Why? Because we can!

We had a great fun-filled weekend!  We went to the Brian Regan show at Abravanel Hall, which was very good, and very funny. 
Sometimes, you need to laugh a little!
On our way to the show, we saw a sign that said that the Jazz were playing the Sacramento Kings tonight.  We thought, "Hmm, that sounds cool.  If we went, we could see the Jazz and we could see Jimmer play basketball."
So, after the show, we got tickets to the game.
Our theme of the weekend is "Things we can do because we don't have any kids."

Carter's homecoming

Carter was able to give his homecoming talk on January 1st.  He did a great job, and lots of friends and family came to support him.  It was a great time had by all.
 Uncle Lynn dropped by unexpectedly!

Happy New Year!

We were home in Idaho Falls for the New Year.  Maria had a great idea from growing up--the idea was--let's all take off our shoes and run around the house in the snow!  There wasn't much snow, but she and the boys did it anyway.  We celebrated the New Year in style with our family!

A trip to Lehi

We sort of feel like our Christmas vacation was divided into three segments: one at home, one at the cabin, and one in Lehi.  Our sister-in-law, Katie, was told that she had to be on strict bed rest while trying to have their 4th child (which, thankfully, is working).  Since Colby and Maria came from Virginia, they really wanted to be able to see Taylor and Katie and their kids, so we took a trip to get the whole family together.  Unfortunately, Casey was not able to come because of his basketball practice.  It was fun to play with the kids and spend time with family!

Merry Christmas!

After Carter came home, we had a great Christmas with many fun festivities!  We went to the cabin for a little while (in between Casey's basketball practices) and played on snowmobiles with our family.  Here are some pictures of the fun:
