We left to drive to Indiana the day after Christmas. The snow started falling when we reached the Indiana and all we saw were cars spinning and in the ditch. We drove as far as Amy's house in Indianapolis to spend the night. The kids enjoyed fun in the snow as soon as we got there. They loved making snow angels and Hudson, Amy's dog joined in the fun.
We got to mom's and found presents under the tree. The kids were so excited to open them.
Playing hockey from Grandma.
Grammy arrived and Abby quickly recruited her to paint her nails.
Grandma and Amy reading books. Fun for both.
Outside in the snow it was time for snow angels, the sled pulled behind the 4-wheeler, eating snow and throwing snowballs. The kids LOVED the snow.
Grammy and Carter played cards.
Abby helped Aunt Amy with the oreo balls.
Each night Carter would read a chapter from his story. He was so serious and loved doing it.
Abby got a Doc McStuffins doctor's kit and got busy taking care of Grammy and Aunt Amy.
Abby making crafts with Grandma.
We met my friend Kelly from college at Das Essenhaus for lunch. Somehow I only got a picture of Chip and Carter together and not the girls. These boys are the best of friends.
We went to visit the Stine's while we were home. Charlotte passed away about a week before Christmas and her son, Stacy and his family were in town. Stacy and I went to school together from kindergarten on. Charlotte has a special place in my heart and she had such an impact on so many things in my life. She will be be greatly missed. His kids played so good with Carter and Abby. Preston worked on "building" Carter and Chess board and Rebekah was so sweet to Abby.
We had such a great time in Indiana...
