Home again, Home again

We are BACK from an exciting trip to Idaho. I was itching to blog about it, but was unable to before we left (on Dec 22nd) because it was a SURPRISE for Dan's family. We drove up and spent Sunday and Monday night at our home in Salt Lake. Then, early (and I mean EARLY) Christmas morning we drove to Pocatello, Idaho for the big reveal. :) They were super surprised to see us!! And it was very funny because they thought that our friend Chris was driving to Texas to surprise US.

The drive from Dallas to Salt Lake was VERY trecherous. We drove through a major front coming across the top of Texas and Colorado. Then we hit construction & traffic in Denver. Finally, we battled 65-mph wind gusts across Wyoming. But, we made it safely.

We were able to see Jen in West Jordan - it was so good to see you! Thanks so much for the gift! And I LOVE the FHE plaque. It turned out so well. I hope little Emily is feeling better soon!

For Christmas, I received a tripod, a new lens, and a wireless remote, all for my (I mean Dan's) Nikon D50. I had soooo much fun using them and took over 300 pictures in 2 days. I even set up a small family photo shoot in the basement the day after Christmas and took all kinds of family portraits. I'm excited to share them soon. Which means I have to upload them....

Anyway, we are back safe and sound in nice WARM Texas.

I hope you all had a very, very special Christmas. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
