Last night we decided to go yo temple square to see the Lights. I've only been 1 one other time with my family a few years ago.Dax was finally old enough to be out in the cold. It way so crowded but fun nonetheless. Dax said ohhh ahhh and loved the green lights. The nativity was beautiful. I couldn't believe how much work goes into it all. We even saw our neighbors which was really fun. After we picked up costa watched how the Grinch stole Christmas very cute movie.

We definitely had a fun Friday. John had the day off so after running errands we went to Jeff and Amy's to say goodbye they are moving to Oregon until June. After we were starving so we ate at Johnny Rockets the shakes were yummy the food not so much. After we walked around the outlets we went into Santa little cottage we wrote a letter to Santa and visited him. Dax was a little bashful but friendly. Next we went to Thanksgiving point to see Reindeer! They were adorable and just laid there. Dax loved them and kept saying hi hi! I definitely want to make these Christmas traditions. After we went grocery shopping and watched Christmas with the cranks. We've watched 1 Christmas movie a day since December 1st so fin!
We all went on a family hike Friday morning the day after Thanksgiving. It was a lot of fun. I'm not an avid hiker by any means but I'm trying because it's a good workout and John loves hiking and being outdoors. There was some beautiful scenery. lots of trees A HUGE beautiful river. Dax loved it! The weather was perfect. It was a easy hike and at the end if the hike there was an old deserted wooden house we all took pics by it. I did well considering I don't hike and I'm out of shape. I still have 100pd of baby weight left. Going back was a little tough towards the end but we all made it. Definitely want to start hiking regularly.
Thanksgiving morning my sweet Sister in Law Amy was Sweet enough to take our family pictures for our Christmas card's. We went to a huge open park and the weather was perfect. Leave a everywhere perfect for fall. We sat on benches stood near tunnels sat near huge trees. Dax was good until the very end he had had enough. He smiled big and laughed a lot. Our colors definitely compliment us our skin tone. We did marons and Grey's. We got Dax outfit at Target and old navy.Mine at H&M and target and John's at JC Penny. I was getting frustrated though because Dax was so attached to John the whole week since he was off work he literally wanted nothing to do with me including during the photo shoot. Luckily we got a few good shots. I love my little family so much. Last year we did a photo shoot in December a total winter wonderland I liked that better but this was still fun and we weren't freezing. Next year I would love to do one in summer in a big open field in highland and actually have props. Well see. Here are some pics from the shoot.
