Everything pulled into 1

So I have been putting off updating my blog because every time I get on here I just want to look at everyone else's blogs! But I have put it off long enough!!

At the beginning of December Olivia had a concert on temple square for choir and we got to go see her! She did Amazing and it was so fun watching everyone.

Cute Liv!

The Night before my cousin who is also one of my very best friends Caden "Cado" got home from his Mission to Holland! It was so exciting to see him come down the escalator and now that he is home it is like he never left!

He is Home!!

Then for Christmas we headed up to Washington! We haven't been back there since we moved and it was nice to be back! We had a great time up there, we went to 3 movies, ate TONZ of food, played even more Hand and Foot, and just had a great time! It made it even better when we got to hang out with Ashlyn! I just love my favorite little niece! I can say favorite because she is the only one! Then we were going to try to make it up to Rexburg for New Years but the roads were to bad. So we had fun playing games and watching the ball drop. Then we headed out to Rexburg and the roads were sooooo scary! Brek thinks it is funny when I get so scared but it really is NOT! I was like bawling because I was so scared! But we made it to twin falls and stayed the night. Then on the way to Rexburg we stopped at his Grandma and Grandpa Tolmans house. I had never been there before so that was fun! Then we got to my house and just had fun being there. I love that place and always have a hard time leaving! But we got to go to my beautiful friend Diana's Wedding Reception, a High School Basketball game, Craigo's pizza, and played lots of games! We seriously have the best families in the world!!

Elphie.... I am not a dog person... not an animal person at all! But this little thing has got into my heart! She was lost one day and my mom and I were looking for her everywhere! My mom went to drive around the neighborhood and I looked out the back and I see Elph trying so hard to get through the deep snow from the neighbors house! She had come all the way from the park in Hidden Valley! That is pretty far.... It was like watching Shadow from Homeward Bound, I felt so bad that I ran through the snow with flats and no socks (FREEZING) to go save her! haha So my family can no longer say I am mean to her!
Then when we got back Brek started his new semester at school and then a week later the whole Carter fam came down to Salt Lake loaded up our apartment and we headed to Ogden! It took 5 trucks and a few trailers but we made it in all one trip! Now Brek rides the front runner to school, and is secretly loving it I think because he can just relax and not drive! I love being at home with my grandpa, and hopefully soon my grandma will be able to come home from the hospital!

And Finally Hayden's Farewell was last Sunday! That is so crazy to think that my little bro is going to be leaving us for 2 years! We couldn't be more proud of him though! He did so AMAZING on his talk and I just know he is going to be one AMAZING missionary! Wisconsin is lucky to get him! The Lunch after was just as amazing with so many treats from Nana Liz and soups from neighbors and yummy rolls! It was a jam packed weekend from watching the twins in dance, to cleaning, to doing everyones hair so we all could look pretty for our Elder!! It was a great weekend.
