Love the Holidays

We got to go to Montana for Christmas. It was lots of fun to see my family and some ol' friends. What did we do?

(We went for a lot of walks/hikes. It's so pretty around my parent's house how could we resist?)

(Jacob didn't see too much of the scenary. He LOVES the backpack carrier his aunt and uncle got him...it's so cozy and comfy he falls right to sleep in it).

(We also got in a fair amount of sledding? You are never too old for a good run on the hill right?)

(We played game after game--mainly cards--which of course went hand-in-hand with eating treat after treat.)

(Jake got spoiled by grandma and grandpa)

(We opened presents...well actually our adorable nephews helped open our presents for us. In fact my 3 year old nephew's favorite toy was Erich's goose call which Aiden was sure was a TUBA not a goose call!)

(Erich obliged to celebrating Christmas Reid Style which included lining up in the hallway Christmas morning for pictures and staying up on Christmas Eve until a crazy hour--my parents said it was more like fourish when they got to bed. Does anyone else's parents stay up until 2 in the morning on a regular basis? I was the one telling them it was bedtime!)

(We introduced our adorable son to lots of friends and family)

(and just reflected on how lucky we are to belong to such a fun and great family! It would have been better if everyone was there but it we had a great time nonetheless)

I am so glad you had a good Christmas and were able to be with family. That is my favorite kind of hanging out...treats, games, sledding, and hikes. The pictures are all so cute, it's been a long time since I have seen your extended family.

It was great to see you! Don't you just love family?! I'm having a really hard time getting back on schedule (ya know, 10 days of 2am nights and sleeping til 11 makes it hard to get up at 7 for work!) Glad you had a great trip!
