Lyle Family Traditions

This year for Christmas, Jake and I went to Arizona to spend the holiday with my family.


In the Lyle home on Christmas Eve, we dress up like biblical characters and eat what we like to call a "Jerusalem dinner". Jake and I were the Hawaiian Mary and Joseph complete with facial hair and a belly.

Another crazy thing we do is the "Polar Dip". In the beginning of January we jump into our freezing pool and swim across. I have gotten some interesting questions about it and even as a family we don't know why we actually do.

I couldn't get Jake on video because he jumped in too fast. The pool was 50-ish degrees this year.
