Christmas season has been jolly as married people!
We started off attending Billy's Mom's graduation from her school that taught her about the techniques of emotional healing. She was hands-down the star of the show--best speech, best song, best flowers. She was fantastic.
She also gave us her new keyboard to store at our house until she needs it!!! I WAS SO HAPPY! I love having a piano in our house! It is the best!
Billy is relearning the piano too, so i especially like it.
Mom and Dad came into town and we went night skiiing. All our welcome to join us again! It was so fun and we will all have a blast; affordable, fun and close!
We have been wanting a Christmas tree but were waiting patiently for people to throw out their old trees to Grounds; little did we know that the tree lot next to Wyview would throw out all of their trees to Grounds.
So we got FIVE CHRISTMAS TREES!
Four of them just sat outside our house haha but we did bring in one of them and decorate it up. (even though Billy had to structure his own jimmy rig with some tow rope and a plastic bin since, who knew, live trees need water in their stands. And of course, every store in Provo had already sold all their live tree stands)
On Christmas Eve we went snow shoeing. We borrowed the shoes from my supervisor and headed for Mt. Timpanogos, which had CRAZY amounts of snow.
It was so fun, but kinda hard at first and I kept ending up in a little snowball haha
We spent the evening at the Hiatt residence carrying out their family Christmas Eve traditions, which included reading some Christmas stories.
Christmas morning we celebrated!! We didn't have that many presents, but it was fun to open them with Billy
We also saw Les Mis (which we still can't decide if we really liked a ton) and spent the day with the Hiatt family before randomly deciding to drive to Monroe to surprise the Carters and Mom and Dad!! It was a good surprise and a good Christmas night.
We worked a ton, and then drove through roughness to get to Colorado where we are now gazing at Pikes Peak and watching Mom and Dad play Angry Birds on their anniversary haha and soon we will run the Rescue Run!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the Hiatts!
