My sister hosted our side of the family at her house on Christmas Eve.
If it wasn't for the fact we'll all drive in any weather, we probably would have had to cancel. Our second blizzard, in as many weeks, was in full force by the time we headed to her place.
12 inches on the ground wasn't enough.....it needed to rain all the day before...freeze...then throw another 12+ on top of it. Throw in hurricane force winds, and we're good to go!!! :-)
We did end up having to call it a night earlier than we would have. In the few hours we were there, their driveway was completely snowed it, and Doug (my brother in law) had to go out and start scooping paths to our vehicles. The interstate on the way home wasn't closed...but probably should have been.
I love this time of year!!!!!!!
Inny getting the meal ready. It tasted great!!!
Grandma keeping a careful eye on the kitchen.
Brandon is always smiles when the cameras are around.
Mom and kids. What a group!!
I'm not sure who invited this guy.
Just kidding. Look....do you see what great pictures he takes, when he lets me!! :-)
The kids got a Wii this year...so Lauren and Brandon had to show me the games they had for it.
Emalee and Sam had a blast with each other. Finally, friends to play with that were their size!
Sam was enjoying her first Christmas. Her people let her chew on all the paper and cardboard she wanted. Puppy heaven.
After dinner, the presents were unwrapped.
The stars of the show this year.....Nerf weapons.
She's a sniper...I love it!!! Shot him right in the rear.
Then she turned her weapon on me.
Wait a second! Why am I the target???
Dad was trying out some trick shots, up the stairs, off the door, into the spare room.....two points!
I was surprised to find I didn't have my camera out much after this was taken. I missed the biggest, badest, and bestest Nerf gun yet.
The N-Strike Vulcan. Fully automatic Nerf dart throwing machine!!!!
Unfortunately, we had to pack up and get home not long after gift opening. The roads and weather were getting worse and worse.
It was a great night!
