Cilantro Lime Chicken with Avocado Salsa

Recently we were in Breckenridge celebrating a late Christmas with my husbands family. My sister-in-law kept repeating all weekend… there are 17 of us… 17!!!

The coolest part of the weekend was that my husbands brother and his family (wife and two boys) were able to fly in from Cuenca, Ecuador where they are doing mission work! This was the first time in a year and half that they have been in the US. Kinda crazy right!?
