Christmas in not-quite-July

Blogging failure, that's what I am. Here it is, June, and I haven't even blogged about Christmas yet. Ugh. Please bear with me as I attempt to catch up over the next couple of weeks.

Well, we had Christmas once upon a time and it was a blast! After two very long plane rides with a crawling baby, we finally made it to Utah to spend Christmas with the Cartwrights. Christmas with the Cartwrights...I'm not sure if that should be a straight to DVD film or a reality TV show. In any case...

We did lots of fun things like:

Destroy Grandma and Grandpa's clean house

Crawl in circles around the dining room

Visit Temple Square to look at the Christmas lights

Very concerned at the lookout point in the Joseph Smith Building

Hyrum with his namesake--Hyrum Smith.

Contemplating jumping in the reflecting pool...

Crawling up every stair he can possibly find. This kiddo loves stairs.

Play Just Dance! about a bizzilion times.


Bang on toilets to celebrate Christmas Day


And held an early birthday party for the soon-to-be one year old


And that, my friends, is how you do Christmas with the Cartwrights.
