Christmas 2012

Nathan and I went to Phoenix for Christmas this year. I can't tell you how much I love a 65 degree Christmas. We had such a great time and are missing family and warm weather :) We went orange picking with Paul and Emily and Paul's grandparents house. It was so fun and the best oranges I have ever tasted!

 After orange picking we met up with some friends in Mesa and went to lunch as Sauce, mmm delicious! 
Cam's mom's house has a little lake in her backyard so we went for a boat ride.

 We also made gingerbread houses! Well ours is a gingerbread train.

The whole gang and their gingerbread houses. Can't tell you enough how great of a group of friends we have!

On Christmas Eve Eve we had a party at my parents house called "A Night in Bethlehem" where we ate kabobs and other middle eastern food. It was a blast.

On Christmas Eve morning the whole family went to the Phoenix Zoo! I love zoos :)

Christmas Day, did I mention that Nathan and I finally met the twins and Emily's new baby! We loved being surrounded by cute babies.

Tristan and Jarrett modeling there new hats.

My mom's Christmas table set up, she is the greatest cook around!

 Nathans parents came to town for New Years and I didn't take a single picture on my camera with them! I am so mad at myself. But we had such a great time with them. We took them to the Botanical Gardens where we saw lots and lots of cacti.
And on my and Nathan's anniversary we went back to the temple we were married in to look at the lights! We didn't do anything special for our anniversary this year because we are trying to save money for the trip we just booked to Uganda!

And sweet baby Nolan was blessed while we were home. 

We sure do miss the family and Arizona!!
