Last Half Of the Year

...was a bit crazy, that was why I was horrible at blogging. But it was a fantastic close to a year, so I want to document it.
We actually got to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with our families this year, thanks to Eric's siblings getting married. The day after Thanksgiving, Eric's brother Brandon married Alisa Jarvis in the Boise Temple. Gorgeous temple, nice looking bride and groom, cold day! We drove up to Utah from Dallas a few days before the wedding and then drove from Henefer to Boise after Thanksgiving Dinner. Had a blast seeing family during the weekend. The drive home from Boise to Dallas was a beastie though. Three kids in a Volkswagon Golf.
At Christmastime, Eric's Sister Jessica got married in the Manti Temple. C'mon kids, let's get in the Golf again. We had a bit more trouble with weather on the way up this time, but ultimately, we did arrive safe and sound.
At the reception.
More photos of Christmas with our two families...

We are blessed to be part of wonderful families. Happy New Year!
