We have friends that live in Cedar City and we all got together and said it was about time for another sledding trip. I was certainly ready because the last time everybody went, I had to stay home and work. :( This time Carson was able to go as well! I'm not sure he had as much fun as the rest of us though... He usually loves playing in the snow but we made the mistake of taking him down on the sled right away. The hill was kinda big and he was sitting in my lap. By trying to keep us from going too fast I kept my feet in the snow. Well that also kicked up a lot of snow into our faces and he didn't like that AT ALL! From then on he was cold and in a bad mood. Poor kid! But the rest of us had fun and really enjoyed the snow. Next time we take Carson sledding we'll be sure to start him out on smaller hills! :)

This year for Christmas we stayed in St. George. It was most especially fun this year because Carson is one year older from last year and is so much more attentive and aware of everything. We went over to my parent's house on Christmas Eve for dinner and games and then stayed over night. We decided to do this because on Christmas...the more the merrier right?!! We woke up at 8:00 Christmas morning and all went upstairs to see what Santa had brought everyone.After we had gone through everything plus our stockings, we then broke into the presents! With 8 people (Mom, Dad, Nolan, Tionna, Ragna, Mori, Quinton, and Carson) we had A LOT to open! Just to make the event last longer, we all took turns opening presents one at a time. That way we all got to see what everyone got. "Oooooo! Ahhhhhh! Very nice!" ;) The whole morning, start to finish, took us about 3 hours! Carson loved opening his presents as well as everyone else's presents! He especially loved opening presents that were toys! If he found anything but, he'd toss it aside and start on the next! Carson got cars, cars, tractors, trucks, and MORE cars!!!! He has really loved these toys and spends his time lining them all up over and over again. He also got a very cool rocking horse from his Gramma Jensen. It makes sounds, wiggles it's nose, and shakes it's tail. He rides it and says, "Yee Haw!" His uncle Nolan got him a mini basketball hoop and basketball which his Grampa has taken the time to teach him to jump and dunk it! Which he them follows by clapping and telling himself "Good Dob!" He got many fun things this Christmas but those were some of the highlights. Quinton's big gift this year was a shock for his mountain bike. He also got mtn. bike shoes and mtn. bike socks. If you didn't know already....Quint loves to go mountain biking! As for me, I got a very nice comforter set for a recent purchase of our king size bed. Quint surprised me and picked it out all on his own. He did an awesome job; it's gorgeous! I also got shoes and clothes and then gift cards to go shopping! (My favorite!!!) Anyways, the rest of Christmas day we just hung out and relaxed. We watched new movies, played new games, and ate a lot of candy and food! (I think Quint finished all of his Christmas candy that day!) We finally came home Christmas night at about 11:00 and crashed in bed! I was able to get well rested for the next day...Boxing Day! (Canada) I was able to go shopping and spend some of my money that I'd received! :) It was a great Christmas!
