Tears when it was time to leave
Home on Christmas morning. Abby reading the Christmas story.

Carl made us bacon, eggs, toast, sausage, and hashbrowns for breakfast Christmas morning :)
We spent Christmas afternoon with the Eisenharts. Not sure what was about to happen here, but the moment was going to be preserved with pixels for sure!
More tears when Abby opened her violin! Then lots of smiles :) Super-excited about the potential here!

The kids are enjoying their time off school and Carl & Caleb have been trying out their snowboards at PerfectNorth. We made lots of wonderful memories this year and it was so nice to spend time with family. And our dreams of a white Christmas came true!
