Rockin' around the Christmas tree

.......This could be true with Cruz around. Anyway we are in the Christmas mood. We had between 6-8 inches of snow until last night when it rained. Now we have ice. Anyway we decided to put our tree up, although we will only be home to enjoy it for a week. We have a small tradition with our tree. If you notice we don't have a lot of decorations yet. Every year we take a family picture and put it in a frame ornament. Also then we put a decoration on the tree that symbolizes something unique or special that happened that year. For example our first year we have a family picture and then an ornament of the Salt Lake Temple because of our marriage and sealing to McKay. The second year a baby carriage because Kirsten was born, third an ornament of Idaho due to a moving. Anyway you get the idea. This year we will take a picture in Hawaii and an ornament of some sort to do with Hawaii. Anyway we are all excited and full of Christmas cheer. Merry Christmas to everyone and we love and miss you all.
