Christmas gathering the Third

We were all going to gather at my parents for the day on the 26.
Starting the morning with brunch, then games, hockey, supper and gifts.
But the night from the 25 to the 26 it began to snow and blow.
And it snowed and blowed hard!!
When we got up that morning Josh went out to see how the roads looked;
It took him awhile but once he got back we decided that it wouldn't be a good idea to leave now.
So we settled in for a relaxing snow day.
By 4 in the afternoon the weather had cleared up, and all the other family members were making their way to mom and dad.
So we asked to borrow the truck, got it loaded and headed out.
The roads were a mess!! We plowed through many snow drifts, but we made to my parents by 5.
And it was nice to see everyone. 

We set up a hot chocolate bar and got supper ready.

After eating the guys went out for hockey and the kids and the ladies played games.

After everyone made it back inside it was time for gifts!!!!

Janelle and Grandpa.






Admiring what Grandpa got.

Stools that my brother built.

Matching toys.

Sophia got a puppy.

Much to Taylor's delight!!

We all ended up staying for night and brunch the next morning. It was a really fun time even though it wasn't exactly what we had planned.
