we left the day after Christmas to go to UT...driving and it actually went really well. i was surprised how well the kids did...i guess they are growing up huh? we had a great time with my family (thank you family for being with us and helping and for everything!). we drove home today (again the kids did so well!) and are trying to unpack/put away Christmas presents etc.
i feel a big excitement about cleaning out drawers/closets/toys/clothes and starting fresh with this new year...i hope that enthusiasm lasts. a couple friends in our ward are putting on a "no sale garage sale" where you can bring your gently used things and it's like a big trade! i am excited for that, because there are definitely things i'd like to have less of!
i'll have pictures in the next post (although i didn't take a ton...too busy participating in the fun and togetherness) but i hope your Christmas was Merry and your New Year was Happy!
