Wow that it’s almost Christmas I figured that I better get this post up!
For Thanksgiving this year we traveled up to my family’s cabin, which is in Pinecrest, CA. In my 33 years, we’ve never spent a holiday at the cabin, EVER!! I KNOW!! We met my parents along with my brother Todd, his wife Erin and my niece Riley up there. We venture out on Wednesday and because we left early enough we hit no traffic. Before we left we let Caitlyn know that there might be some snow. We weren’t sure, but were hoping. About 30 minutes from the cabin, while passing through Sonora, the questions about the snow started. “When is there going to be snow?” “How much snow is there going to be?” “Can I play in it?” You get my drift. Finally she saw the first bit of snow. “I SEE SNOW!!” Over and over again, at each new patch of snow that she saw, ALL THE WAY TO THE CABIN. That was a long 30 minute drive.
We pulled into the driveway just after noon and beat my parents by about 5 minutes – good timing.
We had a blast playing in the little amount of snow there was. Caitlyn was in awe! I just wish that she could have seen more snow, but she didn’t care. She got to make a really pathetic looking snowman and a snow angel that you had to use a lot of imagination to see. We’re planning on going back up in February and I know that we’ll definitely have more then.
We won’t be seeing my brother and his family at Christmas, so the kids exchanged presents. Caitlyn was super excited about her piggy bank that keeps track of her money as she puts it in. To date she has just about $40 in change!! I told her we’ll cash it in before Nashville and she can either take me to dinner :) or buy herself something while we’re there.
Of course we had to get pictures of the girls together. I wish that we lived closer to Todd, Erin and Riley so we could see each other more often than we do. I have a feeling that it will be quite awhile until we see them again. Until then we’ll have to be satisfied with these pictures.
I should be getting some other pictures from my mom this weekend, so I’ll probably do another post with more pictures! You love seeing pictures of my girls, right? :)
