Well I'm back from my little holiday blogging hiatus! It was a crazy week that consisted of:
- lots of great presents
- a trip to the ER
- lots and LOTS of snow and ice
- a four wheeler
- and lots of TV watching.
It all started on Wednesday when Luke and I hit the road and headed to my hometown to spend a couple of days with my family. We had so much fun just sitting around, eating tons of food and watching lots of TV. Not exactly productive but it was nice and relaxing.
Christmas eve morning it started snowing and didn't stop until the next day. It was crazy and unexpected for Oklahoma. I'm usually a big fan of snow but not when it happens on Christmas and completely messes up everybody's travel plans. No fun.
And I lost count of how many times I fell on the ice. I'm normally a clumsy person, add ice and it all goes downhill.
Christmas morning we woke up and opened all of our presents which was oh so much fun. Then shortly after lunch Maxton (my nephew) was running and fell and split his chin open.
He had to go to the ER and get 5 stitches
Here he is telling me all about the fall:
Later in the afternoon on Christmas day Luke and I realized that there was no way we were going to make it to his parent's house, an hour away, in our little car, so after some arranging we found someone headed that way in a truck and hitched a ride with them.
It was a crazy Christmas day!
We spent the next couple of days hanging with Luke's family
Doing a little of this:
and some domino playing:
and hanging out with these guys:
After a couple of fun days we headed back to my parents house to spend some more time with my family. I of course took about 200 pictures of this little guyI always forget to take pictures of the other people, he's just so cute!
We were only supposed to be out of town for a couple of days, but due to the icy roads and the cancellation of church we ended up being gone a week, which was just fine with us. We enjoyed every moment of being with our families!
By the way, Luke and I got a new camera for Christmas and pretty much the only thing I did all break was take pictures. Which would explain why Luke started to do this when I pulled out the camera:It was a wonderful 2009 Christmas!
