Christmas 2006

Wow. I'm finally blogging about Christmas!

So, we were with Rebecca's family in Utah for our first Christmas together. One of the reasons was that Rebecca's brother, Joseph, was getting married (to Lacey) the week before in Manti. It was a terrific wedding!

It was c-o-l-d!


Half of the ward Christmas program consisted of the Olson family and their wood.


For Christmas Eve, we travelled to Ephraim, where Rebecca's dad's family live. We swerved off the road barely not missing a deer and had to push the van back onto the road. I, of course, decided to document the event instead of help!


Every year, there are performances from each family. Rebecca's family didn't have anything prepared, so I decided to show off a newly acquired stupid-human-trick. Click on the picture to watch!

Christmas was excellent.

OK, I don't know how many people are reading this, but I have to claim at least partial credit for the stunt. My roommate Ryan (aka Bobert) taught me that trick. The wrapper really does come off that easily! I didn't get the hang of catching it in my mouth afterwards-- I suppose I need practice. Tim on the other hand is a natural, he caught it on his second (and almost every subsequent) try.
