So, as we continue on our trip, the weather gets pretty bad and we are basically making the tracks on the road. Again, thank GOD for 4 wheel drive trucks!
I'm pretty sure our kids should be thankful for this trip. Once we arrived to our destination..on a normal day would have took 5 hours, we got to our cabin in the woods. We actually had "Dean" drive a John Deere tractor to plow our way. Yes, we flagged him down on the main road. Thank GOD we found him driving down the road. But, oh isn't the cabin so cozy?
It was so cozy that my DH wants his ashes to float down the Little Colorado River if something happens to him while we crack open an ice-cold Coors Light. So, on we went to Santa's Workshop, where we built toys, ate cookies, had hot chocolate, and got to meet Santa.
Dinner at the lodge.
Then at Santa's Workshop.
The next few days we really spent time together as a family. We had no cares in the world except being together. And, it was good...really, really good. Thank GOD for family. Through good times and bad, we will always have each other!
Thank you DH for such a memorable trip together. Here's to 10 years in 2010!
And, here's a belated Merry Christmas to ya'll and to all a good night! Yes, this was my Christmas card that I sent out a few days before Christmas. Turned out pretty cute? Didn't it?
