Merry "Martin Luther King" Day

Just kidding! We did not intentionally get together as a family and open presents just to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr., but we did get to celebrate a belated Christmas up at Hume Lake with my family. We used the nice long weekend to hang out in the snow, sled, play games, watch movies (including a sing/dance-a-long to Mama Mia) and eat yummy treats...when do those New Year's resolutions start?! :)

Dad decided that (due to the amazing after Christmas sales) we all needed matching jammies for the weekend. I don't think he realized just how much they would get used. There was rarely a moment in those four days that at least one pair of red pants was not on display!

Eli got to see, feel, taste snow for the first time and had mixed emotions. He liked to eat it, but didn't really want to touch it and was very concerned if it got on him or anyone else! Crazy little monkey! We only managed to get him on one sled ride but he liked watching all of us sled...until we spun out or crashed at the end. He was very concerned by this! I tried to smile really big and convince him it was all for fun, but he wasn't buying it. Maybe next year!
