Christmas in Idaho

We spent 6 days in Idaho with Chris's family over Christmas this year. There was snow on the ground every day so one day we went sledding (or "tobogganing" as they call it here). So fun!

Here is Jessica (Chris's sister) having fun in the snow

Here is Sam, who I mentioned in my last post about Boise. Having so much fun in the snow!

Christmas 2008

Here we are picking out our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving 2008. Right after we landed at LAX from Tennessee we went to get it! We get our tree from the Delancey Street Foundation tree lot (they have several in LA).

Here is our tree--I'm sorry for the bad picture, but I just couldn't get a good picture! It was a big tree--9 feet tall! Of course Chris's allergies were terrible with the live tree so we might have to get an artificial tree next year.

Finally, on Christmas morning (we celebrated on Saturday, December 13) we opened some presents and even let Riley open one of the gifts. Keep in mind that this gift was a box of Little John's Toffee so it smelled really good to him! Video below...
