Christmas in Boise!

Christmas is my favorite time of year! Getting together with family and friends, reflecting on the year and being thankful for the birth of Christ and everlasting life!

This year Vicki (Grant's Mom) came up as well! It was such a pleasure having her! Wish Marty and Ashley could have made it... hopefully next year we can all be together! :)

Mom and Dad - Thank you for having us and for everything you do for us on a regular basis. We love you!
Vicki - We are so glad you came this year! My parents were sad to see you go and invite you to Idaho whenever you want to get away! Love you!

Grant and I are truly lucky to have such an amazing family.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
Love and Cheers,

Mom and I hard at work!

Walking into my parents home every holiday is really an incredible experience. My Mom is so talented. I have learned and continue to learn how to decorate from my mother. Here is the dinner party I helped with and some of the decorations in the house.
Love you Mom!

Antigua Mon!

We're back! What an amazing honeymoon (belated) and vacation in general. We certainly had a memorable time! My favorite part other than relaxing with Grant was taking the circumnavigation cruise around the island. We were able to snorkel twice and visit small islands that surround Antigua as well. I found that I'm actually good at tennis and can beat most guys at pool... however, I struggled with snorkeling at first. I will admit... I am NO fish! haha. Caribbean food is spicy and flavorful! And we can’t wait for our next adventure! Here are some pictures from our trip! Enjoy!
