Christmas was fantastic this year! Not only did we spoil ourselves this year (because we finally can!), but our families decided to spoil us as well. We gave each other a 42 in flat screen TV, a Wii, and an HD DVD player. The Allred's gave us a camcorder, and the Vernon's gave us both Ipod Nano's as well as a trip to SPAIN!!!! That's right, Spain. We'll be leaving on May 23rd and returning on June 7th. After my brother's return from his mission there last year, my parents decided that they'd like to take everyone back this year. Luckily my boss is flexible with time off!!!!
The Vernon Christmas begins at 6:30 a.m. where we run to the front room see what Santa brought us--yes even though the youngest is 19 Santa still comes. After that we open presents from the immediate family members, and then we get ready for the day before rushing over to Grandma Vernon's house for the Swedish pancake breakfast with the extended family. After the Vernon festivities, we head to Bountiful for the Slade Christmas Dinner. It is after this dinner that our Christmas finally ends!
