Family + Snow = Perfect Christmas

What a wonderful way to spent a Christmas holiday; with family in the snow! Just a few pictures of our holiday trip.

We are on our way to the Lake Tahoe area, to stay at a little resort in Hope Valley called Sorensen's. It is a darling little place, a bit on the rustic side and off the main tourist list of places to go. We created our own sledding, sliding and boarding runs. And we didn't have to fight the crowds!! It snowed the whole time there except for the last day. Perfect!!!!

This is the office and little cafe.

We saw that someone had built a snowman. It's a very good snowman, but of course we had to build a snow dragon......

Can you see it taking shape?

We think he is amazing!!! So did the other guests. We even had the owner knock at our cabin door to tell us good job!!!

This is the little cabin we stayed in. Little being the key word. But, it was so cute and had everything we needed, with LOTS of wood stacked in the little outdoor entryway and ready for the stove. There was a kitchen/living area on one side and on the other side was one bedroom with two queen size bunk beds that to even reach the bottom 'bunk' I had to climb the ladder. They were HUGE! Kinda scary to sleep under a queen size bunk bed that huge above you.... Tayler also discovered another queen size bed on top of the area between the bedroom and kitchen. That one he claimed for himself, he could look down into the kitchen area or bedroom area. Watch out below for flying pillows!!!!

Some artistic person created these little bears climbing on the trees, out of moss. I thought they were so clever, I want one in my yard.....Jessica come make me one!!!!

The last day was spent at Kirkwood; them skiing, Tayler snowboarding and me inside having coffee.........................this last day was without a doubt the most beautiful day for them to ski, total sunshine and not a lot of people.
