Christmas Fun!

We spent Christmas this year at my dad's cabin in the North! We had so much fun playing outside, and just being together. It felt like a winter wonderland. I don't know about any of you, but it seems like the older I get, the more precious my time with my family becomes.
This is where we spent our week......

Story time with Grandpa....

A present from my sister and her family. I think the look says it all!

Snowmobiling! We snowmobiled on Christmas Day. The trails were great, and we had them all to ourselves...
I LOVE this picture. I especially love the little footprints....
Riley will fish anytime, anywhere.....
We went skiing the day after Christmas, and again had great snow, and the place seemed empty.
Playing with our new Christmas present, the Wii!

Oh, Becki!!! Wow! Looks like you had an amazing time as a family. So glad! :-) Yes, I'm finding the (older) I get (does it count if I put in in parenthesis???) the more I enjoy the experiences rather than the things. Family time is such blessing! Love the footprint pic of Addison...and the one of her sitting with your dad in her little pony tail! Super sweet! GREAT to have you back! Love & hugs, A

Looks like a storybook Christmas - the cabin, the skiing, the sleding and even the ice fishing (even the Wii playing!). How wonderful it must have been. You are so blessed!

Happy New Year!!
