Doug and I stayed up in Montana this year for the holiday season. Last year my friend Jodi flew in on Christmas day, so that was something to look forward to…this year, I got laid off from my job and we didn’t have any planned visitors, so we really tried to make it special.
St. Nicholas Day
Everyone gets a little treat in their shoes! Also, other pictures of Brodie enjoying the snow and visiting Home Depot! Watch the whole video of him running – it gets better the closer he gets to the camera.
Lewis and Clark Caverns
One of the things we did to make the season special was a tour of Lewis and Clark Caverns. Our friend, Emily, came with us. During the holiday season they do special tours by lantern. It was warm in the caverns even though it was super cold outside! So cold that I believe they even canceled the morning tours (somewhere around minus 20?!?). Ours was at 12:45. Here are some pictures from the tour.
Christmas Day we woke up to fresh snow and went on a walk! For early dinner, we went over to a friend’s house for dinner, which was very fun and very thoughtful of them to include us. We brought Creme de Menthe brownies (except we subbed in peppermint schnappes) and potoatoes. Here are some pictures from Christmas day.
Last but not least, a family Christmas caroling video.
