Christmas with the Hawkins
I always love getting together with Josh's family when we're in Utah. I especially love Bryn having time with her cousins! She's been talking about her cousins every day since we've been home. Wish we lived closer to them! We all got together on Christmas Eve (minus Jen and Jake's families who we missed!!!) Grandpa played songs on the guitar while the kids danced around. The cousins acted out the nativity. Like last year, Bryn refused to participate. Bryn got a cute doll from the gift exchange...perfect for her stroller she got the next day! The cousins sporting their new pajamas with my wonderful in-laws. We also got together with Hawkins for a trip to the Bean Museum at BYU. They had a great Nativity scene with lots of wild animals looking at the baby Jesus. So great! And Bryn was in heaven with all the animals. The best times with the Hawkins over Christmas was the temple sealing of little Cora to Becky and Hema, and the big Luau to celebrate Cora's adoption and sealing. We're so glad we were in town for those special events.
