Utah Trip-- in parts

Dear Kate and Riley,
It is going to take me forever to blog our Utah trip over Thanksgiving. We headed to Utah to bless Luke and to spend time with every member of both sides of the family! That made for a lot of people and a lot of running around but we had fun. Right before this trip I hit my all time low so far as lack of sleep is concerned. I didn't think I'd make it. But Luke was a great traveler and he actually slept better on the trip than he had his whole life! I couldn't deal with sharing a room with Dad who was snoring and Luke grunting so I made the best move ever and decided to sleep on Aunt Stacy and Uncle Andrew's couch every night while Dad and Luke shared the room. I kept the monitor on really low so I could hear Luke if he needed me and he did great. That plus having Dad around to let me sleep in and have a nap every day really helped give me the boost I needed to keep going. We had a great trip.

O'Farrell Family Christmas Party










 The kids were pretty good on the drive down. Zach got really mad when he realized I was taking pictures of him rocking out to Taylor Swift

 We had to stop to see my Clair bear while the big boys and Dad went to the BYU soccer game. So thankful for nieces.

 Brady screamed when we saw uncle Bret and refused to sit near him because "he's stinky." I felt bad and annoyed at the same time. Wish they could see their family more so they weren't scared of them! 

 Luke was definitely "most popular cousin"
More to come
