Holidays 2008

We had a very busy Holiday Season. We kicked it off with a visit from my mom and dad for THanksgiving. This was fun and festive time since we had our first Thankgiving at our house. Stef prepared the meal and we served it at our house. It was low key, but enjoyable. It was great having my mom and dad here for the holiday. The kids especially enjoyed builing GingerBread Houses with Grandma.

We made a last minute decision to go to Sidney for Christmas so this changed all our vacation plans. We ended up doing a Christmas at our home with Chad, Stef and the girls on December 18th, then left for Sidney on the 19th. We had decent roads for the majority of the trip there and pulled into Sidney on Saturday night, just in time for a big family gathering at Grandma and Grandpa Frison's. It was a fun filled night of food and visiting. Sidney was ridiculously cold and miserable outside. It was below zero with a crazy windchill that made it impossible to go outside and enjoy the snow, so the kids stayed in for the entire trip. We spent Christmas eve at Justins parents and Christmas day at G and G Frisons. There were many games of Cribbage and dominoes as well as lots of great food as usual. We headed home on Friday afternoon and stayed in Bozeman for the night at the C'mon Inn. The kids swam and had a lot of fun. The next day was terrible driving home, but Justin came through and got us home safe and sound! Thanks
We came home and spent the day playing in the snow, riding snowmobiles and sleds and just enjoying the day for fun. Dan and Tina with their kids joined us, it was a great time.

New Years eve was low key with dinner with Bobbi, Chris, Tiffany and Brett and Michaels and dice at our house afterwards. It was a last minute plan. New Years Day the boys went snowmobiling and the girls hung out at our house for a day of movies, relaxation and the kids playing. It was a great way to start the new year.

Saturday the boys went sledding again and took Chris on his maiden voyage with his new snowmobile. Tiffany, Bobbi and I went to a double header at the theater and saw 7 Pounds and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Both were good movies and cryers. Thanks girls for a fun day out...

Well that is the holiday season for us in a nutshell. Thanks to all of you who shared in our 2008 and made many wonderful memories and shared in many fun events. I am going to work on my year in review scrapbook page/book, will share at later date. Happy New Year to all. Stay in touch.
