Christmas Recap.

I know I am super late on this post, but this Christmas break came and went so fast, and I haven't had any time to blog about it! So here we go... this was my first Christmas not at home in San Diego, but it was fun to spend the holidays with Trevor's family. Both of our brothers are actually serving missions in Chile, and the highlight of Christmas was being able to talk to them! My brother was even able to skype with us which made my day! Just to be able to actually see his face was amazing :) We spent time with family, saw movies, ate lots of food (too much) saw the lights at the St. George Temple, played with all of our presents, board games, and relaxed. I even learned how to play Chess! My dad and brother tried teaching me when I was about ten, but I didn't really get it... or more likely I didn't really care for it. But I was a lot more excited about  it this time around...haha even though Trevor crushes me every time... but someday I might win, right? 
All in all a great Christmas vacation :)

  15. Is that Mexican Train?! I'm dying to learn how to play. My grandma tried teaching me one night, but kept changing the rules. Funniest night ever... but I'd really like to know the real way! :)

  25. We've played Mexican Train with the Sharp's and they have their own game using normal dominoes and a Thomas the Tank train & penny's. They don't have a store bought version but it's played the same way. It's a fun a game and we enjoyed it. Great pictures! We're glad we got to see you for some of the break.
