We had a wonderful time ringing in the New Year!
We got together with my extended family....all 35 of them... and p-a-r-t-i-e-d:) It was so much fun...and I am soooooo glad that we live close to everyone again! The evening was spent eating, eating and eating....playing games, cards and Wii Olympics. I have a new favorite by the way. The Skiing on WiiFit is the best. I currently hold the record:) Nobody could come close. Hee hee.
Jarom and I are actually sore from competiting in the 100 meter race and the hurdles.
Ha ha ha. The butterfly stroke can also do some damage. You definitely feel that the next day.
Jaxson tried his first sour patch kid:)
I sure wish I could have captured his "sour face"....it was darling.
This is the best I could get:)
We all spent the night in SLC...and headed to Soldier Hollow for
New Years DAY!
Soldier Hollow is a tubing hill by Park City....and we had a blast.
Jaxson warmed up to the idea pretty quickly...and kept saying "VROOM VROOM" as we'd fly down the mountain. They told me he could ride on my lap....BUT...when we got up to the lift that pulls you up the mountain they told me he had to ride on his own tube. WHAT PEOPLE????? I was bit nervous....but he did great. He cried his head off when I threw him in the tube and it took off without me.
I might even go as far as saying he was "momentarily traumatized". Whoops:)
I was a bit stressed as I watched him getting pulled up the hill while simultaneously trying to climb out:)
I may or may not have said a few choice words....but all turned out well. ha ha.
It was a wonderful day!
..... and to top it off I got to meet up with my friend Brittany from Omaha:) I hate not living closer to her....but I am super glad she comes to visit often. I am SOOOOO looking forward to her coming up for Jaxson's 2nd Birthday Party in March.
Let the planning begin....
THEME THIS YEAR: CONSTRUCTION PARTY
****It at least gives me something fun to do during these horrible post-christmas winter months...I hate January and February*****
