Christmas eve we drove up to the mountain, well technically not all the way up because we didn't have snow chains to make it the full way up so we found an area to park at and let Rae play in the snow for a while. She loved every bit of it and it was every bit of magical. We ate lunch just down the road and afterwards we made friends with the horses giving sleigh rides. We would've been all over a ride, but the wait was two hours. Rae was neighing the whole way home.
Christmas is MUCH more fun with you have kids. I mean, festive breakfasts and watching their excitement as they open up gifts.. it doesn't get any better. We never go all out, a gift or two for handsome and I and a few necessary and fun things for the babe. The girl made out, between all her grandparents and us I'll be hiding some things for a few months ;)
