Updates for the new year

I haven't posted in awhile but I am going to try and do better. I guess you could say that will be one of my resolutions....
Anyway, after this post, I will put some pictures of our christmas and ski trip on.
Our christmas break was wonderful. The kids really enjoyed their time off and Chad was able to take a huge chunk of time off with us as well. Parker got his ALIENS that he wanted and the others got fun stuff as well. The big present from us for the kids was a family ski trip to Snowshoe.
So, on Monday morning, we packed up the car and headed off to the snowy mountains for 5 days. It snowed everyday we were there and the slopes were perfect. Fresh powder everyday and COLD COLD COLD!!!! We put all four in ski school and attempted to spend some time to ourselves skiing and enjoying the time. Funny thing is, the entire three hours off ski school, Chad and I spent going down the bunny slopes checking on our little skiers. I mean come ON! What is more cute than kids in ski school? Nothing I would say.
The first afternoon was a bit tricky. We had this idea in our heads that was not very realistic. Chad and I finally had to agree that we were simply outnumbered. We could not possible attempt to ski with all four at the same time. SO as good parent do, we adapted and changed our course and had a wonderful rest of the week. By the end, Logan was going down the big lift and not falling and Coop was almost ready for it. Parker was a wild man and simply strapped on the skis and headed straight downhill, not a care in the world as to how to stop. Bear was cautious as usual but really started picking up the snowboarding. He even let Chad take him down a SMALL slope on thursday.
All in all, it was a fabulous week. The time was filled with laughter and smiles. Everyone got along and enjoyed the family togetherness.
We had such a wonderful time that we are already planning for next year's trip.
