Well - It has been a long time since we posted! We hope that every had a great Christmas! We sure did!
On Christmas Eve, we headed to Paige's moms. Luey had a great dinner prepared! Paige's brother Mike, and his wife Summer came down! And as usual - Mike was the life of the party! It was so fun to be able to spend some time with them! We had lots of laughs as we played catch phrase, and the hand slap game!
Paige worked on Christmas morning for a few hours, so of course the little children in us- we got up at 330 to see what Santa had brought us!

Paige being surprised!
We had decided that we would keep Christmas low key - cause we've had so many fun adventures this year! But Paige is not very good at keeping the rules - and she got Nick ....
His very first....
He was so surprised and excited!
After Paige got off work, we headed over to her Mom's for our traditional Christmas Breakfast! You've got to love Luey's Christmas Eggs and Monkey Bread! It was fun to spend time with Paige's brothers and sister!
Nick worked the day after Christmas, so after he got off, we headed to Minersville to visit his family!
On Saturday morning, we went to the farm with Nick's brother Gus. We got to feed the cows - and of course - no trip to the farm is complete without a ride in the tractor!
Nick - what a Sexy Farmer!
Us in the John Deere!
Nick's brother, Gus, was driving another tractor - and one of the lines froze- because it was so blasted cold out to the farm! So Nick had to steer while Gus worked the gears manually from OUTSIDE the tractor! I had quite a few laughs watching them! They eventually got their telepathy going - and it became a smooth operation!
Nick Headed over to check on Gus when his tractor froze!
A perfect operation!
Because they both had to operate one of the tractors - that left me - to drive the John Deere - pulling the full feed bucket - back to the shop - oh man - I was so nervous! and I went SO SLOW - but it was fun - I even sang "HE Thinks My Tractor's Sexy" to myself!
Then we went to check the water - and of course the pump had frozen over. So Nick and Gus set up the propane tank - got a flame going, and set out to thaw the pipes. Gus told me later, that Nick had propane fumes on his pants, and when they opened up the flame, Nick caught on fire. Of course Nick didn't tell me, cause he knew I would have freaked out! I seriously checked Nicks legs the rest of the day, and asked him a zillion times if he was okay!
Nick - coming out of the pump house!

The best part about waiting for the pipes to thaw - was that we got to go try out Nick's new gun! We headed out in the truck - to hunt rabbits! It was so much fun! I couldn't load Nick's clips fast enough! It was a good thing I bought a brick of 400 bullets! I even shot A rabbit - and of course - it was the ONLY one that cried! If you've every heard a rabbit cry - you know what I'm talking about - it was so sickening! I was done shooting after that!
NEW YEARS EVE
For New Years Eve we had some friends over for games, play the Wii, and breakfast! We had a great time! We hung out with Blair and Vanessa, Matt and Amanda, Troy and Andrea, and our friends Craig and Sarah were here from Connecticut! It was fun to hang out with them!
We hope everybody had a great holiday season, and we wish you all a great New Year!
