We followed up with a trip to the movies. The kids went to see Bolt while Dave and I saw Four Christmases. It was hilarious! When we returned home I tackled dinner and the rest of the crew hit the hot tub. Followed up with some football. It was a low-key, fun-filled day. I love my family.
Dave and I did a bit of shopping on Black Friday, mostly to buy a new camera so I don't miss out on documenting our exciting Christmas season. Merry early Christmas to me. Dave and I rented Run Fat Boy Run and laughed A LOT.
Snow fell and fell so Ben went sledding with Evan. Rachel built her first snowman with Dave and went sledding for the first time. This is the part of winter we all love. It's still novel and fun and the hot chocolate really makes it all warm and wonderful when you come inside.
We visited the pool and made homemade chocolate chip cookies. We bought and decorated our tree. Grandma and Papa will arrive for a visit tonight.
