Christmas Day Fun

Look out! Hit the deck! In-coming snowball. ... *makes a snowball and throws it back* Yes! Victory ... no, wait, don't throw one at me ... rrrreeeeeetrrrrreeeeeeeat! .... AHHHHHH!!!! *Thud, pushed into a snow pile*
Awkward as it sounds that's what my Christmas morning sounded like ... or close any way. While outside I discovered the snow was sticky *evil laugh* so I hurled one at Ma. This snowballed (Ha! pun totally intended!) and soon Mom, Dad, Ethan, Leah and myself were taking turns throwing snowballs at each other. Some of us *ahem, dad* used snow shovels to throw snow instead of making snowballs ... and some of us *ahem, dad, Leah and ... ahhh ... me* just gave up and shoved people into snow piles. :)
Leah and I also got in on the snow blowing as well. Dad showed Leah and Ethan showed me ... okay, so yes, I'm 22 and my 14 year old brother was showing me how to use the blower. But hey *shrugs* now I know.
Snowball fights continued here and there and snow angels were made as well. Nearly dripping wet from snowballs and from the trees dripping on us we headed in for a meal of ham, salad and such. It was Dee-Lish! Let me tell ya peeps!
I had a wonderful day and I hope you all did as well!! Here are some pictures from the morning and sort of afternoon-ish time. There are a lot of pictures, so I won't mind if you don't want to look at them all. To see Leah's pictures, and some short videos, click here.

Mom, Me and Ethan, shortly into the morning. Ethan looks like he's trying to WD-40 my face.
Oh, yes, much better. Not so much WD-40-ing in this picture. :)
Ethan eating icicles. Mom, in the background, is trying to show me that they were in fact clean to eat, I did not believe her ... obviously, then, Leah took this picture.
I assure you, my bangs were, in fact, curled when I exited the house that morning, and my hair was also dry ... it is neither of those things in this picture, as you can unfortunately see. You can also see the water on my face, the trees were dripping ... odd.
Me and Leah, starting to get wet from melting snow from snowballs and such.
Dad, the expert snow blower man.
Dad showing Leah how to run the snow blower.
"Look at me, I have no idea what I'm doing, but take my picture anyway, cuz I'm cute!" Okay, so Leah actually did a good job ... she just looks like she doesn't know what she's doing in this picture. :)
Concentrate ... concentrate .... concentrate ... Me trying to blow the snow.
My pretty Mama with snow in her hair! Luv ya Mom!
Snow angel gone wrong ... *giggles* Leah was trying to "throw" herself back in the snow far enough to make a decent snow angel, but all she accomplished was getting herself stuck in the snow. :) It was funny.
Me and Leah ... as you can see from this picture, my hair had some sort of order to it now. :)
Me, Mom and Leah ... the ladies of the house.
For any of you how know my father this picture makes me look tall. :) But truth be told I (at 5 foot 7 inches) am not even close to being as tall as my dad (at 6 foot 3 inches) I told him to "shrink" and he "squatted" next to me. :)
Me, Dad and Leah!
My WAY Cee-ute parents! I love you guys!!!
Merry Christmas from my family to you!

Looks like you had a lot of fun...I love snowballing...hehe :P Oh, to tell you the truth... *I* have never done the snowblower and we have a family with only three girls who NEED to do the work 'cause there's no boys to help...I usually shovel. :D I guess I should learn how to use the snowblower!! :D
Merry Christmas a few days late! :)
