Christmas was so much fun this year. Having an almost one-year-old just opened our eyes to what it is all about. We also realized how exciting it was to share the true meaning of Christmas and we had many opportunities to do so!
One night we went downtown and went to Temple Square to see the most beautiful lights!
The Mormon Temple
The Toones. :) BRRRRRRR
We traveled to Arizona to visit Lee's family. These pics are a little out of order but we went to Scottsdale and to Pine. Macie and Mommy flew and Daddy drove, knowing we had many presents to take and many more to bring home!
Macie opening Tyler's gift. A FUN DOGGIE!

Before we left (and before we got REALLY Sick :() we skyped and opened gifts with Grammy and Grampy in Kansas. This is a book from Aunt Peggy.

Macie fell and bumped her head at Grandma and Grandpas. Mommy was consoling her. :(
Who needs presents? I love the ribbon!
Christmas Morning! YEAH!
Our small group had a Birthday Party for Jesus. We all came and decorated Cupcakes and played. We also brought gifts to give to underprivileged children in Salt Lake. Loved it! Thank you Nicki!

Macie discovering her tongue
One of the highlights of the trip was getting together with Kristi, my dear friend from American Heart Association days in AZ. She moved to Denver and we were both in Scottsdale visiting family. I was able to meet her darling daughter Emma Paige and she met Macie. The girls had so much fun together! :)
I also got to see Cathy and Bobby briefly. They are still my favorite mentors/parents from afar. :) Why didn't I get a picture?????
Again, a little out of order, but here is Macie noshing after our Temple lights tour. :)
Hanging at Gandmommy and Papas.
Climbing up the couch
