the merriest holiday.

Christmas was spent in Idaho this year with B's family.
We celebrated with my family over Thanksgiving, but I missed not seeing them this year.
Good thing I have awesome in-laws so that Christmas without my family isn't TOO bad.
Unfortunately Branson got the flu Christmas Day.
Talk about bad timing...
We still had fun and Christmas Eve was our big celebratory day anyway so it worked out.
Here are some pictures of our shenanigans during the holiday season.

Parker got to visit with three different Santas this year.  He did the same thing with each one... stared at them intently and then wiggled his way out of their arms..unless of course they gave him something cool like a candy cane.
We went up to Salt Lake to see the temple lights.  We also did some shopping at City Creek.
It was frigid! Poor Parks...haha.
Hanging with my little buddy while dad was resting up.^
Preston got Branson a sweatshirt that was just a tad too small.^

We were lucky to visit with some of our best friends who were in town for the holidays.
The kids have a blast together...
Rowan, Parker, Annabelle and Scarlett.
Lyndsey and Brittany.

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!

Suit and Tie kind of night...

For my birthday this year Branson got us tickets to go see JT in Las Vegas.  We were already in California before the concert so we drove from Murrieta to Vegas and met Jess and Garrett there.  
[We were still in vacation mode after Tahiti so the fun had to continue ;)]
We put the babes to bed at Branson's grandparents house and hit the town!
I honestly don't have words to describe how amazing this concert was.
He is unbelievably talented and a true entertainer in every way possible.
I will forever be a JT fan.
B and I decided that we would go see him again but that we would pay the big bucks and get floor seats. It is honestly SO worth it.
I've been to a lot of concerts and this one is by far at the top of the list!
Such a fun night and one to remember!
