Up North at Grandma and Grandpa's!

The day after Christmas Mitchell had to work, but after he got home his parents, Quincie, Kathryn and Chad picked us up and we all went up north to Sue's mom and dad for the weekend. They live way in the middle of no where, I'm not sure where. But it's in the woods up north. And it was beautiful and relaxing and we had a lot of fun! I was initially worried about Alex, him and I were recovering from head colds and he was so exhausted from the excitment of Christmas. He did very well though. We got the spare bedroom and we brought the portable crib play pen thing that my mom has, so he slept at the foot of our bed, and he slept well. He was so worn out from all the playing! We got up there late friday night and saturday morning we all got up, had breakfast and went outside to play in the snow! The boys thought it would be a good idea to build a gigantic snowman...

It was extremely entertaining watching the three of them (Mitchell, Chad and Dad LaVire) trying to make it "big enough". Silly boys. The snow was sooo wet and heavy. It was actually raining during all of this! Nasty weather!

But clearly we all had a lot of fun, despite the rain! The rest of the weekend was spent playing games and drinking! Grandma has a bartending book, and she's trying to test all of the drinks, so we helped her out!

Chad, Mitch and I played Starcraft for four and a half hours (we didn't finish). I was going to win, but we all got sleepy and wanted to watch Dark Knight with everyone else.

There was also Euchre, Pirates, and Settlers of Catan to play, not to mention movies to watch and talking. It was a very relaxing weekend and we're looking forward to going back up soon!
