Merry Christmas to everyone...a few weeks late. We had a wonderful Christmas! Brayden was so much fun this year. Santa brought him a spring horse to ride. He wasn't so sure about it at first. He just kept staring at it and making his horse sound. But after a few minutes he decided that it was safe to ride, and after that he had to play on it for about five minutes until he could open the rest of his presents.

It only took him about two seconds to figure out how to open the wrapping paper off of his presents after that he was an opening machine.

After opening presents and spending some time at home we went up to Caleb's parents' house to spend time with his family. Elder Bigelow (Caleb's younger brother) called us from Brazil and we all got to talk to him for a bit. It was good to hear from him. He sounds like he is doing awesome. Still getting used to living in another country, the language and being away from family. He bore his testimony to us all in Porteguese. It was so fun to talk to him.
Later that afternoon we then went to my parents' house. After the snow plows came and dug out the streets in Inkom we all were able to make it out to the "country" (as my mom puts it). We then had a yummy ham dinner and opened some presents. We also got a fun surprise from Aaron and Amy- Brayden gets another little cousin---We are so excited.
As you can see we had a very wonderful Christmas. We are so blessed to have family close by. We are also so grateful for the Lord Jesus Christ. That he was willing to come to earth to make the ultimate sacrifice for us so that we may live with our Heavenly Father again.
Merry Christmas to all, and we love all of you guys.
