Fun in the Mountains

Here are some highlights of my family's fun in the NC mountains this past weekend. We hadn't exchanged Christmas presents yet so it was kind of Christmas in January....along with good food and good memories.

We did some sledding, Alden is showing good form.....

GP and McKinley on the lift at Beech Mountain. I have never had such good snow conditions in NC. And a half off Groupon for lift tickets didn't hurt either.
She did great, wish I could have learned to ski as a kid!

This is Marshall's 4th day on skiis. He is fearless, he even did a Black Diamond with strict instructions from his Dad to stay in control.

Even Grandaddy got into the snow sports.....we all did a session at the tubing park!

I finally got Alden's Star Wars quilt and Dad's 70th birthday quilt all done. Check off two UFO's for me!!

This was our first get together in the snow...hopefully it won't be our last. I like the beach for summer, but you couldn't beat the conditions for outdoor snow fun this weekend.

Looks like you all had a great time. I agree, I wish I had learned to ski when I was a kid. They are very lucky to have an aunt and uncle like you and GP!

Who needs the beach when you have BEECH? Those boys and their quilts are so cute! Look at Marshall... whoa!

Looks like lots of fun was had by all. Great quilts you made for the guys.
I have never been skiing and at my age probably never will.
