It was in the negatives today (temperature). My siblings and I started a tradition last year of hanging out together on Christmas Eve with just the four of us. Our time together has three requirements: outdoors, food, and Matthew doing something stupid. Last year he jumped out of the car, and this year he was stuck in Apple Valley, causing us to pick him up two hours after we were supposed to start. What would we do without him? We were planning to go sledding today, but the weather was not permitting. Instead we ventured off to Minnehaha falls. We walked around and did a little exploring. I've been to the falls many times, but it never gets old. After that, we stopped at Smashburger for a late lunch, and finally we went to Barnes & Noble for last minute Christmas gifts.
