When we left our house it was sunny and warm! I wore flip flops in the car....
but 2 days of driving later and this is what we see!
lots of bathroom breaks on this trip....
lugging our luggage thru the hotel....
finally to the great white North!
To Grandma's house we go!
Oh so much snow...
beautiful, fluffy snow.
Dad and his Elmer Fudd hat :)
The kids love to sled (or slide as they say..)
Putting on the layers.
SOOOO cozy inside! Except for the few hours on Christmas morning when we didn't have power! In fact, we had to stay in town the whole time and didn't get to stay at the farm because the farm lost power.
Poor Dave got a lump of coal in his stocking from his in-laws...wow, and you used to be known as the favorite son-in-law!
The stockings were hung...
We made snow cream! Just snow, milk, sugar, and vanilla. It was delicious!

Sleeping on the floor.
Our little glimpse of Saint John (New Brunswick) as we traveled through to get to my parents' house in Moncton. The Hilton on the left is where Dave and I stayed the night of our wedding, and then on the right...uptown where I went to high school.
Mom gets a button wreath from her grand daughter.
Our little accident on the highway in Maine...we swerved on the ice, crossed the road and into a snowbank. God protected us and no one was coming either way, or it could have been serious.
My mom and I had a nice walk around the lake. The houses were especially pretty with the icicles hanging from roofs.
The icicles (!)
Mom and Dad, you made our Christmas so nice and special! We love you and miss you already.
One last picture of Dave being the sweet son-in-law that he is, and shoveling the sidewalk :)
