A Bit of Everything!

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Did you all have a nice weekend? We went skiing at Attitash in NH because our friends have a house on the mountain, so staying with them is not only tons of fun, but more affordable.  We are so lucky that they are so generous - they host different families every single weekend. I'd like to think I'd do that too, but it's never been tested :)

Here is Ellie on the chair - I love this one of her. I adore that little face so much! 

Bobby didn't want to be posted much today and didn't like the photos, so I'm following his wishes.  Ellie, on the other hand, simply loves being on the internet. That could prove to be a problem when she is a teenage, but for now, once in a while is ok here, I think ;)

And yes, it was every single bit as cold as it looks in the photos. At first, the bitter cold and rainy weather made me feel stupid for ever going skiing at all, but the kids didn't care and had a blast, so it was worth it.

And one last one of Ellie learning the balancing board (Olio? or something). She is absolute proof that where there is a will there is a way:

This is such a random collection, but has been sitting in my draft folder forever.  Enjoy!

Can you believe how gorgeous this is? I love the gold and concrete tables the most:

Your friends are generous and smart. The joy of having a special place is that you share it with friends and have fun.
Ellie is getting so tall.

Check her out! I love that she's so determined. It will keep her off the internet when she gets older. ;) Sounds like you have great friends. I've realized friends with vacation homes are better than having a vacation home!

Your daughter is so cute, seeing those pics made me think back to our family ski trips, what I would give for my kids to be young again, I could cry just thinking about it!!!!

Love the random rooms, that black lacquered library is to die for.
