This year we decided to find a place that was little closer to find our tree...and we recruited others to join us:) On Thursday, Nov. 1st we met Micah's parents for dinner up in Heber. Micah's dad treated us to the Claim Jumper then they headed to a nearby hotel. We had our sleeping bags and pads and met the Ellis's at Micah's Zermatt property (one of his properties he bought on auction and is up for sale) in Midway. We had a late night swim with the kids before hitting the sack. We had an early morning ahead because we needed to be in line at 5:30am to get our wrist bands to buy our Christmas tree tags. We brought our camping chairs and joined the other hundreds of crazy people who were up that early. Kaylyn slept soundly in my arms until after we got our tags and were headed home. Of course she wanted to drive (as always). We picked up some donuts and chocolate milk on the way back to the Zermatt. The Ellis's had to head back to SLC, but Allen and Janis came over and we all slept for another hour before going back to actually purchase the tree tags. Kaylyn and I kept sleeping while Christensen crew made the purchases.
|My little snow bunny. This hat was one of the purchases we made at the ski sale. Luckily it's really stretchy so it fits her beautiful big head!|
|One morning Kaylyn woke up and immediately had two very specific requests: grapes and hat on. The bib she's wearing is her favorite because it has a kitty on it.|
|Another recent and almost every wake up request is that she have her blanky wrapped around her.|
