home for the holidays: more snow!

At the top of our bucket list for the Utah winter was sledding!  Especially after this experience for James last year…

The boys had such a great time with their grandparents and aunts and uncles.  And we only had one casualty!  That I may or may not still be having wrist and neck problems from!

We also visited Uncle James’ grave with the family.  It was the first time Auggie got to go, and it was as special as it always is.  I never met John’s brother James in this life but I have no doubt he’s regularly with us, especially the boys.  We feel him close.

This ^ picture was a reenactment of the one below that was taken back in 2012.  So many more boys (and facial hairs and specs)!!  And even more boys on the horizon with Tanner on the far right up there becoming a daddy in a few weeks!  And let’s just get out there what we’re all thinking: H. boyz are hotties.
