Christmas fun

Last thursday was the wonderful day we celebrate the christ's birthday and get free gifts from our parents no matter how old we get. It is a wonderful holiday. In my opinion its the best holiday ever invented but not because of the free candy spending less on gas (even if it is down aton) and getting free gifts its about the feelings we feel inside and the fun we have with our family's talking about old memory's and plans for the future and how we are going to stop eating sugar in a week so we can loose thous extra poundage we hate so much ha. Just kidding about the last one. I just love it. This year it was a bit different not having my dad there but it actually wasn't to to bad I had a good cry about it and then I went and hung out with my family and realized how blessed I am to have them and know I will see my dad again some day. I really missed having him there thou. Here are some pictures I took of my cute nephew with all the new toy's he got from my mom. Enjoy and watch the fun but sad video of brigham's new friends enjoy.

I finaly get to go on my trip to Israel. I am so excited. I have said ever sence I found out my cousin's were moving to Israel that I would go there wile they live there for the next 4 years now I guess. I love these cousin's so so much. They are probably the one's I am closest to and I am so jelouse that they actually live there. I am happy I will be able to experience some of what they live every day for three wonderful weeks in march. I dont know if I will get to go to Jerusalem that is about an hour away from there house I believe but I sure hope so. I am just excited to experience this really fun trip and gain a cultural experience that I will never forget. Here are some pictures of my cousin's and cool things they have done in Israel for the past year and half. I love you all.
