Ring in the New....






NEW is that our whole family went on a ski trip to Vermont this weekend. While there was much comedy, a good time was had by all and I'm happy to say that four of the five of us were on skis which was thrilling. Sophia did amazing on the slopes and earned the nickname "hotdogger" by a ski buddy. She had no fear of going up on the chair lift even by herself the first day while her mother was panicked watching and waiting at the bottom. She did awesome! I'm so proud of you, Sophia!!! Wesley had the good fortune of no room in the daycare for his age group in the morning, so why not put some skis on him and see what happens? Well, he had a blast and did an hour of up and down on the magic carpet which is like a conveyor belt of skiers up a gentle hill, then he turned to the big lift and said "when are we going on that one?" No time like the present, so off to the big lift we went! When asked what his favorite part was, he exuberantly said "the ride!" He loved the chair lift and careening off the lift like a sandwich with Evan and Liz as the bread. Whoo hoo! We look forward to many more family ski trips in the future!!!
