Do you ski?

So, do you ski? I don't. I tried to learn 2 years ago, and learned after just a few short hours that skiing wasn't for me. So, I threw down my poles, got out of those horribly uncomfortable ski boots, grabbed some hot chocolate and retired in front of the fire for the rest of the vacation. And you know what, it was a WONDERFUL vacation :) The boys continued skiing, I met them for lunch at the top of the mountain each day, and I read to my heart's content. So relaxing!!

So, Brad had another opportunity to head to Park City last week for a conference, and Bennett and I joined him toward the end of the week. Angie and Gavin joined us for the trip, and we had a blast!!

Here they are skiing...

This is called the 'Sweet Pea' slope. When I was learning, I called it the 'Hill of Terror'...
And this thing... I can't tell you how many times I fell on this little lift thingy. So embarrassing. Bennett does it with ease...

But, I do enjoy the snow. And visiting with the boys when they aren't skiing...

And, we do enjoy a good snow ball fight...

And there is nothing better than a snow dog and his owner. These were built right outside our patio (with pretzels and bugles, of course!)

We really had a great time in Utah!

So tell me, do you ski?
If you do, please don't try to make me feel bad because I don't. (At one point Bennett asked why 'mommies don't like to go outside of the lobby', which is totally unfair - I went outside of the lobby plenty of times!! :)
And if you don't, do you want to come hang out with me by the fire the next time we go?
I'll buy the hot chocolate :)

Remembering My Creative Side

Wow! It has been a looonggg time since my last post!! Wow! Sorry to my 2 readers :)
I have a post in my brain about January - I'll do it soon, I promise!!

In the meantime, I've actually been busy scrapbooking! Check it out :)

Here are a few new layouts:

This is a book that I've made that will have our family Christmas card and Bennett's Santa picture from each year. It's up to date :)

Here is my December Daily album with pictures and details from every day in December, 2009. This was a Teresa Collins kit from last year. It came together really easily (I'm just including a few pages).

So, that's just part of what has been keeping me busy.
Well, actually, this is a little bit of fun that I've been having recently.
Hope you have had a great weekend! It's COLD here!!
