We went to the great northwest for Christmas this year..... We flew in to Seattle, Washington ( I have two sisters who live there ) then we drove down to Oregon ( My parents and two other sisters live there )
We had a good time and got pretty spoiled by everyone.

The quilt I am holding is my birthday gift that my wife surprised me with for my 27th birthday.
From 1996 to 1999 while attending college, I purchased t-shirts from various fraternity events. When I graduated, I put them in an old pillowcase and moved them from San Marcos to Sumitt, to Modena, to Stassney, to Bannock and finally here to Montoya Circle. I actually had plans to teach myself to quilt and about two months ago mentioned to Tara, "hey have you seen the pillowcase with my old tshirts."
I don't know how she pulled it off, but in her last few weeks of being pregnant she was able to cut my tshirts into squares and make the quilt without me ever figuring out what she was doing. I was so sick on my birthday that I did not even open my present until the 2nd and when I pulled it out, I was so happy that I was brought to tears.
Hopefully, when Phoenix is ready to go to BYU, he can take it with him.
