Ho Ho Ho, I need some SNOW!

Well, I hope everyone's Christmas was as merry as ours was.

We had a really beautiful and lazy Christmas! I have to admit that I didn't start out with a good attitude on Christmas morning. Our kids asked us the night before how early they could wake us up and I told them between 5-6am since that's what time John and I normally wake up. I didn't factor in a terrible night's sleep or the fact that we've been sleeping in until 7-8am OR the fact that my kids would actually set their alarm for 5am. I was a wee bit grumpy when they woke me up. But I took a 3 hour nap that afternoon so it all worked out okay in the end. Smile.

We've actually had a string of lazy days which have been wonderful and exactly what we all needed.

Our company (John's side of our family) is getting closer--they're about an hour away--and we're going to have Christmas (Round Two) with them and tomorrow we're heading to the mountains. I'm super excited for two reasons:
1. We're going skiing!!!!!
2. There is actually SNOW in the mountains.

I think I've forgotten what snow looks like. Ha! This has been the weirdest winter we've experienced since we've lived here. It's been very warm and very dry. We've barely had any snow at all and I miss it!

The mountain forecast is looking promising though...great skiing conditions and plenty of the white stuff for us to enjoy. I can't wait!

I'm taking my computer so maybe I'll share some pics while we're there, but if not, HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone!

Mer,

Can't believe I'm this close to you as I type this. Have a great time in the mountains! Eric plans to hit Keystone sometime this week.

Hope you have a great time! We actually had snow on Christmas night...the first time in over 100 years we've had a white Christmas. We ended up with over 14" by Sunday night. The 3rd largest snowstorm ever recorded for our area. I'm loving it!

Happy new year, cutie! When everything settles in, I hope we can get our heads together for a little Silhouette chatter!

I hope you're having a great time skiing--in spite of my jealousy! ;) And Happy New Year to you!

Can you believe we had a white Christmas HERE?! We were in NJ and missed most of it, BUT STILL.

And they set their ALARM?!!! HAHAHA Oh my word.
