Wow, 2011 really? New year's in my house is truly mundane. Like... Jason worked, the girls were asleep by 8 and I fell asleep in my bed to HGTV by 10:15. However, the last 2 months have been a whirl wind of life, work, school, 2 beautiful little girls and truly treading water.
I accepted my annual seasonal position here. It feels like I go into hiding for about 4 months. If you are anyone I get together with on a regular basis, you know what I am talking about. Sometimes I return your calls, sometimes we actually get to the making of plans, and if I am truly lucky, I get to see you:) This full time working Mom stuff is for the birds!
However, since I am working, Jason and I decided to make the most of it and go all out for the girls for Christmas. Santa brough them Skiis, boots and bindings! Even though we both snowboard (and have for years), we thought we would teach the girls to ski first.
I bought Jason a season pass to Snoqualmie in September, and now Reese and I have been lucky enough to join him in that! (Thanks Dad and Mom:)) We went up yesterday with most of my family, and as I looked around at Payton coming down the mountain on skiis and telling me, "Go away Mommy, I do it myself" and Reese successfully making pizza turns and fench friis all the way down with no assistance, it hit me...I am so content in my family. My parents were watching along with my wonderful brother, his girlfriend and daughter. Taking photos, videos and all full of smiles. Because I had 2 amazing little girls that were making there way, and a husband helping me each step. I am lucky, I am blessed!
Enjoy a few of my little ski bunnies...And Happy, Safe and Loving new year to you all!
(P.S. Eat some snow! It does a body good:))
