It's been quite a while since I've posted, but I see from looking at my friends blogs that I am not the only one who got behind during this past month. We have been away from home for a long time, it feels like, but we are finally back and enjoying being home again, with a little bit of free time left til Ryan starts classes again next Monday.
Picking up where we left off, we made another quick weekend trip down to Utah on the 20th of December. Our old friends, Brandon and Tonya Barker, drove up from Arizona to visit family for Christmas. Brandon's sister Brooke was kind enough to let us crash at her place for one night and we got to have a fun, but short visit with everyone. We met baby Haylee and played with JT, who is now so big and smart. We definitely miss the days when we took it for granted that we would hang out with our best friends every weekend. We lived a 30 second walk away from each other, and stayed up til the early morning playing board games (Boys against girls, of course.)
