we had a gingerbread making party and contest

we beheld this sunset on our way down to temple square.
while a lot of the photos in this post have been edited, the one below is actually how it really looked.

we braved the crowds at temple square to see the lights. a christmastime tradition never to be missed.

we even made a christmas-tree-pyramid and sang some carols,
just like we did a few years ago on 5th avenue in new york city.

days that are quite nearly christmas for four days before the real deal? i’ll take it.


  1. Charity, I read your blog all the time - you are awesome!! I have a quick question for you. We are going to be taking our 16 year old granddaughter with us to San Francisco in February. What are the top 3 things you would suggest that we see or do while there with our granddaughter?

    Thanks!! Kim Radford
