christmas vacay part 5

WYOMING!
wyoming was just grand getting to spending another week and a half with the cutler family.
some days everyone was there,
some days only the kids were there,
and some days we were the only ones there.
it was a relaxing end to our vacation.

we drove quickly yet safely up to wyoming to be with the cutlers for new year's eve.
that night we played balderdash which turned out to be a hilariously perfect game for that evening.
somehow we all made it to midnight!

we unanimously thought maxson looked hilarious with two halves of an easter egg on his ears.
tayli played with us in the snow.

SETTLERS
man we had such a blast playing this game.
each game was so different.
i was a great persuader.
casey was a great complainer player.
tayli was a great trader.
karlee was a great sport, she literally had the worst spots every time.
and derek was barbaric, seriously that guy is ruthless.
we probably played at least 7 different games together and wish we could have played more.

maxson's phone radar has continued to reach breaking highs.
he's still obsessed with phones and putting them to his ears.
he loves it when they play music, he carries it around and just bounces to the music.
honestly he just loves to have control over them, ha.
after a little while he may take a little nibble on it too.
we pretty much never let him actually have the phone but his determination to find them is persistent.

great old tayli,
making us laugh real hard one morning.

grandpa and fran came up to wyoming for the shortest visit ever but we were ever so grateful to see them.
they returned from their mission to equador last fall and told us all about their adventures.
definitely got the missionary bug in us!
