Pre-Christmas Trip

Today I am headed to Lake Tahoe with my family.  Right before Anne was born, I took my hubby to Lake Tahoe and he fell in love and said that he would like to see it in the winter covered in snow.  Well, tomorrow we are granting his wish – the only problem is that the weather man isn’t granting it! There will sadly be no snow except man made on a couple of the slopes.

 

Do you have any fun family traditions or trips that you take every year?  We don’t really do much in the way of vacations because we live so far from our families. We usually spend whatever leave time my hubby gets from the Army traveling to visit our families.  This is exciting for us – actually taking a little vacation.

In other news, one of my blogging friends is hosting an awesome giveaway on her blog Pieces to Love. She is giving away a $30.00 credit for long arm quilting. Definitely worth checking out if you haven’t already! Oh yeah, and follow her blog too! She is wonderful 🙂

I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas and checking off everything on your list.  So far, I am done Christmas Shopping and have all but 2 of my gifts wrapped. My hubby built Anne’s present from “Santa” today – he is bringing her a bike this year and my mom is giving her a helmet. It is a Nutcase Helmet and on the back it says “I love my brain!” I am so in love with this helmet. I can’t think of anything more important than my child wearing a helmet, I was wearing one when I was in an accident as a child that left me with permanent brain damage and I know if I hadn’t been wearing one I probably would have died. The fact that the helmet says “I love my brain” just tickles every parenting fiber in my body!!! Anne picked out the helmet with the smiley face 🙂

I will be back on the blog Friday to figure out who the winner of The Intrepid Thread $25.00 gift card is and I will announce the winner on Christmas Eve! You still have time to enter if you haven’t already!

Merry Christmas!

    I want to go to Lake Tahoe some day. I might be going by myself, but then again it could be a fun ‘girls vacation’ or ‘quilt retreat’. Hmm, I wonder if I could really get away with that…

    It would be nice if there was snow for your trip, but the downside to that is the roads always get nasty around Tahoe if it storms. Myself-I would rather have the good roads 🙂 Have a safe & fun trip.

    Maybe mother nature will grant you some snow while you are there. Stranger things have happened!I hope you have a wonderful time no matter what. That is a great helmet!! 🙂 Love it!

  4. We are going to the Outlaws. They were pretty upset that Savi won’t be here for Xmas, esp as this is the first year the Auntie Zoe won’t be coming either. But I think it will still be nice, although about 3 days is my limit. After 8 years of marriage and over 11 of being together, Mike’s parents still unnerve me. Lol what a chicken I am!

    Tahoe is still pretty even if there isn’t any snow! Wishing for snow for you 😉

    We were in Lake Tahoe in April of this year……it’s by far my most favorite place on earth. My hubs family is from Northern Cali, so everytime we visit them, we visit Lake Tahoe. I only wish I could afford to live there.
