So the pictures are out of order but I am too lazy to change them! So this Christmas we spent with my family. It was a lot of fun and Grace loved opening all her presents. We just hung out mostly and spent time with family. I met my future sister-in-law Chelsea and I'm so excited for her to be part of our family. The second week of our stay we made a spur of the moment trip down to Idaho to spend New Year's with Royce's family because his whole family would be there! We went to the stake family dance that my mother-in-law put on for New Year's and that was a lot of fun!! We mostly just played games and relaxed. This was the first time Grace met her cousins so she was really excited. It was a great holiday season! Thanks to our parents for everything! We love you all!!

Aunt Colby, Brittany, and Meredith brought their dogs and Grace had lots of fun with them

Grace has become quite the daddy's girl and lately she has just crawled up on Royce and fallen's so sweet!

This is my mom's traditional Christmas dress that she's worn every year for 16 mama!! Also Grace in her Christmas dress!!

I just love that your mom has worn the same Christmas dress for 16 years--that's awesome! That was crazy we ran into you at Walmart in Idaho---small world! Glad to be back though!
