I have a bit of story with this layout. :)
In 2014 our extended family was not able to celebrate Christmas in December. We always celebrate the holidays with my mom's brother and his family. With our family a lot of the times it's very hard to do the holidays around the holidays because we have an EMT, Teachers, Cop, Store Manager and you get the picture. lol We were not able to be together as a family until Feb. 2015 to celebrate our Christmas. A lot of the time I host Christmas; however since it was going to be towards the end of February I really didn't want my Christmas Tree up that long or go through the hassle of taking it down and putting it back up. I am good doing it once a year! lol So we decided since this was really nontraditional holiday instead to go ice fishing as a family.
Some of us not a problem however my husband at the time hated to fish, my mom had not been on the ice since a little girl she doesn't like it all, my dad with his health problems can't be around wood stoves or gas heaters anymore and my aunt is not a very big fan of it. Not everyone has fish houses either. lol I know your thinking why do this then? Because we have 2 little boys that LOVE to ice fish and it was more about making the day for them since it was not your normal Christmas. lol After many calls back before thinking we should not do it, us kids and mainly my one cousin finally said lets just do it we'll make it work and it will be an adventure!! Little did I know.....
Our day started off with -40 below and -60 below wind chill. WOW looks like we picked the literally the coldest day of the year to go ice fishing. lol Hubby and my day started off giving our stinky dog a bath. My brother is allergic to him so he gets a bath every time my brother comes home. lol We got to the lake, drove over an ice heave and my brother lost the running board off his truck that should have been a sign. lol We set up our portable fish houses as fast as we could because man was it cold!!!!
My parents arrived, we got them into the fish houses and set up. Then set up everyone else. While fishing I got a MONSTER hit....I was worried about breaking my brother's fancy rod so had him come help me. Back and forth really fighting with this fish OH MY I thought I was gonna have a MONSTER....turns out some how my uncle and I got our fishing lines tangled with each other. 50 feet our houses where, and we bother were in different fish house. lol WOW 25 min fighting with each others line. I saved the fishing line that broke and attached to the picture in the bottom right corner. Man it's so cold in those portables!!
We grilled on the lake, my cousin and I kept dropping the food on the ground because it was so cold the tongs wouldn't close tight on stuff lol, beverages froze except for my wine hahah, one kid stepped in a hole and didn't tell anyone he was soaked for hours, the kids dumped my aunts bag down a hole, lost some fishing tackle, people got hooked bad, had a fishing pole tangled in the ceiling of an ice house, ran out of firewood on the coldest day of the year so don't recommend that, lol Where was my one cousin in all of this at my uncle and aunts place were it was toasty and warm sick in bed...so she says. lol We did catch fish but they froze on us. ROFL 9:30 pm we called it quits ripped it all down in 10 min. Get all done my uncle says did anyone use the nice fish house over there the heats been on for 8 hours while some of us were freezing in the portables. ROFL!! What an adventure we had, everyone had fun and most important of all we spent time together as a family and made an awesome story!
So peeps that was our day on Feb. 21, 2015.
