From the depths of the frozen north I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! We snuggled up warm and cozy in front of our fire and had lots of quilts to go around as well. It snowed heavily two days before Christmas (as you can see two posts down) and on Christmas Eve it started in again. It didn't let up until late Christmas day! Our neighborhood streets are white and snow packed, the yards are all a foot deep in snow, and the trees and bushes look like they are bending under the weight of it all. I kept looking out of my kitchen window yesterday wishing I had a horse and sleigh with jingle bells and the whole works! Wouldn't that be fun?
Santa came to our house again this year...I suppose we were all good enough! He left something the kids have been yearning for these last few years...a Wii!!! Richard saw it and said, "See Rachel! I told you it was possible!" They have had lots of fun learning to use it and playing all of the games. Our funniest moment was when Dee was "running" to find a rabbit in "Rayman". It was hilarious but he would never forgive me if I posted the video!
The kids took Sam on a Christmas morning walk through the snow and were grateful for the neighbors who actually had shoveled their walks! I include video proof to Jolynn that you can actually leave the house and have a good time in the white stuff! I have even been to the Mall in Orem today and only slid around in the car a little bitsty bit!
We have enjoyed having my Mom here with us! She is so full of fun and always up for a game or a movie...whatever the kids want to do. She made some English Toffee, Cereal Candy, & Cougar Crunch for us as well as the most delicious pies! Oh, and she also whipped our behinds at Wii Bowling!!! Gosh Grandma! Stop showing off!!
Here are a few photos of the fun of the day. Enjoy the rest of your holiday break and stay warm everyone!

Yet another Grandchild has passed her by in height!
so we could all be kids again!
Richard went out to help Dee knock snow out of the DISH so we could get TV again!
