Christmas Vacation. I know it's a little late but things have been VERY busy around here as I have jumped into student teaching and Nathan finishes his last semester at school.

This year we headed to Vegas for the first part of our break in hopes for some warm and sunny weather. Unfortunately it was in the 40's and rained the whole time we were there. We did however get to stop by and visit the Hoover Dam. I have been a few times but this was a first for Nathan and he was actually pretty impressed.

A few days later we were able to attend the wedding of my little brother Lewis and his new wife Crystal. This happened to be the real reason we were in Vegas. All of my immediate family, except James, who is on a mission in Mexico were able to attend the wedding and it was a lot of fun to get to hang out with everyone for a few days. It does however get pretty chaotic and loud when everyone is around.

After the wedding we headed down to Oklahoma to spend Christmas with my family. Two days later we headed to Missouri and stayed a few days with Nathans grandparents. We had so much fun with them and were sad when we had to leave.

After that it was back to Oklahoma for a few days and then back to Rexburg. It was a fun holiday but one we won't repeat for a loooooong time... or ever. Being in the car for 60 hours in 2 weeks can be a bit tiring.

One of these is headed our way.... Baby Wilcoxson should be arriving around June 30th... but if he/she wants to come a few weeks early that is just fine.
