The tiniest skier on the slopes

From Instagram: The tiniest skier on the slopes.

Despite another crazy week that didn’t really include time for a day off, we headed out on Thursday for a day at Timberline (which offers $12 lift tickets for locals on Thursdays!) with some friends.

It was so much fun to watch our girls ski with confidence around the resort. The three big girls all experienced their first black diamond run, rode the lifts together, and were comfortable skiing either in front of or behind the adults without worrying about being with them at all times, and even the two littles got a short ski session in.

Next year, instead of a trip to Snowshoe, I’d really like to buy everybody really good gear (hmm, this could be our big Christmas gift from all of the grandparents rather than toys?!) and spend every Thursday at Timberline…I can only imagine how much more their skills will improve with regular practice!

What I’m readingTeam of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin (this is a long one!), The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien (still!), The Sweetness by Sande Boritz Berger, The Sacred Year by Michael Yankoski

What I cookedshrimp alfredo (with homemade alfredo sauce), sausage balls, chicken with lemon-garlic green beans & potatoes (this was a disaster, even though it sounded amazing!), apple zucchini muffins
