Merry Christmas Day 2008!










Instead of over the river and through the woods like the song, its more like in-between the lakes and through the trees to Grandmother's house we go... It could not have been a more picture perfect day. It warmed to 16 degrees and I was hot in the car with all my layers on. We feasted on duck and wild rice and laughed at Grandpa's joke that the duck was tame, but the rice was wild : ) Nolan bundled up and went with Grandpa and daddy for a ride on the snowmobile. While Colton stayed inside and made up games with the few toys he had brought along. And grandma and I curled up on the couch to watch and enjoy "Mamma Mia." It was serene and peaceful. We missed all of our family that wasn't able to be with us for the holiday but we shared remembrances of all of them. We left with the car a little lighter leaving Colton behind to take care of grandpa and grandma for a couple of days, but with our stomachs and hearts a lot fuller! I hope everyone had a happy and healthy holiday! Merry Christmas everyone!

  5. I can't tell you how much I loved those pictures...the 2nd and the 5th were my favorites. I looked throught them twice getting butterflies both times :)
    I love hearing about your day...I'm sitting here still in bed watching HGTV, they are doing a story on a house in Minn. So much snow, I thought of you and ran to your blog. You didn't let me down! Love today~

  7. With the help of ALL of you : ) I have come to know that perfection is found in simplicity : )

    Sara, I thought of you every time I snapped away... I can only imagine what YOUR designer eye would have captured with that spiffy new camera!

    Bonnie, I can't wait to hear about the whole Christmas experience with 3 plus a new baby... I just know there is a laugh in there that only you will be able to deliver.

    Robin, I can only imagine the great joy that would surge through you to experience a walk through the snow covered trees! Rick has spent the entire morning trying to get my new printer to work. I'll mail you your very own copy of your faves if we get it to work... I mean WHEN it works : )

    Julie, I am so glad Mackenzie liked her game! I have pictures to share of the boys with their cards, they were VERY excited as well and have big plans for how they will spend it/save it. (Nolan will spend : ), Colton will save : ) ) The only thing missing was all of you yesterday!

  9. I did indeed. And after 3 hours of tech support and every intervention imaginable by my very tech capable husband and his new best friend Austen, sadly it went back to the store : ( We'll see if Rick is patient enough to give it another go : )

    Any photos to share? I'm so excited to SEE what you can do! Or will it be a BIG reveal for Monday... you're NOT going to make me wait till Monday are ya?

  10. Vicky...I'm now praying for Rick and the new printer to get along :)
    I can't wait to get actual copies of my favs. You can bet they'll go on the fridge where I can see them constantly(as I'm always in there) and dream of snow....love to you~

  11. Robin,

    I lived in fear for awhile that dear printer would go the way of damn dishwasher : )

    But thanks to darling hubby, we're in business! However, I still have to make a run to the mall for photo paper... to be continued!
