on the road....

we finally got to head out of town and get our christmas vacation underway. i couldn't help but take this picture. after watching two movies the kids finally crashed... but only for 30 min.
soon after we arrived so did the snow!!! the kids were thrilled. i would have a fun pic of caleb in the snow, but just after this shot he got snow in his mittens and flipped out!!! it was cold!
we shared christmas eve with family at gg's house. lots of fun with food, cousins, and presents!
on christmas morning the kids were excited to see all the snow that they would get to play in!
we continued our christmas morning tradition of christmas tree cinnamon rolls.... Yummy!!
we opened gifts from grammie and poppy.... here is one of allie's most prized gifts... oooh, la, la!
then it was out to play in the snow.... it was too dry to build a snowman, but still perfect for snow angels. caleb still tried to throw snowballs much to his frustration!
i LOVE this picture!!! they are getting so big!
on christmas evening we had the opportunity to visit with our friends, shawn and rachel tate. here are all six of our kids... FIVE BOYS... poor allie!
we headed home the next day, braving the icy road conditions. it took us a little longer than normal, but at least the kids were in good humor. at one point, allie said, "mom, watch!" and did this:
she learned to cross her eyes this summer and thought we could all use a laugh after such a stressful drive....she just loves to keep us laughing!
