Christmas Cheer!

We had a wonderful time in Utah I loved that it snowed and we had a white Christmas. We were so busy while we were their, but loved every minute of it. Ben and I started the week out by going to look at lights at Thanksgiving point, it was a blast being with Ben's family and listening to Lucy come up with funny things to say. 
After Mass on Christmas Eve we headed up to my Aunt and Uncles house for our annual ValDez Christmas party. We had such a wonderful time laughing, drinking and catching up with all of our family (I miss them so much). 
We split up Christmas this year, the morning was spent with Ben's mom who made a wonderful breakfast. We were glad that Grandma Syphus decided to join us it was really nice spending time with her. Thanks Mary for the wonderful time at your house. Then we headed to Megan's to meet up with Ben's dad and Wife for the afternoon. The evening was spent with my family eating dinner and opening up presents. 
We decided that we should leave early because of bad weather and good thing we did we got stuck in Ontario Oregon and had to spend the night until they re-opened the highway. Had we left when we were going to we still wouldn't be home, They shut down highway 84 right after we went through on Sunday. We made great memories driving to and from Utah and both Ben and I decided that next year we will fly.
