Bill's Family Christmas

On the Monday after Christmas, we loaded up (including the snowmobile) and headed to Bill's parents in SW Iowa for time with his family. Aunt Denise was there and Bill's brother and family came up from Texas for some white Christmas. 
After unpacking (including the snowmobile) we headed to the slopes which means the hill by the pond. WooHoo! Lots of fun! But no pictures, save one. One perfect picture that says it all.
That is Bill, totally wiping out!!! Truthfully, this is the next day, but he also biffed it the day before by trying to run and jump on the sled and instead face-planted right into the hill. I haven't laughed like that in a long time! 

So what's going on here? Grandpa on the saucer sled?
 Kids on the 4-wheeler?
 Backwards on the snowmobile?
 Bye! Don't hurt Grandpa!
 Jabin, that is some serious hat head!
 Us girls prefer bulk food store/Oriental food store shopping, and some quiet crafting. 
Present time here lasts for a long time. I repeat a long time. Get a present. Open it. Give one present to another person. And the wrapping isn't done bulk style. If there's a set of checkers, well, they are individually wrapped. One by one. Okay, maybe not, but we start right off in the morning and mid-morning rolls around with another cup of coffee or Mt. Dew, and a handful of Christmas cookies. The kids won't have it any other way.

What's this? Who are these rascals?

Audrey, again, took these shots and I love them.

  1. Great photos, Mindy! But you did forget to mention how YOU were the first one to tunnel through all of those weeds at the bottom! Lots of good memories...Thanks for sharing!
