Christmas out West

For Christmas this year we told the kids we would take them skiing for their present. They were thrilled. For all of December we heard I can't wait till we leave!! So here we have a picture of the kids relieved to finally be in the car and on our way.
Our first stop was at Shaun's brothers place in Utah. Their kids didn't know we were coming So when we arrived the surprise on their face was priceless. On Christmas Eve their tradition is to break a pinata. So here we are beating the poor thing to death.
Christmas morning
Shem with his new 5x5 rubiks cube

Isabelle with her Diamonds
Hannah with her walkie talkies
Dan with his itouch cover ( he had just bought the itouch before Christmas)
The beautiful mountain view out their window (I miss the mountains)
The day after Christmas we went sledding, except for Aleena she built a snow castle.
Joe Cool
Sarah & Alex were the sledding queens they went up & down a hundred times.
I don't know how Aleena talked Isabelle into pulling her around?
Shem flying down the hill.
Hannah catching some air.
One of the highlights of the trip was going to Temple square to see all the Christmas lights. There was also nativities from different countries. It was beautiful.
