We were able to work in our Baughman family Christmas today around Greg's schedule and the Baughman's travel plans. Ty fussed a good deal of the drive up, repeating "all done" and "down" over and over. By the time we arrived, we were all ready to be "all done"! He made up for it by sleeping the entire drive home. Kate didn't allow that peace to last and used the time to harass and taunt her sisters in the back seat. At one point, Greg told the girls to "just ignore her and she will quit" and immediately gasped saying he sounded just like his mother! Family road trips don't improve with time......It was a gorgeous drive though. Greg drove up and I looked like a tourist taking photos of the snow covered landscape out the van window. I couldn't help myself and wished there was more snow!
Ty found a trash can in the office and drug it out just as we started opening gifts. He was more interested in throwing away the wrapping paper than seeing what was inside any of the packages. He had a blast. Kate may be on to something with her prediction that he will grow up to be a trash man! Grandma has given up on her gift opening system. There are just too many kids to keep track of whose turn it is to start each round! They all had fun and were spoiled rotten, as usual.
After dinner and gifts, Grandpa used the tractor and took the girls out on the bobsled he and Greg built together about 30 years ago. They came in half frozen but smiling from ear to ear.
