Today, we attended our second family party of the season. The first family party happened before Christmas and I have no pictures because I had my hands too full to photograph much (it does happen sometimes.) We have 2 more to attend before the Christmas holiday's are over. I sometimes find myself craving a little less travel during the holiday's. However, I really try hard not to miss them because it is one of the few times I get to see my cousins, uncles, aunts and grandparents. For this party we spent some time sledding. It was an extremely cold day to go sledding (21 degrees and an icy cold wind), but the kids had fun anyway. Then we had lunch and visiting at the church. Be warned--there are lots of images.
Had to include this one just for the expression.
If you have ever been the person in front during a toboggan ride--you can sympathize with my daughter in this picture.
My sister ate a little snow. This wasn't her worst wreck of the day from the stories I heard afterward.
My husband keeping the baby warm. The baby and I only lasted about 20 minutes before we warmed up in the car.
After sledding and lunch, we played some games. . . .
ate some prizes. . . .
visited with cousins. . . .
and opened gifts.
My Grandma amazes me. She still MAKES gifts for ALL of her great-grandchildren. She has so many now, I don't know how she does it. She has made some wonderful things over the years--some that have been well used and some that I treasure.
This picture comes to you courtesy of my 5 year old. Did you notice I am in 2 of the last 3 posts. It is a record.
It was a wonderful party. Thanks Grandma!!
