Christmas and Winter Fun!

So, I thought I would get another post done and say I at least got two done in one month!! Christmas was so fun this year, having EVERYONE home. It just doesn't happen often enough. However, we never got a family picture :( I don't think we slowed down long enough to get everyone together. Anyway, here are a few pictures:

Just grateful no injuries!!

I think I may use this one for blackmail some day!

Cutest boys ever!

Cole's first Christmas!

Tegan and friend Bailey tubing!

There is nothing better than family at home!

Our Happy Hawaiian Holiday!

In November our family (Bart, Shane, Tegan, and I) went to Hawaii to watch Christine and the Utah State Aggies play in the WAC championships. Unfortunately, the volleyball team lost their first match to San Jose, who they beat twice in regular season play. However, this left us more time to see the island! This was our first time to Hawaii and I absolutely loved it! The weather was perfect except for one day it rained while we were at Pearl Harbor.

Shane and Tegan having fun at the Polynesian Culture Center - at least Shane is having fun!

Another pix at the PCC. Supposedly Elvis sat on this bent palm tree in a movie.

Tegan learning to hula at the luau.

Shane and Tegan having fun again at the beach.

Our good friends Brian and JoEllen Nurding showed us a great time and treated us to some great Hawaiian food. They have been great supporters of Christine and our family.
Tegan in front of a Banyan tree. These trees amazed me.

Snorkeling at Hanauma Bay was fantastic. Tegan even saw a sea turtle!
