Snow Day

Sporting his mom's sweet scarf! No! I'm not cold! Nope not me!
When will it be my turn?!
Dalton & Gage sledding

Sunday morning Allen, Gage and I went rabbitt hunting. After no success we headed back to town to try out sledding. The days before it was just too cold and had been really windy. Don't get me wrong Sunday was still REALLY cold but not as much wind. We hooked the sled behind the Ranger and pulled Gage around and around and around. After a while we went over to the McNickle's house and they came with us to play in the snow. Dalton had received a snowboard for Christmas so they played on that too. Gage actually could do a little snowboarding to my surprise. I may be raising an Olympic snowboarder from Kansas...okay maybe not. Anyways had a great day playing in the snow and hope to have more days like that before spring. If it's going to be cold we might as well have snow for the fun right!I don't think the kid would have ever went in if we wouldn't of made him!

Christmas Update

What a wonderful Christmas we had!

In recap:
Christmas Eve around 5:30 p.m. I found out that the Parsons Movie Theatre wasn't having a 7:00 p.m. showing of Alvin & the Chipmunks so we drove in the sleet/ice to Pittsburg to follow through with a promise that we made to Gage that for Christmas Eve we would go to the movies. When we left the movies it had began snowing and we drove home in a blizzard! I wasn't scared since Allen went with me. And those of you who have road with my husband know when Allen is just close your eyes and pray, even when the weather is clear!.We got home around 11:00 p.m. that night and put our cookies out for Santa and headed to bed.

Christmas day this year was a little different than the past. Usually we get up and do our Christmas then go to my G&G Hoobler's but they had went to Arizona to be with my Aunt and her family this year since they were unable to come to Kansas.

Christmas Day Gage woke up and ran not to the Christmas tree to look to see if Santa had came but to the front living room to look out the window to see if it had snowed. He came running to our bedroom about 7:15 a.m. saying "Mama wake up it's winter time"! Once entering our bedroom he ran to the window to open the blinds to prove to us it was a white Christmas.
After looking at the snow we went to the Christmas tree to find that Santa had left him a Wii, Cars Race O' Rama Wii game. In his stocking he had left hot wheels an extra Wii remote and some transformer underwear.

Aunt Kelli braved the 4" of snow and 5-6' tall drifts and drove down to enjoy Christmas morning with us. When she arrived we ate homemade cinnamon rolls and opened presents.

The rest of the day was pretty lazy and relaxing. We were to have Christmas at my father's house but that was postponed until Saturday due to the weather. We played, ate, napped and was merry!

Saturday we went to Papa Steve's and enjoyed the company of famiy. Gage enjoyed playing with all his cousin's and I enjoyed talking to my sister and step-sisters.

Coming Soon...
