We went to Montana for Christmas again this year. We had a lovely time. Allyson Barton rode with us there and I realize that we have no pictures to prove it! She was a pretty quiet rider in the back seat! We left Friday morning at 4:45 am and drove straight, getting into Devon around 8pm that night. We were there for a week and here is a glimpse into our trip!
While driving, we found this cool flowing water, turned into ice formation!
More of the ice formation
Lots of snow even on branches
Another of the ice formation
This car was so loaded down with stuff! See the stack of buckets? And the bicycle? The inside of the car was just as jam packed!

Dennis turned white quickly in the cold and snow!
Ha - so sledding there was some prickly pear cactus that we fell in. Rowena told her dad she knew he had some slivers in his feet. She had his head lamp on and was trying to get the slivers out!
Rowena's precious smile!
Concentrating so hard to get the slivers out
Rowena giving me a foot massage - my feet were still slimy with lotion the next morning! :)
