In 2011, it is one of my resolutions to stay connected with family and friends and share important moments in our daily lives with each of you... hopefully this will give you a glimmer into our home, see our children grow, and be involved in our journey during the year.

Let It Snow...

After Christmas this year, Cory and I, the boys (minus Knox, he stayed home with Cindy), Roger, Gwenn, Casey, and Taylor went up to the Santiam Pass in Sisters, Oregon to play in the snow. The boys loved it. When we got there the weather was perfect. We decided to use our own sleds first and while it was fun, the snow wasnt packed down and we really couldn't sled, but the boys had fun making the trek to the top of the hill with snow past our knees.

After lunch we went over to the innertubing. I was expecting a light dusting but instead it was like ice pellets and the visibility was horrible, but Riley and Wills had so much fun! They didn't want to leave despite how much snow was falling and the wind blowing it in their faces.

Chase on the other hand had enough and was ready to go. Earlier in the day, Cory fell holding him and Chase hurt his leg. He limped for almost two days. So Chase kept Gwenn company in the snow hut the rest of the day.
So here is our family picture... we probably should have taken it when we first got there.
Chase played on this little slope for like 10 minutes. He just wanted Roger to keep putting him at the top so he could slide down.
Here is Gwenn and Taylor in the lodge. I love Taylor's snow suit... She was so cute!!!
Wills had so much fun making snow angels. The boys cannot wait to go back. We are thinking about making a trip up to Big Bear Mountain just outside of LA next month.
