Christmas 2013

Wow ~ what a busy couple weeks.  Between a complete lack of sleep and the typical holiday craziness I am ready for...and I cannot believe I am actually saying to begin!  We can begin ski season then! Kath and Michaela hold a couple ski passes after the holidays, so they are rarin' to go.  

Christmas was wonderful.  We were blessed to attend Midnight Mass which we typically don't do because of the time.  Everyone was slightly exhausted the following day, but it was a good exhausted.  Shannon awoke to Nickles telling him he had just gotten sick so that was a bit of a bummer, but I think Shannon may have enjoyed staying at home and relaxing with his little buddy for the evening.

We have continued to celebrate the Christmas season with visits with cousins and get-togethers.  It has been relaxing for sure, yet a little crazy!
