Shaver Lake January 2010

We were so lucky to get to spend a wonderful week in Shaver Lake during the holidays at a beautiful cabin. We had several friends of the kids come up to hang out, sled and play in the snow with us! Although there was very little snow, we made the most of it and enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing week!
My attempt at a family picutre.......didn't work out too well. It got a little late in the evening, we didn't all have the right clothes and some of these kiddos didn't want to cooperate very well but I think this is kind of cute:)
Crazy Dance Party! A Yentes tradition for any special occasion. lol
My kids, Morgan Flora, Stephen Henriksen and gary:), getting ready for a little sledding in our backyard........it turned into a hysterical snow-ball (snow-ice) fight. Fun times!

Upstairs on the balcony
In the spa......my kids and Stephen
Up to no good........
Gillian's first walk in snow.....she couldn't even wait to change out of her p.j.'s:)

Some of Garrett's ASB friends came up for the day. I cooked most of the day and the kids played in the snow, went on hikes and just hung out. It was a great day.

Skiing January 2010

Ski School
Carry those skis!
Griffin's first run.
Caleb's first run.
We went to Sierra Summit over vacation and taught all the kids to ski! Of course the big kids didn't think mom and dad knew much and didn't want to take lessons from us or anyone (well their friend Stephen)lol. So they went off to learn the old fashioned - somewhat difficult way while the 3 youngers took lessons. It was such a fun day! Caleb was like a bulldozer, he took a few falls because he just plays hard.......griffin is a natural, picked it up with no problem. Gillian is amazing. She was the littlest thing on the slopes that day. She didn't say much until we would ask her if she was done and she would emphatically announce that she was going back up on the magic carpet and then she would try to take off. It was so cute! We already have plans to go to Yosemite in February. The kids have all found a winter sport!

Look at this pose!
Coming down the bunny slope with her teacher Nicholas behind her! They were so cute to watch together all afternoon. She actually flirted with him while he was very enamoured with her.:)
My little pink snowman! I love this pic!
Gilly and Nick. lol
Trying to explain to the boys that they probably shouldn't go to the top of the mountain on their first day out but..............yep you guessed it.......they did it anyways!

For some reason Caleb thought he was going sledding:)
