First Family Christmas

Today was our first family Christmas.  This year it was held at my Aunt and Uncle's farm.  We had a great day visiting, enjoying wonderful food and playing games.  The highlight of being at Aunt Martha and Uncle Ken's is always the wagon ride through the woods. 

 
This ride was perfect; just like out of a movie.  We had snow so the wagon was replaced with the sleigh,  the horse's harnesses had sleigh bells attached and we all sang Christmas Carols.  This is definitely what making memories is all about.


 
Since it was snowing like crazy, everyone was bundled up in hats, mitts, scarves and blankets.  Below is my Mom and daughter toasty warm in handknits.
 
 


 I hope everyone had a great weekend filled with family time and knitting like I did!

What a lovely tradition. I am so jealous because it is still warmish here. Lovely memories mad for you and your family.
Hugs,
