Christmas Chaos - I love it!

Hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday!  Over the last few days I've participated in and witnessed everything from Christmas Eve beer pong to Christmas Day pin the hat on the turkey!  Wffhhheeeew, what a whirlwind and I wouldn't have traded it for anything in the world!

Kind of long video but just a small sample of one of the finer chaotic moments!  Half of the fam wasn't even there!

Grandma Dee helping the kids play pin the hat on the turkey.  Isn't this a Thanksgiving game?  Whatever, tis the season!

Snow'd in!


I'm not sure WHAT Mother Nature's problem is but she needs to get over it!

Thank goodness my car is in the garage!  Right?...Wait, where's my garage??!!


The hills are alive with the sound of let's freeze our asses off!
AC, I just HAD to take this pic of your drive!  I'm positive it no longer looks like this due to the fact we got 5-6 more inches last night not to mention the blizzard conditions of today!

Snow is crap.

It used to be so pretty...until cold and snow and winter.

We knew it would eventually happen and it did. Winter has officially cracked the whip on us. I loved winter as a child. Going sledding, toboggining, ice skating, snow days! But now, I'd like to say I'm a middle of the road kind of gal when it comes to winter/snow/ice/slush/salt etc... BUT I'm not. I try my darndest to enjoy it because sometimes it is pretty and whatnot but it's gross and cold and that's it. I have compiled a list of 5 "LOVES" and 5 "HATES" about the wintery weather/season.
LOVES
1. Snow men - they really are cool at any age.
2. The ability to buy sweaters and let your gut out for 3 to 4 months!
3. Christmas cards with pictures on them - or just Christmas cards in general.
4. A legit excuse to stay in.
5. Bailey's & coffee.
HATES
1. Salt trucks. Everything about em' - hate em'
2. People who like to show off their 4 wheel drive - Hello, you're scaring the crap out of everyone else! Plus you still look like a dumb ass.
3. Broken wipers.
4. Gross slushy crap and road salt all over your nice dress clothes.
5. The inability to properly enjoy a slurpee (or any delightful frozen drink for that matter).
