Not everyone had a break over Christmas break. The high school boys from Drayton that play hockey are in a co-op with Grafton and had a tournament in Warroad. The first game was lost in overtime, second game was lost closely through a tough game, and the third game the Spoilers played they won! The boys basketball team played in Hillsboro and the Titans won. Most of the teams had practice at least some during break. It was so nice to have almost two weeks off from school that is. Taylor turned thirteen this Christmas Eve, finally a teenager! And to go with it she got her very first cell phone! We look forward to be better connected. Wink, wink. To both of us, family is important, and Tayior's Christmas traditions include: Opening family presents on Christmas Eve and then they rent out the Grafton Armory with family on Christmas day. Laiken's Christmas traditions are usually spending a few days with all of her family, playing games, eating, and going to church.
