visit to the wet wet world of southern utah

We had the awesome chance to get away for 5 days to visit my parents in Southern Utah.  Normally their weather is about like ours (unseasonably warm this time of year), but we happened to visit when the Pineapple Express storm system was blowing through.  It had been raining for 3 days and then proceeded to rain the next 5 of our visit.  I don't think it has yet stopped!  Made for a different kind of Christmas weather, but I'm not complaining!

Grandma kept us busy and fed and happy!  We had a nice Christmas dinner, visited the temple, opened presents, and watched lots of Christmas movies.  Here are some pictures from our trip.
