After we opened presents on Christmas day, we started packing up to go skiing. We loaded up all the things we would need in the mountains, including snow boots!
Then we drove up to Canyon. We drove the entire way without stopping. That is the first time we have ever done that with three kids. We made it in five hours flat.
The next morning, Rebecca came out with her crew and we opened presents with Nana and Pappy.
After presents, we loaded up and headed to the mountains. We got about halfway there and it started snowing on us pretty hard. The next day all the highways in Amarillo were shut down, so we made it just in time. We probably got about 2 feet of fresh snow while we were in Angel Fire, so the skiing was great!
The kids found a big icicle the first day we skiied while we were getting ready to go.
Nathan was a cool dude just waiting on us to go.
Finally ready to ski!

We skied on blue runs most of the time. The greens were too flat with all the powder. I still think their favorite part is stopping at the top for lunch. Everyday they wanted the same thing: a hotdog, chips, skittles and hot chocolate. They were happy kids after lunch.
Henry hung out at the house with Aunt Becca, Ruby and Charlotte.
The three babies learned really quickly where to find food.
Here is a good picture to end on….Nana and Pappy with all the grandbabies.
We drove all the way back on New Years eve and then had three days at home before work started. It was a great trip!
