Took a New Year’s  snow trip to Mt.Shasta, Ca with my husband’s side of the family.  There was a blanket of fresh soft snow that was about 4 ft. deep at the house.  All the houses had long icicles lining the roof edges, it was such a cool thing to see. The kids pulled a few and used them as swords and made an icicle kingdom in the backyard.  We had lots of fun sledding, snowshoeing for the first time and even filmed a short film for our UCLA film student family friend.  Mt.Shasta’s a small town surrounded by beautiful scenery and is a good place to go if you want to avoid the busy crowds that flock to Tahoe for the snow.

Our second trip to the snow this winter was to Lake Tahoe, this time with my side of the family, which was a total of 13 adults and 12 kids (ages’ ranging from 2-14).  We rented a house for the President’s Day weekend and just had a lounging time hanging out together.  With so many people, coordinating food can be challenging, so we decided that every family would be responsible for cooking and preparing one meal for everyone.  It worked out perfectly.  Everyone ends up chipping in.  Our family is pretty tight knit and we try to take yearly trips together and spend the holidays together.  Some of our fondest memories are making breakfast together and chatting while the mimosa’s keep pouring in.  One of the highlights of this trip is when we ALL (including the pre-teens) had to check in our electronic devices and weren’t allowed to touch them for a few hours, so we could actually spend quality time without the distraction of being on our devices.  We broke into two teams including all of the kids and played a game of charades, it was one of the funnest times we had as a “whole” family.

Fluently lived,

K.
