Yeah, I'm finally posting about Christmas. The weekend before Christmas we went down to Colorado for a Christmas party at Misty's and for Destiny's baptism. We left Thursday after Zariph got off work. Friday we just hung out and went shopping. We decorated cookies Friday evening. Saturday, Zariph, Miranda, and Roy all went skiing. It was Miranda's first time snowboarding. Boston got sick from something and ended up throwing up everything he ate all day Saturday. It was a little scary for me, but he was not acting sick. Even when I was changing him out of his thrown up clothes, he was laughing. Zariph's parents and Teliece came down on Saturday. Saturday night was our Christmas party. Misty made a big turkey with all the sides, she really went all out. Roy let out that there was someone coming at 8:15, but Misty quickly stopped him from saying anything else. So, the joke the whole evening was trying to figure out who was coming at 8:15. Misty said that we would want to be thirsty...We had a fun party, we read from Luke chapter 2, then we played the candy bar game, they bought Boston "Puffs" instead of candy, that was thoughtful of them. Then the girls sang a few Christmas songs for us, and we exchanged presents. It was nearing 8:15 and we were all getting curious and asking a lot of questions. She said it was something we've never done before, at least together. I thought maybe Santa was coming, but he came to our party a few years ago. I thought maybe it was a hay ride and we were drinking hot chocolate. We also thought maybe it was some sort of drinking contest. Zariph's mom thought Frosty was coming, and then he'd melt and we had to drink him all up...Anyway, around 8:20 we looked outside and saw a Hummer limo! They rented a limo for us all to ride around and look at Christmas lights together. I couldn't believe it, I was not expecting that at all. It was awesome! We were all really excited. The thirsty part was that the drinks in the limo were included, so she wanted us to drink all that we could. It was a neat experience. I was nervouse that Boston would throw up while we were out, or cry too much because he was hungry, but he really did okay. He cried a bit, but slept most of the time. We rode around for two hours and looked at some neat light displays. There was one house that had their own radio station and the lights were synchronized to go with the music. It was a memorable night. Then Sunday we went to church, and afterwards was Destiny's baptism. She asked Zariph to baptize her. After that baptism Misty had an open house at her house, we ate quickly and packed up the car to come back home. We left about 6 p.m. I thought it was going to be an awful drive through the mountains and with it being dark and we would be tired. But surprisingly, the drive was fast and I wasn't too tired. Zairph drove the whole way, Boston and Miranda slept in the back the whole way, and we didn't even stop. It really was a pretty good drive.
