Belated Holiday Greetings!

My dear bloggy friends, I hope your Christmas was all that you wanted it to be.
 We spent our Christmas on a winter vacation in the mountains.

We enjoyed some wintery walks....

We spent half of Christmas Day at a small, nearby snow resort.
Papa helped our little guy snowboard as his mom was off on the bigger slopes. 
Papa later joined us in the bar...as my son-in-law broke his foot the very first night we were there! I'm not sure what "good" story we ended up with but he was a good sport not being able to snow-board after twisting his ankle falling from a bed trying to turn on a cathedral ceiling fan! 
(As he laid on the floor my husband humorously pointed out the fan switch!)

We got home Monday to find another dumping of snow. 
Luckily Papa had help with the snow shoveling. 

So no Tuesday Archives this week as I'm going to spend the week enjoying having our little guy underfoot and working on a Friday Finish. Today it continues to snow...so were definitively having an inside day by the fire. (I can 't believe the base of our tree below is almost completely buried in snow)

 I'm truly looking forward to spending the week with him and especially enjoy the sound of his l
little voice singing Old McDonald in the background as I write this post and he busily plays. With that said, I'm not sure how much blogging or sewing I'll get done as it has taken two hours to even write this post and I'm now being called to play "Uno Moo"...but who am I to resist!
Hoping the holiday season finds you surrounded by family and fun too.

  2. What fun, but a shame about your son-in-law's ankle. We are getting a Powder Dump Day here, perfect for skiers, and to watch from indoors! Stay warm!

  3. I feel for your SIL. My ankle is nearly healed properly after fracturing it in June. Sounds like you are going to have a fantastic week with the little one.. enjoy...

  4. Ouch!!!! I hope he mends quickly. The snow is so pretty. Enjoy the fun of the little guy.

  5. Enjoy the grandguy while you can. There'll be plenty of time to sew and blog later. Hope the SIL makes the most of his time off.

  6. ouch shame about the ankle and first day too. Lots of snow for your grandson to enjoy but must have been very cold.

  7. Sounds like you will have a fun week, hope SIL's foot heals quickly.

  10. What a great time, except for your SIL's foot. Hope he heals quickly and can hit the slopes again soon.

    Enjoy your time with your grandson and Happy New Year!
