Christmas Day

Christmas Day started off with Marti getting up to start the cinnamon rolls. Matthew was next to wake up and then Jacob. Dale then decided to join us. Everyone was waiting on the girls to get up and by then breakfast was done so we ate before we opened presents. We spent the rest of the day lounging around the house. It was a very warm day. We decided that night to head downtown to Zoo Lights. The zoo is decorated with lots of lights. As we left a cold front was blowing through and I mean blowing!!! The temperature dropped into the upper 30's and the wind was so bad it was knocking out power and and knocking down street signs. It was so windy that they cancelled Zoo Lights since their power was flickering. We headed back home and drove by a house in our area that has the light synchronized to music. It was pretty cool and a few other houses next to it had their lights synchronized also. It was so cold by time we got home that I lit the fireplace and we warmed up by it.
