Christmas is coming and kids are excited! They both rushed this morning to wrap their presents for their mama while she was in the shower. Thanks to the scissors, too much wrapping paper, scotch tape, and bows coupled with Dallin and Lucy's sweet skills resulted in wrapping jobs at least as good as I can do. We went to Red Lodge MT to cut a tree a few weeks ago and ended up driving through some very Christmas-like precipitation. Highlights included a very nordic diaper change for Dallin on the open tailgate of the pickup, a beautiful tree right off the road and delicious hot chocolate at a little cafe. Lots of fun was had by all and afterward we enjoyed a band concert at our nephew's middle school. We'll be spending the big day in Buffalo with Susan's sister, her family and Grandpa G. It promises to be lots of fun. There's been lots of snow and sub-zero weather to get us in the mood.
