Family trip to Mt. Bachelor today

Warm-up snack. So many snacks! (great tip Tami ❤️)

Luca is all set and very excited to ride the chair lift.

A great day at the mountain

P.S. I also found out on this trip that apparently my snowboard gear is considered “vintage” 😁

As most people in Oregon know we had an early morning surprise on Sunday. Snow!!  We were all very excited to head out and have some fun.

Well some of us were a little unsure…

Buckets and shovels ready to …. well actually I’m not sure what they were thinking in this photo.  I just have a feeling I’m about to get hit with snowballs.


Momma came out to play too

Just enough snow for sleding and we even built a little ramp

 Autumn loved the sled and Luca was happy to pull his sister up and down the street.

Snow Day!

Sigh, how does so much time go by between blog posts? I suppose one reason is that I came down with the flu and pneumonia, which knocked me out for a few weeks and from which I’m still recovering. Chris did an amazing job making up for my complete inability to function by taking care of everything at home after being at work for a full day. And Luca, thankfully, is able to spend a good amount of his time playing on his own these days so I was able to stay on the couch for much of the time that he was home with me. We had our first real snow day during my period of incapacitation, and I mustered up enough energy to take Luca outside for a bit one morning to enjoy the fluffy whiteness covering his front yard. Here he is, excited to head outside:

I expected him to walk around the yard exploring the snow, but he ended up just standing in place for the majority of the time. I think it was so new and foreign to him that all he could do was just stand still and try to take it in.

Hmm, what is this fluffy white stuff?

I’ve never seen anything like this before-oh look! Cars!

Taking a momentary break from being bewildered to make a funny face.

Oh hey, more cars!

He really enjoyed knocking snow off the tree branches, but I wasn’t able to hold him up to the branches and snap a picture at the same time without dropping him/straining my shoulder/throwing out my back/slipping on the sidewalk. So we settled on a portrait (watching the cars again of course) with some beautiful snowy trees in the background.
