After Patrick shoveled us out we headed to Mankato for the Haefner Christmas at my aunt Karen's. The ride wasn't too bad until Belle Plaine, but then the snow started coming down like crazy and the roads were only plowed on one side so we decided to get off in Le Sueur and skip going to Karen's and just go to my parents' house instead.
Here are a couple pictures that we took our on detour through Le Sueur. It was pretty crazy how big the snow flakes were and how fast they were coming down.
That night we had our family Christmas at my parents' house. Mom & Luke made the Christmas tree table decorations the night before. For dinner we had salad, crab legs, ham & roasted potatoes. Mom and Dad also made homemade Bailey's Irish Cream. It was pretty tasty, much better than our glogg we had the night before.
After dinner we opened presents. Nathan and Nickie got the new Super Mario game for the Wii for Christmas so after the presents Nathan, Luke and Patrick played the game until one in the morning. The game is pretty fun, but I am not sure it is fun enough to play for five hours straight.
