Major catch-up: Christmas

It's Christmas in August, haha. I'm continuing my extreme blog catch-up! Christmas was awesome. We had kind of three celebrations. First we had our own little Christmas here with just us, which was cute and fun. Beck loved the Christmas tree and the presents, and all the attention. :) And Adam did a great job and got me a Willowtree figure and a cute diaper bag and purse.

Then we headed to Boise for a week. We stayed in a hotel and did some major vegging and relaxing--it was wonderful! We also had fun shopping, bargaining with a little 10-year-old girl to go in on a purchase with me to get Beck a stuffed Nemo (it ended up being a hilarious story, and kind of pathetic in the end, but a much better deal for both of us!), getting Beck's picture taken with Santa (of whom he was a huge fan, just look at that pic!) and hanging out with family and friends. Beck got a sweet wooden airplane and a personalized rocking chair from his grandparents.

We were also lucky enough to have Adam's dad, Josh, Grandma Billie and Aunt Rebecca come visit us in Rexburg! We usually all meet up in Utah, so it was fun to have them come visit our neck of the woods. :) We had a really good time together, and Beck got a sweet little plastic wagon thingy from his grandpa he immediately fell in love with (and is still a huge fan of).
