Hey Mr Grumpy Gills....

What do you do when life gets tough?? Just Keep Skiing Just Keep Skiing Just Keep Skiing Skiing Skiing....(I know I am corny, but I thought it fit).  Anyone know what this post is about?

Anyone....

Anyone??....

Aww come on you can guess......

Okay I will tell you, SKIING!!! As you all know if you read my blog daily, I went skiing this past weekend with my family for my birthday.  I love love love to ski, and I had not been in 2 years.  The last time I went skiing was in Whistler, Canada during New Years of 06-07.  We cross country road tripped it, and we hit the slopes for a week.  It was hubby and I's first trip as a dating couple, and it was soo much fun. The next winter we did not make it out to any slopes, and then the next winter I was with child.  Anyway, it had been a while.  I live near a ski lodge, and so my family came up to my house on Friday night.  We had a great time playing the Wii Fit that I got for my birthday from my inlaws, and drinking Cranberry Margaritas, and of course everyone enjoyed playing with little man, who stayed up WAY past his bedtime to play :).



 The next morning daddy cooked breakfast.  He made my most favorite breakfast in the world gravy and biscuits.  No one up here makes it, and I miss it a lot.  However, I refused to let Caleb have a bite, because it is basically grease and milk, and so no healthy.  Then it was time to hit the slopes!!

Here we are before we left my house minus Katherine, who took FOREVER to get there Saturday morning :).  Caleb did not go skiing, he stayed at Memaw's, but he joined in the picture.


We then headed out.  The car ride was fun, and was filled with my sisters and I screaming country and bluegrass music at the top of our lungs while obnoxiously dancing in the backseat.  My dad and stepmom seemed immune to our loudness.

Once we arrived at the slopes it took a little bit to get everything together and get out on the hills.  I spent the first half teaching my middle sister and dad how to ski.  Dad decided it wasn't for him, but Ran did a good job once she got the hang of it.  I looked over at one point coming down a hill and she was literally hugging a tree because she got scared. It was funny. :) 

Dad, Nancy and Ran left about mid day but Kat, Nick, and my bro-in-law stayed out until around 10:30.  Basically when the slopes turned to ice.  I have to brag that I did not fall the entire day! We spent most of our time on blues, and it was so fun.  My sister however, yea this one with the pretty little face and sweet expression...


Don't let her fool you.  She is evil! She decided I needed to fall, so she snowboarded directly in front of me coming down and hill, and we rolled into a ball. It was hilarious, and it took forever to get me back up, because my ski's kept sliding down the hill. 

It was such a fun day. Thanks again daddy! (I can't wait to be able to take Caleb skiing one day, even though hubby says he needs to be a snow boarder).

How Fun!!! I have never been skiing and I'm not sure that I could ever go. I'm terrified of heights and I found out that you have to ride the lift up, etc... NO THANKS! lol

And OMG.. when did Caleb get so much hair? Seriously, it's like he grew up overnight. WOW!
