"It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like..."

The male half of our family spent the day on Snoqualmie Pass yesterday for their first day of skiing/ snowboarding of the season!

I had asked Mr. G. to take my little camera with them so that they could shoot some pictures and these are some of the ones they came home with. Pretty impressive amount of snow right?

You can see the I-90 highway down below in the valley...

A little joke...
 
The slopes are only a 45 minute drive from our home so a great place to get some quick skiing in. It doesn't have the largest runs so it is good for a 'warm-up' so to speak. The school's ski- bus will be going to Stevens Pass in January and February which is about an hour and a half to two hours away...

This was my most favorite photo...


We bought our own Christmas tree this afternoon and Mr. G. is currently hanging the outdoor x-mas lights. And then, in half hour, we're off to celebrate our belated Thanksgiving. And it is still weekend!  {smile}

  4. Ongelofelijk, jullie al sneeuw en kerstmis... hier veel zon, af en toe een grijze dag (zoals vandaag) en blijkbaar sinds 1906 de droogste maand november ooit...! Wat een schitterende foto's, vooral die laatste!! Fijne Thanksgiving!

  8. Wat heeft je blog een leuke verandering ondergaan. Spannend, met die grappige retro-foto's van Sneeuw en Sint.
    We hebben nog geen sneeuw in midden Zweden (waren we wel al drie winters aan gewend ;-0 ), maar hopen natuurlijk op een witte Kerst.
    Des te leuker om de sneeuw bij jou te zien. Fantastsisch!
