It seems the holidays come and go so fast! I was a little sad with the weather this year...it was my 'turn' to host the Preister Christmas at our house for the first time!!! I even went as far as making a homemade New York Cheesecake (which am sad to say I ate most of it!) But, I was very thankful I was 'stranded' with my boys!!! On Christmas Eve my dad and Jody were able to make it for a very quick supper and they of course had to stay while Braxton opened a few gifts from them!!! They were crazy for coming in this weather, but we were very thankful they came!:) On Christmas day we managed to make it to Brad's parents...did I mention thru a field is how we got home?!?!?!? Although they only live 2 short blocks away, there was a massive drift that caused us to go a mile or 2 out of our way...but we made it for a nice lunch, presents, and some play time. Luckily we ventured home when we did...you see, we lost power from 8pm til 8am, which is NOTHING compared to how long some were out...but, lucky once again, we have our wood burner that kept our house to a whooping 73 degrees!!! We spent most of Saturday playing with A LOT of new toys Santa brought us...and Sunday was a major snow removal day for I believe the entire town of Lindsay!!! We hope everyone had a great holiday, and Best Wishes for 2010!!!

Braxton won a stocking full of goodies from the Newman Grove Bank!

Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for making it over!!!...and THANKS for my presents!

Playing with his little people fire truck and blocks from Gma and Gpa P!
He was pretty excited about his new tooth brush!!! Which is coming in handy since he got his top left front tooth!!!
This little monkey thinks he needs to stand as he does everything!!!

Another new toy from Santa! Good thing this one is meant to walk behind!
The 3 of us...

One of his favorite new toys from Santa!

he is pretty proud of his new wagon from Gpa and Gma P...we take many rides thru the house daily...if you ever want a ride, stop by!

little cutie!
some of the snow drifts at our shop..if you can see off into the distance, the old tow truck is buried to the cab!!!

..another drift blocking the shop door...

...another wagon ride!!!

...and he is OUT!!!
Thanks Jesse for my hats...GO HUSKERS!!!!!!!!!!!

So exhausted...this is how he fell asleep on daddy!!!
