We had a wonderful Christmas season. We jammed a ton of activities into just a couple of weeks, but we definitely maximized our time.
We got Disneyland passes so we went at least 1-2 times a week.
Being naughty with the Chamberlin's.
We went to the tree light at Fashion Island with the Chamberlins and Mclane's.
Taylor and I went to the Ritz Carlton tree lighting.
Being crazy with my brothers at Disneyland.
We had a couples ugly Christmas sweater party. We danced, ate, and exchange white elephant gifts.
Julie and I chaperoned the Irvine dance.
We snuggled and watched Christmas movies.
We made lots and lots of caramels. I made 4 cookie sheets of caramels to hand out to friends, ward members, and co-workers. Taylor was a huge help! Don't know what I would have done without him.
How we packaged the caramels.
Our official last night at Disneyland with Chamberlin's and Mclane's.
I had a Christmas craft exchange with some girlfriends. We all drew names and made a craft for that person. It was such a fun night!
There was this dress at Anthro that I had to have... but wasn't wiling to pay the price. So Kym came to the rescue and made the exact same dress, but with sleeves. I wore the dress for Christmas Sunday.
Kristi came into town so we grabbed dinner at Bandera and then hit the Balboa Boat Parade.
Had the annual Goodsell/Reese Christmas party. Dad and Taylor showed up in the exact same shirt.
We spent Christmas up in Utah with Taylors family before they moved to Texas. We got together with some of our dearest couple friends from our Provo days. We all were in town for the holidays, so we had to stop at Kneaders for the french toast.
My favorite part of the vacation was skiing at Deer Valley. If you know me, you know I'm completely obsessed with Deer Valley. I become like a little girl and I am just so happy. I love the groomed runs, and how you ski through gorgeous homes. Dying to get back there...
Ended our trip with Florence Family pictures.
It was a wonderful Christmas and I am grateful we got to spend it up in the snow.
