We had a very busy Christmas! We spent a short time with my parents in West Jordan before driving to Boise to spend Christmas with our Brown Family. We had a nice, relaxing time and enjoyed all the family and fun that was there. After Christmas we drove out to Auburn, California so that we could visit Jared's grandparents. We felt a little guilty because I've never been out there and Jared hadn't been in five years. While there we went to the Jelly Belly Factory and found a case lot sale! Tons of candy extremely discounted - including my favorites - Sunkist Fruit Gems. The next day we drove down to San Francisco and spent the day driving around with the crazy people. The pizza was great, though. We really enjoyed our time with the full house: Mom, Dad, Chris, Matt, Carisa, Tyler, Susan, Craig, Chelsea, Carlie, Sam, William, Laurie, Todd, Michelle, Camille, Cyndi, Caitlyn, Grandma, Grandpa, Jared, and I. But after two weeks away from home, it was really nice to return to my own bed.
In other news, those of you that haven't heard, Jared and I are finally pregnant! We are very excited and praying that everything goes well. As a joke, we've told our grandmothers that we are naming the baby Phred - thus the mention in previous posts.
