Holiday Cheer

We were all eager for Christmas this year, even Leif caught the bug. Phoebe's return home from Senegal was quite exciting and our 86 year old grandma came to spend the holidays with us, as well. The house quickly became full and lively!

Much to our surprise, we were also greeted with a white Christmas! Four inches came down quickly on Christmas Eve creating treacherous conditions, a car in the ditch, quick outfit changes from church clothes to work clothes to run ashes and a shovel down the hill, and missing the church service. So, we made our own music and sang Christmas carols in the evening!

Phoebe's friend, Kelly, joined us and added another willing singer to the group!

The days were filled with delicious meals of roast beast, beautiful and delicious pie, yorkshire pudding, and much more!

Christmas day brought lots of cheer and giving. Phoebe's gifts from Senegal were a huge hit, especially Jim's awesome sun hat!

A pancake breakfast was followed by our traditional hike up to the Paris View. Here's our Abbey Road shot :)

Yay! We had an extra person to take a whole family picture :)

The Krumich Trio
Who can resist a snowball fight when you have perfect packing snow? Dad's an excellent shot; all of those childhood baseball games with the neighborhood kids paid off! But Jim & Willem kept trying.

 Hearts, Othello, Fusball, and Apples to Apples were quite fun! Grandma even joined in on the latter.

We wish you a very merry holiday season filled with joy, laughter, & love. 
Here's to a great 2013!
