In the afternoon, we made christmas trees out of ice cream cones and frosting and decorated them with m&ms. It was fun. We also spent some time with our friends and went sledding. It was a blast and it wasn't too cold outside so it was enjoyable. I hadn't been sledding in a looooong time so it was fun to go again. WE took Sadie down a couple times and I think she liked it. She especially liked laying down in the sled while daddy pulled her around in the snow. It was cute. BUt after about 20 minutes, she got cold. It is never fun when you are cold so she was pretty sad. So we took her home and gave her a warm bath which made her really happy. Rob and I would like to go sledding again when it is not as crowded and when Sadie has some warmer clothes. We'll see when that happens. Anyway, it was an enjoyable Christmas. We ended the night by reading Luke 2 and talking about the birth of Christ. I love the story of our Savior's birth and I'm glad that we could celebrate it as a family.
Now on to some fun pictures!
Here is Sadie trying to get us out of bed to open presents.
Here we all are sleding. Notice the matching hats that Rob's aunt made for us. Cute!
Here they are about to go down the hill for the first time!
Sadie was more interested in standing on top of her presents than opening them. But once they were opened, she loved it!
Rob's favorite gifts!
Here is Sadie watching her new toy for the first time. Well, maybe not the very first time, but she loves it!
