Our Christmas Break

Well! We had a lot of fun over the break. I upoloaded these pictures backwards so I'll just start from the most recent.

On Wednesday, December 30th Ben and I decided to do something fun to celebrate our 6 month anniversary (Dec. 19th) so we booked a room at the Anniversary Inn and went out to dinner.

Ben took me to the Bombay House, where we went for our first Valentine's Day together.

Then we drove up to Salt Lake. Our room was the South Pacific room. The shower came down a huge rock in the wall:
Ben was sure we were in the Pacific Ocean.
Ben's new hat I bought him for Christmas. He said "Now I just need a gun to match my hat." HA!
The bed was in this awesome bungalow thing.

For Christmas, my sister and my mom got me some photo editing software called Photoshop Lightroom. I love it! And I've been having a lot of fun with it. Here are some of my most recent edits:

Sarah took this picture a little tilted. I fixed it.

Got rid of a roof and got rid of Ben's sunburn. Love the colors.

Ben really likes this one. It's some much more interesting now, don't you think?

Christmas with the Flake's

All the sisters (minus Whitney and Sarah) and Dad on Christmas Eve

Ben took this great shot while he went sledding. My two brothers.

Reading Luke 2 on Christmas Eve.

Even though he's not fat anymore Jensen is still my favorite baby.

Ben LOVED the Christmas sing-a-long. (jk Ben)

Went out to Wendy's as a family. It was actually really fun!
