDoux's blessing and to visit Grandma Della in the Hospital. Went back to have a Valentine's/early birthday party for Sam with all his Schmidt cousins.
Grandma Schmidt sewed Brandon and Sam matching pajamas for their sleepover during the sisters weekend.
We had a fabulous time at the Schmidts. It was hard to say goodbye!
Jeona, Jami and I -- the three girl cousins were able to get together for a dinner. We chatted it up for hours. It was so needed and so much fun! Love these two ladies -- they are STRONG women who I look up to and love so much.
Grandma Barfuss got busy with the holiday preparations -- Valentine's Day sugar cookies!
WE visited Uncle Craig in Logan where he showed us where he lives and took us on a tour of the campus. So many memories there. It was fun to tell Sam about where he was born and how Justin and I had studied, met, married and had a lot of good times.

The goodbyes don't get easier.
