Christmas Day Sledding

So...... as promised in my post below, here's some pics of our sledding fun out in my parents timber on Christmas Day. They had about a foot of snow on the ground. Katie, my brothers girlfriend from Alabama, had NEVER been sledding before. In fact, this was her first white Christmas ever.

Complete with Jason like jumpsuits (from the Halloween series), ski masks and a FLASK of whiskey, we took to the hills.

WHOOP!!!


Do we look hot? I didn't wear the cowboy hat out.


Katie....the "snow fairy princess" :)

Landon was giggling very loudly at this time...

Christmas with Charli

Our good friends Chad, Brenda and Charli were in town for a family Christmas so we were able to get the kids together for some food, gifts and swimming at the hotel. I've attached a CUTE video of Landon and Charli having a good time in the hotel room together. Notice how Landon copies Charli! Adorable kids!

Winter Update!!

Hey my fellow Russell family stalkers!! :) Welcome back!

I am FINALLY updating as it's been just about two months! I need to get better at doing this. I had some awesome pictures from Thanksgiving and our family outing to the Christmas tree farm, however, due to my memory card being on the fritz, I've lost all of those pictures. I was so sad.

Christmas was great here!
Santa was good to Landon and he really enjoyed leaving him cookies and milk by the fireplace on Christmas Eve. Santa left him a stocking full of goodies, a new semi-truck, a new "big boy" bike complete with training wheels and all sorts of toys. Brad and Katie flew in on Christmas morning from Alabama and Eric, Landon and I were lucky enough to be at the airport to greet them when they arrived. We all piled into the car and headed to my parents house to enjoy Christmas Day. What a great day it was! We had awesome food, presents, family time...oh and did I mention sledding in the woods complete with a flask of whiskey to keep us warm? Only at the Hill house would that happen. I will try to post a video of that, or at least a few pictures because the gear I sported was pretty hot. Friday we headed to Lincoln for the Russell family Christmas. We were able to catch up with some friends we haven't seen in a while and spend some relaxing time with family. I was able to do some shopping and get some extra (well needed) sleep too, so that was nice! Our Christmas was at Uncle Matt's house and the kids were all spoiled of course. New Years Eve was spent at home for us. This has been our tradition for quite some time now. I hope you all had a wonderful 2008 and CHEERS TO AN EVEN BETTER 2009!
