Christmas Joys with the Kirschmans!

We didn't know how the weather was going to be on Christmas and if we would make it to Logan. We made it! We went straight to the Ozmun's for food and hanging out. When the time came to leave..the adventures begun! It snowed so much! Our car wouldn't make it up the hill. Well, lucky for us, Adam and Hillary's monster Jeep pulled us up and we all eventually got home safe and sound.

The guys shoveled snow..
Then they were able to have some fun! I guess the boys were excited with what they could do with all that snow. So, they bundled up and decided to pull each other behind the Jeep on a little sled. Crazy! At first it was just Ad and Russ, but Tom and the Bub (my dad) soon joined in.

While the boys were out in the cold, us gals stayed in where it was nice and cozy.

The Bub wasn't too happy after hitting a big puddle of ice water.. so he joined us inside.

The boys did end up coming in from the cold

We didn't open presents until like 10:00 or maybe even later. We had fun! I love my fam.

We spent a few days in Logan, and had lots of fun! The day after, most of us went to eat at Frederico's Pizza and to see a movie.

Russ and I were also able to spend some time with our friends, Dave and Christina Noack a couple of days after Christmas. They were up from Kentucky. Happy Holidays!

Christmas Joys!

I love spending Christmas with family! This year was Russell's and my first Christmas being married. We split the holiday this year with both our families.
We spent Christmas Eve with the Petty Peeps! We had a Cafe Rio dinner, snacks, of course, and tried out the new game Russ and I got from Scott and Diane, called "Loot". They gave it to us early, so we tried it out. It was a pirate card game , where you try to win as much gold as you can. It was fun.
Mama and Papa Petty had a full house that night. We were on couches, and air mattress, and Chris, Katrina, and the kids were downstairs at their place.

Fabulous Christmas morning photos! (Em, Russ, Stu-Russ' bro)

Christmas morning the whole family was together, besides Robert (Russ' bro who is on a mission in the Philippines). We went downstairs and watched the kids open their presents. They were cute!

Then we went upstairs to open our gifts.

Russ had the idea to get some of Papa Petty's old wrestling pictures (found in an old year book) and frame them. Russ had him sign the frame before Christmas. It was neat.
It was fun spending Christmas this year with my new family!
