We headed up to North Dakota to spend Thanksgiving with Mama's parents.  This is what part of the trip looked like.  David did not remember seeing this much snow before, so he kept asking me if we were in a blizzard.  I had a hard time convincing him that we weren't! While it was pretty cold (the high during the week was around 20 and the low was -7), it did not feel as uncomfortable up there as it does here, because of the difference in humidity.

It snowed most of the time we were there, so Grandpa was busy shoveling the deck and sidewalk. 

Chrissy enjoyed having a reason to wear her matching coat and beret and drink many cups of coffee and cider (and apparently she likes making strange faces).

The view from my Grandparents' house.  My uncle's family lives on the same farm, so that's their house.

     It was a very fun trip!  On the way home, our car broke down while we stopped for lunch at our previous pastor's house.  We were so blessed that it happened there, and not in the middle of nowhere, and that a mechanic was able to fix it in just a few hours!  We have so, so much to be thankful for.  This trip gave us more.

And we went hay bale jumping, in the snow.  I highly recommend it!

  1. I'm glad you had a good trip! Your mom and grandma look alike -- which means you also look like your grandma... that's special. :)
