We had a wonderful December!! We were surrounded with family and friends and it was great!!
The first weekend in December we spent in Salt Lake City seeing the lights on Temple Square. It was beautiful!! Gavin and Kara went down with us and Grandma. We met Michele and Kenny and their family and Megan and her kids. We had a great time!
Here is some of the family: Grandma Welling, Parker, Gavin, Taryn, Michele, Anne, Drista and Roy. The lights were so beautiful!!

It was wonderful to be able to see the lights on Temple Square this year.
The next weekend we went to Gavin's graduating from Utah State University! We are so proud of you, Gavin!! Way to go!!
After graduation, Roy, Kara, Gavin and Anne!! We were going to take pictures outside, but there was a snow storm out there!! We had a great time and Megan and her girls and Michele and her three youngest were able to come!!
Christmas was a little different this year. We called it a Senior Citizen's Christmas!! My parents were there, along with Grandma Welling!! We had a pretty low-key day but we had fun!!On the 26th day of December, we had the Nicholas Christmas Party here in Fielding at the Town Hall. Grandma and Grandpa Nicholas are in the background visiting with family. Trevor Tustison is busily reading a book!
Bridget, Drace and Michaela having fun at the party.
After the party, we invited everyone here to ice skate on our ice sheet! Ainsley Kingsford is trying out here new skates and Parker Kingsford is playing hockey. Anne, Melissa, Kara and Nancy enjoying the cold and watching the ice skaters!

Drace and Megan Ricord out having fun on the ice!! We were so proud of all of the kids who stayed with the ice skating. Some of them got pretty good!
It has been a very enjoyable December! The thing we loved the most is being with family again. We missed that so much in Kazakhstan!! It was good to have family get-togethers in our home again!
We hope your holidays were also wonderful!
