Well, it was fun...even though we forgot a baby backpack for Liz. We had to take turn carrying her and skiing without poles. Almost like something we had to do for ski practice.

Three other couple came over and we ate in the upstairs. Ben Grandmother Ekstrom gave us this awesome new table cloth with was perfect for the occasion.

We drove four hours North (if you don't get lost or take wiggle breaks) Lizzy needed several wiggle breaks:

Elizabeth was a trouper. Ben is standing near a lake on the property of the cabin we rented for the week after Christmas.

Thanks to Heather for the Snugli which was perfect for taking Elizabeth skiing. The snow and trails were awesome. Ben got to use his new boots. While Ben napped, I completed a puzzle from Hannah.

We had fun snow shoeing and sledding before it rained!!! yeah, big let down. So then we played board games and watched movies. LOTS of relaxing. Below, Elizabeth looks like an in mate.
