Mia was glad to be off of the Plane and excited to have her coat on:) She didn't really like how big and puffy it was, I think she felt restricted in it but she was happy to have it once we got out in the cold.
She also started practicing her somersaults this week,
After church we put her down for a nap in her sleeper to keep her cozy warm, but when she woke up she was ready to play with grandma.
By the way... grandpa is ticklish.
The next day there was a dusting of snow and Mia had her first brief experience with the white stuff. she was confused, and was pretty timid. This snow didn't last very long and was melted in a couple of hours.
Christmas Eve we went to Blackfoot to visit Dee's grandma and grandpa. Grandpa is in inpatient rehab after a fall, and we didn't manage to snap pictures while visiting him. Sorry grandpa.
Mia took a liking to Great-grandma.
...And her rocking chair.
While we were there Dee and his dad went through old photos and took pictures of some of them. way to slip in a little family history.
On Christmas Eve, Dee's family has a tradition of doing a Jerusalem Supper, where they dress up a characters from the bible, and eat pitas and olives and the like.
Here is Craig's family all dressed up.
And some of the food we enjoyed.
Then we were off to bed to get ready for the next day... well not really. We went out and saw Christmas lights and then stayed up all night talking 'till we almost couldn't see straight. Only then did we go to bed. Actually we stayed up late every night while we were there. Good thing we didn't have to work in the morning.
