Bubbles, Snow & Penguins

Every year the week before Christmas our family heads to Galena, Illinois to stay together as a big family at my Grandparents' home in Eagle Ridge, otherwise known as the Penguin House.  This year was Finley's first year and we were a little nervous about an 8 hour car ride with both kids, but they surprised us and were both amazing.

  The kids had fun splashing in the big bathtub but we were all a little disappointed that there was no snow when we got there - we barely recognized the house with out any snow!  The night before our 'Christmas' Logan went to bed wishing for snow.  We tried to let him down easy that there probably wouldn't be any (only a 20% chance) but he stayed hopeful. 

Lucky for him, the next morning we awoke to open presents with a nice dusting.  Enough to do a little sledding!

Logan had a great time sledding down hill and stomping around watching his tracks behind him.  

All in all, it was a great weekend despite nearly half our party getting the stomach flu (Finley getting it on the drive home!).  We tried to make the best of it and as always enjoyed each other's company doing nothing but visiting, laughing and relaxing together as a family.
