FC: Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow | Snow much fun!
1: Our trip began Christmas day...well was supposed to begin that day however a Midwest blizzard slowed us down a day. We arrived to see the country side covered with a blanket of snow. Great for sledding; not great for driving. A mile from Grandma's house we got stuck in the snow. Helen passed us and charged on through the mighty snow drifts and made it to the homestead. But not before Tim dug us out and bolted us up Grandma's hill to a warm house with warm greetings. Let the fun begin!

31: I don't know who had more fun the dogs, kids or parents. Lots of memories were made with out a single trip to the ER and there was no damage made to the house! Well except the lamp Jessica broke in the loft, oh and that other thing we wont mention. The kids made a new friend in Bailey the black lab from on top of the road where they went drift jumping. Many games were played to include domino train, Quiddler, and CLR. Not a single tv or computer was turned on. Grandma begrudgingly accepted a new stove and oven thanks to Chuckie. With good eats and good company a great time was had by all. Thank you Grandma for hosting all of us!
