|Anki Overdrive fun!|
Dan took the older kids to Alta to ski in the morning. Chris, Marty and Courtney were in competition to determine who the best skier is. And who is better than Dad. This is something Dan has dreamed of -- being able to ski with his kids and having them all keep up with each other and go wherever they want -- chutes, moguls, black diamonds -- whatever any of them want. It was a gorgeous day in the mountains and they had a blast.

|New house in the snow. Can't believe this will be where we celebrate Christmas next year!|

Rachel, Michelle and I were up until 2:30 talking and laughing. We didn't mean for it to get so late! Michelle looked at her watch and in alarm said, "It's 2:38!" We all popped up and headed straight to our rooms!
Today while everyone was skiing, Courtney and I went to lunch at Root's cafe. She told me all about the Iceland trip she and Taylor are planning. Sounds so fun! Glad they're getting their trip figured out so they actually do it! Proud of these girls graduating from college and going on adventures!
There's an antique shop next door so we shopped around just for fun and now that we have a record player, I looked for some classic vinyl. Found a Boston and Journey record. Also found our favorite records to sing and dance to while we were kids. Not Boston and Journey because we weren't cool kids. We were the nerds who spent all day listening to Saturday's Warrior and My Turn On Earth. Memorizing the words, making up choreography, acting out the parts, creating new parts. Nonstop nerd entertainment.
For dinner we all went to Sushi and met the Wingers there as well. Kids on their own table, adults on our own table. I love this season with no homework, school activities or extra curriculars, lots of family in town, cousins who love to be together and time with my sisters and brothers-in-law. That's my dream-come-true.

And in Entertainment news, Princess Leia died today. RIP Carrie Fisher. When she, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford made an appearance in last year's Star Wars movie, it was like the return of old friends. Mentors from a 70's childhood. I seriously got teary.
