No matter how you chose to celebrate your Christmas, I'll bet you ours was more, um...interesting.
Not having anything else to do on Christmas eve day, we took off to Leavenworth to go sledding. The drive is about 3 hours- without potty stops.
Once we got there, the girls and I decided to check out the few shops that were still open, and when we had seen what we wanted we joined the boys for sledding. The town hill is actually pretty fun-except I don't sled. I can't see throwing myseld down a hill at break neck speed anymore. Anyway, my family can't afford to have me laid up. I sure have become a fuddy-duddy in my not-so-old-age.
After sledding, my husband hijacked us- and we went to the yurt. Which I have mentioned is like sleeping in a glorified shopping bag. He said it was not premeditated, but I don't know- he was awfully prepared....
Any way, it was about 15 degrees when we got there- but we managed to warm it up to about 50 degrees for the night. Sebastian was nice enough to let me sleep with the heating blanket, and I think I would have slept OK except that I also slept with Jonah- who is all knees and elbows at night. Despite all of that, I think I got more sleep than Sebastian, who was up feeding the fire everytime I woke up.
We went out to Brunch at Shari's in Wenatchee and then back to Leavenworth for more sledding. I did get some great sled pictures.
I hope you had a fun time on your special day!
