Let the holiday celebrations begin! Mom and I flew out a bit earlier than the boys to meet up with Ali and Bevan in beautiful Salt Lake City. We had some time in gorgeous, cool, blue sky days to site see and shop and finally head to the mountains.

With the lil jeep filled to the brim with groceries and luggage, Ali, Mom, and I headed west to the mountains, just as Google Maps directed.
We were greeted with a cute home for the week and piling snow.
Finally the boys met us up there. Then Aunt Sandy and Uncle Keith. What a house-full of great family!

|a house down the road "blew over" (??) whoops.|
|while the house was great and seemingly close to the slopes, it was a bit of a hike every day|
|complete with a nice apres ski hot tub|
Christmas Eve included a feast of a dinner after a long day of skiing. Then, some Moonshiners (the Discovery tv show about making moonshine) and puzzles before Santa could come.
Christmas morning was nice and leisurely. Secret santa gifts were exchanged. And we woke to a nice dusting of snow outside.

We made a pit stop at a cheeky martini party on the slopes. Good times had by all on this Christmas Day!
|Merry Merry Christmas to all!|
