Mom, Dad and I left very, very early Wednesday morning headed for Denver. Luckily Mother Nature was on our side and we had sunny skies all the way there. It was extremely windy across Wyoming. I had really sore fingers from the death grip I had on the steering wheel by the time my driving turn was over. We tried to get a picture of the blowing wind but it didn't turn out well.
We arrived in Denver safe and sound in the early afternoon. That evening was the Eaton family party so when we got to Lyn's house (where Leif and Laura are living right now) all the Eaton kids were there. That included Leif, Laura and their 4 kids, Laura's brother Brian and his wife Julianna and their son Mason, Laura's brother Nate and his wife Stacy and their three kids Evan, Austin and Lindsay, and Laura's Aunt and Cousin. It was quite a houseful and we had a fabulous night! We had a wonderful dinner, played games, did skits, decorated gingerbread trees and opened presents. It was a wonderful way to spend Christmas Eve. Here are a few random shots of the evening~One of the skits required group participation. This is a clip of the boys singing Rudolph like the Chipmunks, it was hysterical!
