HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

We awoke New Years Eve to a storm, but were determined not to miss our time with Karen and family. We got everyone out of bed and fed and hit the road. It wasn't too bad at first and going thirty kms below the speed linit ensured that we stayed on the road...
As we kept going it got a bit worse, and what is normally a one hour drive door to door ended up being just under two hours. Not too bad all things considered...
the hilarity started the moment we arrived and didn't stop until we left the next night...Mr Bean marathons, snowboarding, jewellery making, chocolate eating, MASH reruns, a walk in the dark which ended up as a huge snowball fight with kids trouncing parents, fabulous food, tired parents who wonder if we are getting old, hotwings at midnight making us wonder who would be up in the wee morning hours, our traditional hike regardless of season New Year's day in the woods, on and on it went...we made our way home again after supper on New Years day and everyone was snoring within minutes of getting on the road. A fabulous time was had by all, a wonderful way to start the year! Hoping it is a sign of what the year holds!!!
Joseph, Daniel and Adam checking out their crackers...much better treats than when we were kids! The hats of course remain the same...
