Canadian Christmas

To round out all of the Christmas celebrations, we headed up to Canada to spend some time with Theresa and Tony.  We did dinner at Montanas the first night, then opened presents in the condo.  December 2012 116

Olivia got an insane amount of new dress-up.  She loved it, of course and spent the rest of the time trading from one pretty outfit to the next.  She even dressed her napping dad up.

Theresa and I took Derek, Olivia and Syd to the magic carpet to get their bearings before heading out to any real runs.  Derek was hilarious.  He would not stop, or do a pizza.  He kept telling Theresa he wanted to do a 360 and that’s actually what he kept doing.  He’d get going to fast, turn around backwards, sometimes fall and other times he’d keep turning around and continue skiing.  Unfortunately he had no real control so this is where he skied most of the trip.

Olivia had her first ski run on the little magic carpet.  She had a great time!  She had no control and no turns but had a lot of fun.

Sydney was cautious as usual but after a lesson was skiing better than ever!

Carter also had a lesson and gained some real confidence.  He kept wanting to ski on runs that were over his head but he kept a good attitude and had fun (a first for him).

Theresa got the kids a snow painting kit.  It wasn’t quite what we thought it was but they had a good time regardless.
