White Christmas

We hosted Dad’s side of the family on Christmas day, and sledding through the grass snow was a huge hit with the little ones. Dad fetched the 4-wheeler, and we bundled up the kids for our rendition of a Christmas sleigh ride.

“Hold on Mikala,” said James.

“Oops, I think our rope is twisted,” said Dad.

“Weeeeeee!!!!!!”

“Stay on the snow, Uncle Jim!”

“Whew, my buns are wet.”

Back inside (and dry), everyone gathered in the living room for our grab bag exchange.

Jim kept waiting and waiting for someone to pick the gift he brought — the “prized” DVD of Showgirls that DIY added to the mix last year. (Uncle Roy was the poor fellow to draw it.)

After gifts were opened, the aunties put out Grandma’s tea cup collection, which required us to play nicely and take turns in picking what we wanted.

It took us a good half an hour to get through the collection of nearly 100.
