Family Christmas

We braved the snow and traffic and went down to see my family for a few days this past weekend. We had our Christmas party and opened lots of presents. Grandma and Grandpa spoiled all of us AGAIN!

The Furniss Family

Just so you know, my camera hates me lately. So ignore all the blurriness, red eyes and general lack-of-light in most of these pics.

Ellie and Madi in their new pj's

My mom's gift to Matt. It says, "My finger may be tiny but I can still wrap my daddy around it." Ain't THAT the truth!!

Me and Shelby. (Notice the football game on in the background? Thus, we did not get a lot of participation out of the menfolk.)

Ellie wearing the hat that Grandma and Grandpa gave her. The smile says it all!

Christopher, looking cool as always.

Shannon in her pj's AND the hoodie she got.

I was able to see some of my good friends on the way down.
Lunch at Macaroni Grill. Yumm, yummm, yummmmmmmmm.

Mishy, Dawn, Carey, Me and Ro. (**EDITED TO ADD: Thanks Michelle for fixing this! It looks TONS better now!!)(Oh, and BTW we were all supposed to pull a funny face for this photo... obviously Carey is the only cool one here. The rest of us are dorks!)

Dawn, Carey and I got together on Sunday night to sing some tunes. We used to sing together every week... I miss that so much!!!!

We drove home Monday in the worst snow storm!! But thanks to Matt (and 4-wheel drive) we made it home safe and sound. The girls jumped right into their snow suits and Matt pulled them on the tubes with the raptor. They had so much fun!! After a dose of hot chocolate, Shannon and Ellie went out again and built this....

Reminds me of a Calvin and Hobbes snowman.

Oh my gosh! I loved looking at this photo of your family! I'm going to call my mom and sisters so they can take a peek too. So fun!
