Kurt's cousins stopped by for a visit. They are all married and grown up. They were having a guy's weekend. It was great to visit and catch up. Cy, Thayne, and Jordan are brothers. John, Taylor, and Lincoln are brothers.
The tree is up, and Christmas cards are being addressed. Never before has this happened before December. This year I decided that I wanted it to be a stress free December and I wanted to enjoy the tree. Usually we put it up, it sits for a week with no decorations, then we decorate it and a week later it's Christmas, and then it comes down just a few days later. Not this year! I'm loving being ahead of schedule!
We did our annual get together with the Kaaiakamanu's, the Hillman's, and the Parker's a little early this year. We decided to go the luxury route away from camping and cabins and rent a condo and go where it wasn't snowing. St. George it was! The weather was great for the most part. We hiked Canaraville Falls. It was an awesome slot canyon just outside of St. George. All the kids were troopers as we hiked through water for the majority of the time. And it was FREEZING!
The boys brought their bikes and did some biking. We also went down in the lava tubes, broke open glow sticks and played hide and seek.
Since we were there for Halloween, we went trick or treating there. The boys were a little disappointed as we got started late and they didn't get as much candy as they would have liked. My favorite costume was Beth as Prince.
I love getting together with these people. We never do anything adventurous until we get together with these guys. Every time I find out just how chicken/wimpy I am, but always discover that I can do it! Especially after seeing these kids plow through. They are tough!
