Christmas Eve at Temple Square

It was COLD!!! I forgot how cold it get here, Washington got cold but nothing like this. I thought my nose was going to fall off, but I'm just a big baby. The Guthrie family has a tradition that on Christmas Eve they gather together, eat crepes, see the lights at Temple Square in Salt Lake and open their pajamas. This year Linda switched things around and we had crepes first then open the gifts and then went and saw the lights. This new schedule worked wonderfully, she is always full of great ideas. Nick was excited to see the lights because this is the first time he's celebrated Christmas in two years, the previous years he has been deployed with the Navy. I think that everyone had a great time.
Nick & Me Streator, Shawn & Nick Kaite, Elizabeth & Shawn, and the family: Shawn, Linda, Nick, Me, Matt, Sharee, Carson, Jesse, Jessica, Streator, Jake, Alicia, Jared, Elizabeth & Katie. (Randy & Cassi aren't pictured, they are living in New Hampshire)

Halloween 2008

K, I'm trying to get post and pictures caught up. We've had computer problems (to say the least) so I'm getting as much done today just in case the computer has stress again. Nick & I haven't been home for Halloween in 7 years and I wasn't sure quite what to expect at the Halloween party. There were tons of people and everyone was dressed up and it was a lot of fun. Jared, Shawn & Nick went through so many costumes that night so I'll put the best of the lot on.
Nick & I are on the left, Nick is an Angle wearing a cowboy hat, Jared is the busty blond, Shawn in the blond in glasses, Katie is an Angle holding Streator, and Sharee is the blond packin' heat.

Family Pictures

Shawn & Linda wanted family pictures done (Randy and Cassie are missing because they are having an adventure in New Hampshire while Randy attends law school. Go Randy!!!) The pictures were taken in the park below Farmington Canyon in the middle of November. The weather was wonderful, Linda was hoping for snow but I'm glad that it was pretty dry. I didn't get any pictures with everyone but here are a couple of picture I did get.
Nick & I being silly, Nick being the Karate Kid and Nick making faces at Streator.
