It was for sure a white Christmas! So white Colby decided it was a good idea to get a snowblower for Christmas. Christmas Eve Colby had to work at Sears until 6 p.m., his family got together at noon that day to exchange presents and have lunch.
I had worked a grave the night before, so I wasn't planning on going until his sister told me they had room in their car and could ride up with them to Soda. I was able to go and watch the nieces and nephew (Gage was to small to open his own) open their presents. I took a lot of pictures for Uncle Colby.
When Colby got off work we headed to Rigby, we actually went to my Grandparents first had some of their left overs from dinner and opened a few presents then headed to my Mom's house.
Before heading North we decided to open the gifts we had got each other. I got a sleeping bag, an office computer game, gloves and the new LDS film Errand of Angels. Colby got two new hats, a pair of Crocs, giftcards to Wendy's and Artic Circle, a summer sausage and Birch Beer from Santa.
Christmas day was a snowy mess. We got up and there was about 6 inches of new snow. We opened presents and stockings before breakfast. While breakfast was cooking we hooked up the Wii, Colby shoveled Mom's sidewalk and part of the driveway. (What a good son-in-law he is)
We headed home in the late afternoon. We spun a few cookies right before the rest area near Shelly, the cookies were un-planned. Colby was driving (thank heavens) and was able to keep us on the road. We hit the back bumper on the guardrail... and we drove away with only a scratch on the back bumper. My tummy was doing cookies the whole rest of the way home though.
Upon returning home we found 12 inches of snow in our driveway... YES a foot of snow in about 24 hours. Colby was sure glad he had the snow blower. After the snow removal and un-loading the car we went to his sisters house and had waffles for dinner, Colby got a waffle iron for Christmas so he wanted to try it out. After dinner we played Mexican Train until about 12:30 a.m. and it was for sure bed time when we got home.
Since the snow was so abundant we didn't make it to Soda Springs to see Colby's Mom and Dad on Christmas, they came down Saturday evening before we all went to Lava Hot Springs and we had a late Christmas. Better late than never.
That's what we did for Christmas...
