Today we took my family and headed up to Trent’s farm for an adventure. With all the snow down in the valley you would have thought the farm would be covered, but unfortunately there wasn’t as much as we thought. Despite the lack of massive amounts of snow, we still had a blast sledding, snowmobiling and just being together. Trent has these crazy cool sleds that have metal skis on the bottom and they were so fast, slightly dangerous, but kept us entertained for hours. My mom was her usual organized self and brought up a delicious lunch for all of us. My dad had way too much fun riding the four wheeler and snowmobiles. I have the greatest parents in the entire word. What a joy it was to be together having so much fun! We played, froze, snacked and laughed the day away.
Faith is a prime example of what happens if you’re stuck with Eliza and the bottom of the sledding hill…You get a million pictures taken of you. Isn’t she absolutely darling? Let’s be honest, all my siblings are pretty adorable.
I think Emma and Sam should be ski goggle models. Don’t you agree?
A word about these brother-in-laws. The four oldest girls in our family got married this past summer, crazy I know…Growing up in a family with 7 girls and one boy, these four new brothers added a whole new dynamic to our family. Things are definitely different but we couldn’t love them more. Brigham now has some guys to do guy things with and my little sisters now have four new big brothers who tease them way too much but also care for them way too much. Not only does our family have to get used to the new boys, but these boys are accomplishing the ginormous feat of getting used to us. Us Jacksons are a wild bunch…just ask T. We sure are grateful for these new additions and we can’t wait for the adventures to come! (Not pictured, Ben, who we sure miss!)
Selfies with a big camera can be pretty tricky but Lucy and I managed to get a good one. 🙂
The day could not have been more perfect. We were missing Ben and Grace, who are in Ecuador for the next year, but we know they are doing great things over there. Our winter break has been filled with families visiting from Texas, adventures, family parties, lots of love and just overall goodness. This truly is such a wonderful time to be together and we feel so lucky to have such amazing family everywhere we turn.
Happy Holidays everyone!
