What a lovely Christmas we had this year. It was marked with many good memories. We were so blessed to have my Dad & Janet come visit us and stay for a few days.
Our extended family showered us with gifts and our tree was quite packed when we got ready to open gifts on Christmas Day. We all felt very loved and made sure to notice who each gift was from and wish they were there with us.
We had a great time making tamales together for Christmas dinner. And the guys really liked roasting the peppers over the gas stove. I think that was a highlight for sure! And how can we forget the amazing chocolate torte! Yum.
We concluded their visit with some ice skating - something we can't do with out help. Thanks to Dad & Janet for contributing by ice skating with Anna & Claire and also sitting with whoever needed to rest. It was so much fun!
Here are a couple pics:
I almost forgot to mention the 8 inches of new snow that fell during their visit! We even went sledding. I know the girls loved having Grandpa run down the street pulling their sled! I'm thankful he didn't pass out afterwards.
