Displaying some of our goodies for Christmas with my dad's family - we had everyone over to our house this year

Nikole and Nikki
There's a neat little story behind this. It is a "jewelry tree" that belonged to my grandma. It was ruined in the flood, so she had to throw it out....she was devastated. That night, my uncle went back over to their house and grabbed it out of the dump pile without them knowing. My aunt cleaned it all up and gave it to my grandma for Christmas! Needless to say, she was very surprised and soooo happy!
Sporting our new scarves from our aunt and uncle in Arizona
Modeling my new pajamas, earmuffs, scarf, and mittens
Getting ready to go sledding on Christmas day
Dad had a somewhat difficult time getting on the sled! =)
It was positively freezing and snowing really hard - I was ready to go home!
That night, we decided to go out to eat, so we got all ready, jumped in the car, drove around for an hour and guess what?? There was NOTHING open (well, except for Chinese and a Hardees)! So, we came back and ate leftover soup and pulled pork sandwiches. =D
