Christmas in Indiana

After visiting my brother and his family in Chicago, we drove the short distance to Joel's family in Indiana.  We were pleased to see that they had snow too--so the kids got lots of good playtime outside!!


We had our traditional fondue supper before opening gifts that night.

The next day, we split up into guys and girls--the girls went shopping and out for lunch while the guys watched the kids--and then that evening, the guys went out.  That's always a lot of fun!  (And you can't be after-Christmas Target sales!)

Saturday we took the kids to a bounce and wore them out completely!  Although, we came home and they did go sledding again!

We left Sunday morning at 3:30 and were home by 3 in the afternoon!  It was a great trip!  Joel and I commented that it couldn't have gone better (well, except that Brahm was a bit fussy and clingy!)  But Oliver and Lily did fantastic, Brahm slept much better than our trips this summer, and in his defense, he IS getting 3 teeth in!!!  :-)

Is that a remote controlled helicopter that Oliver got? Marc has one...perhaps Joel, Oliver, Marc, & Luke could go and fly them together sometime :)
