Like most years, we have a very busy Christmas day. Christmas 2013 began with the girls running downstairs in the morning to see what Santa left. First they checked out to goodies in the stockings.
We packed up the car and started the trek to Northfield. We didn't get more than a mile down the road, and we turned back home. Adam was driving Jamie's car and the roads were pretty slippery. We decided to go back home and take the other car. No big deal... just repack the entire trunk!
It did take a bit longer to get down to Northfield, and we passed several cars in the ditch, but we made it fine.
After a quick bite to eat, we got the girls changed into their Christmas dresses and headed over to the farm for lunch and more presents.
Sylvia spent a couple days with Grandpa and Grandma chicken following Christmas day, so Violet came home with Jamie and Adam to try to get back into a "normal" routine.
The one big change this Christmas season was celebrating the Brodd Christmas in the same calendar year! We all headed out to the cabin on Saturday the 28th.
It isn't a Brodd (Lickfett) Christmas without making homemade ice cream. This year both Sylvia and Violet helped out in the cranking.
