Christmas 2015

We felt like world travelers this Christmas. We did a good amount of driving and stayed in 4 different places. We also got to see all three sides of our families on actual Christmas day. It was one for the books.

We started in Yakima for a couple of days where we found that Ezra loves snow. It was really his first interaction with it was so funny. I hate being cold but I don't think the cold affects him because he would cry when it was time to go in--I cry (inside) when it is time to go out! Oh childhood.

We then drove to boise and stayed one night at Kelly and Jenna's who are fully equipped for children even though they don't have kids yet. Such great aunt and uncle!

The Monday before Christmas we headed to Lehi from Boise and on the way we stopped to meet the long awaited and precious Baby Cooper. We love him and his parents!

Monday night we finally made it to Lehi where we stayed until Christmas day. We rented a house with Kasey's family right across the street from Kurt and Elise (kase's older brother), it was perfect. We would go over after putting Ezra to bed and play games or just chat. My favorite night was when we played "celestial companions", boy was that funny-- the newleyest weds won.  In Lehi we got family pictures, played in the snow, Ez played fetch with Bo, the dog, over and over and over, had fun with cousins, ate lots of food (of course), and had the first Hendricks lipsync competition. The Hendricks Cup went to the Kurt and Elise Hendricks clan! Well done.

On Christmas we were up early and woke up to a ton of snow! We opened gifts and the best part was watching Ezra open his 2 gifts we got him: a box of balloons and bubbles.
Then we got ready and headed to Tremonton to see the Sandall family. We met Zae for the first time and Ezra was very timid with all the new faces. Then headed up to Rexburg and surprised my family. My mom's reaction was so cute, it was all worth it to drive Christmas day to surprise everyone. Although, Ezzy was done and was not even excited about opening gifts. He was tired and just as sick of the car as we were. We are looking forward to the day that family comes to us so we don't have to travel on Christmas. That being said, we loved being with family over the holidays!

Mind you, these outside pictures taken in the Rexburg snow, it was -11 degrees, but Ezra insisted on being outside. Such a great dad!
