"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

-Samwise Gamgee, The Lord of the Rings

Merry Christmas!

We had a great Christmas. Very low key and we got to see everyone important. We have to choose what to do and what we have to miss every year, and we've kind of went on an every other year type of thing, and that works. Running around too much just makes for cranky kids and tired parents!

We haven't had any snow (but its snowing today!) so the kids were able to use their new scooters a few times, and the temps have reached 40 almost every day! Completely unheard of for MN in December. Just yesterday we all went to the store in nothing but hoodie sweatshirts!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, and that the new year brings you blessings!

Just before opening gifts Christmas morning


All ready go to up to Grandma's!
