Good Morning!  I hope everyone had a great start to their first week back after the holidays.  I am slowly easing back into everything now that my kids are back in school today.  Because we had such an amazing time on our trip to Lake Tahoe, I thought I would share a few pictures.  All of these pictures were taken with my old iphone 4S, and I feel like they turned out pretty good.  I can only image how much more beautiful the pictures would have been with my big camera, but I just didn't want to bring it up on the mountain.  Thank goodness for camera phones :)

It was snowing when we arrived and stayed overcast and snowy the first two days.  Both kids went to ski school and did so great!  It also gave Grant and I time to get in a few runs while they were at school.

The remainder of our stay the weather was amazing!  Sunshine and beautiful blue skies.  The views of the lake and the mountains are breathtaking.

The village at Heavenly has a really fun vibe as well.  Lots of great places to eat and hangout after being on the mountain. 

And being a few days right before Christmas all the little shops in the village were decorated so pretty.  It definitely got you in the Christmas spirit!

We spent the first two days skiing, then moved on to the tubing hill...which was a big hit.

Being Preston and Lyla's first time to ski, I'm so happy that they did so well and really enjoyed it!  Now that they are old enough, we hope to make a ski trip a yearly tradition!

Have a great day!
