The plan was to go snowboarding with Adam's family on Saturday,
until we realized half of us (including the kids) couldn't go.
So we went to dinner in Salt Lake and went to see the lights instead.
Mmmm- Bucca di Beppo- Italian food.
|Collin was so funny- he sat and stared like this for a while after he woke up from a nap in his dad's arms...|
Oliver the snuggler... he would snuggle all day if we let him.
|Sini, Lincoln, Elliott & Kenzie|
|Ames, Collin and their gigantic chocolate cake!|
With our warm dinner in our bellies,
next we headed outside to the coooooold to see the lights at Temple Square.
They did not disappoint.
And either did our handwarmers that most of us kept in our gloves and pockets.
Mister Lincoln held his in his freezing, gloveless hands.

|Ollie telling everyone how hot his hands were!|
Ames and Cody braved the cold temps too...
they live in warm Las Vegas so this was big. :)
Billions of lights!
|Tanner & Megs|
|With Grandpa Steve|
|Christie and her bundled Gabby- she was sitting so still- so funny!|
|Grammy & Grandpa|
How do they get all those lights on the tree???
Walking around the beautiful temple and checking out all the fountains.

I love these next few pictures... you can see what makes Linc happy:
He's a brave little 2 year old!
|still holding his handwarmers|
We had a great time seeing the beautiful lights and feeling the spirit of Christmas!
But pictures don't do it justice.
You'll just have to go for yourself.
And here's a tip- handwarmers and hot chocolate. :)
