My favorite part of Christmas...

This year for Christmas we figured out (got better internet) so we could skype with Zack!  It was so great to see him as we got to talk with him.   He looks and sounds great!  His mission is going well and he is loving it!

I bit the bullet and Megan and I took a couple of hours and made pajama pants for everyone this year!  It has been a long time since I have actually made the pj's... but it was fun sewing with Megan and they turned out pretty cute too!

Grandma and Grandpa Steeneck and Aunt Sandy came up Christmas Eve to party with us!  So fun.

Catie came over early... 5am... and we got to open presents with them, then they went to Catie's house then back here to talk with Zack then down to Grandma Thomson's for a visit.   It was a busy day but very nice!

At my mom's new condo she had some home movies playing in the background.  It was fun to watch the movies of when I was growing up and laugh with my family how silly we were.  On the way home I was thinking about how my dad wasn't in most of the films... He was doing the filming....  It made me miss him even more.   It has been hard for me to blog or even take pictures since my dad's passing almost two years ago.  I thought about this and him most of the ride home and I decided that I wanted to do better at documenting my family and our exploits this year.  (My first goal for the New year!)  So hopefully you will hear more from me and our family this year!

Technology is amazing. I bet it was so good to talk to Zack. Pajama's turned out very cute and I try to hand the camera off so that I can be in the pictures too!
