This year, my family rented a big cabin up in Aspen Grove (it’s just above Sundance for those of you not familiar with Provo Canyon . . . Sundance as in Robert Redford and the Sundance Film Festival) for our family Christmas Party. It was a one big sleepover with lots of fun things to do . . .
We didn’t sleep over though . . . it was the night of Hannah’s performance in the Nutcracker, so my little family didn’t join the party until the morning.
Honestly though, it sounded like no one got much sleep in the big cabin with lots, and lots of bodies. (He! He!)
We braved a big snow storm to get to the party. It was a “chains or 4-wheel drive required” kind of drive.
It didn’t stop snowing ALL DAY LONG. The kids didn’t care though, Hannah LOVED sledding! (And do you think I was responsible and brought my camera? No. Pics courtesy of the iPhone.)
This hill is really quite long and steep. I heard through the “Probst family grapevine” that my nieces and nephews (the older ones, like eight and up) were up until 1:00 AM sledding on that hill.
Oh. My. No wonder no one got any sleep!
I know it’s practically impossible to tell in this picture, but those little ant size dots on the snow are skiers at Sundance.
David and both let out a sigh when we saw them, skiing on fresh snow.
Seriously, we haven’t skied in 12 years.
Not that I was a big ski bum or anything, but it is fun.
We had a lovely family party and it’s nice to have some of my family nearby to share the holidays with!
