christmas from my view...

As mentioned in my previous post, Christmas this year was a little different. Because Trevor's sister had a baby, she could not make the trip down to St. George for Christmas with everyone. So since they only live 45 minutes away, we made the trip up there for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day so we could all be together!

The highlight of the trip for me, was obviously a brand new baby, my niece Mia :) I pretty much soaked up as much time with her as I could get! Other then that it was pretty much just lounging around eating candy until we were sick, and realizing this was the first white Christmas we had ever had together - even though we live in the snow - our families live in warm sunny climates, so that was fun!

I didn't get nearly as many pictures as I wanted, but you can blame that on the baby, I think we were all a little preoccupied! So here are just some snap shots of Christmas from behind my lens :) Hope you all enjoyed your break!





















Hope you all have some fun plans for the New Year! I know I do :) 2013!

    1. Yes, especially with sugar on it :) Trevor puts sugar and salt on his! I thought that was weird but apparently it evens out the bitterness of the grapefruit? Haha
