LIVE, FROM THE IN-LAWS!


we flew out of jfk late christmas day to spend new years with brandon's family in salt lake city. since we arrived, the sky has done nothing but empty itself all on top of us. it's beautiful and quiet and serene. we've stayed indoors mostly and i am happy to report that cabin fever strikes equally in plus-4000 square feet, just the same as it does in minus-800. cabin fever is the great equalizer. 

i popped through the house today and snapped a few photos when huck was busy with a cookie. enjoy the snow!


p.s. a quick shot from christmas morning that i've been loving:

  7. Utah, despite being germy, is GORGEOUS. Also- I never realized just how active I was in the city until I left. How keep myself moving out here with endless sidewalks??

  10. Good heavens, Utah is completely overrun with germs right now! Pure craziness! Seems like just about everyone I know was puking over Christmas. My little family all had colds just before Christmas. I didn't get it (knock on wood)...but you just watch, I'll get something from some neighbor or something. On the other hand....glory be and hallelujah for the snow!!! We haven't had a white Christmas in far too long! (Sorry it's making you cabin crazy.)

  14. there is something kind of freeing about falling asleep in your clothes. the part i like best is when you wake up in the morning and change into your pajamas for the day. so great.

  16. So lovely! I would love to go to Utah in the winter. From what I've noticed around the web is everyone is catching this bug... maybe it's spreading virally and by that I mean the web o.O I hope your family keeps those icky germs away!

  18. Its such a great time to be in Utah right now! You can take a drive through the mountains, collect icecicles with Huck, go snowshoeing with a bundled Huck in a backpack, drive to look at the frozen bubbles in Utah Lake and the glorious view, go ice skating for a buck in South Jordan while pulling Huck on a sled etc. all without getting anyone's germs. I have some more ideas on my little blog if you need some: www.spoladventureclub.blogspot.com
