Skiing with Uncle Stephen!

We just returned from our Christmas ski vacation to Hokkaido. We stayed at the Tomamu ski resort. This was Andrew's first time on skis and he did a great job. He had lessons every morning and afternoon. At the end of the day he would make one or two runs with his Uncle Stephen and his daddy. He really did a great job. Ethan was sick and had a fever the whole week so the day care option went out the window. Mom did a lot of hanging out in the hotel and riding the shuttle bus (the only thing that made Ethan happy all week). I did get to make 3 runs. I'm a little (lot) rusty. I fell getting off the ski lift the first time up. I was totally laughing at myself. And the lift attendant kept saying. "ok? you ok? ok, yes?" "No...I'm way too old and out of shape to be okay".

We celebrated Christmas this morning and the boys were both thrilled and overwhelmed with it all. Ethan was more excited about the unwrapping then he was about the actual gift. I hope everyone had a great Christmas week also.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

We had a wonderful Saturday. Daddy was home and we kicked off our Christmas festivities. We are getting ready for Uncle Stephen's arrival and our big ski trip to Hokkaido for the Christmas holidays.
