Lance received Rock Band with the Beatles from Santa. Everyone really enjoyed it.

Christmas at Nate's

The kids sure enjoyed Christmas. We really wish we had pictures of our family caroleing to families in the area. It has been our tradition since Nate was three, so 31 years.
Shyanne with the cereal we gave her. She thought it was such a fun gift.
Burgandi giving one of her faces.
Nate's whole family, such a cute family, sure love them.
Shyanne with one of the dresses she received.
What is really funny is that Lance was saying about five minutes earlier that he loved the movie The Indian in the Cupboard.

Snow

Brenda read the Farmers Almanac and it said we would have a very mild winter. Okay, it is still fall, but this is not mild. We love it and it is beautiful and we are very grateful for the moisture.
This is the sidewalk in front of the house to show the snow.
We woke up to snow and more snow. It snowed most of the night and then during the day. This is the following day and the icicles from the roof.

Funny Robert. He put the numbers on the cake backwards. Have to love a chocolate cake that is german chocolate on one side and chocolate on the other.
Burgandi was taking off with this one and Vince was trying to guide her over to Jojo.
Lots of helpers with the presents.
Burgandi taking her turn in the box. She kept closing herself in and then peeking out.
Kids and boxes go hand in hand. Shy and Vince loved playing in this box while we were getting dinner finished.
