Christmas in Ruidoso

Is there anything about Christmas that isn't just (It's clearly been 8 months since then and I've forgotten all of the work and stress and late nights and exhaustion). This Christmas was a lot of fun. I think I say it every year, but this stage was just the best. Everything was so magical for them. Even Harper got pretty excited about the details. We baked cookies, did the stupid Elf on the Shelf, helped Eli and Landon shop for gifts for everyone and loved watching them get more excited about giving than getting.

We went skiing in Ruidoso, NM with all of Dustin's family for Christmas. It was Eli and Landon's first time to go skiing and they did pretty well. Harper stayed with Nemo and Papa while we were on the slopes. There wasn't a whole lot of snow, so they only had a few slopes open, but it wasn't terribly crowded and it was the perfect opportunity to just take it easy and help the boys.

We went on a horse drawn carriage ride on Christmas Eve. It was a lot of fun and about half way through, snow just started pouring from the sky. We had a white Christmas and it was beautiful and exciting...for the first five minutes...and then it was just wet and cold.  It was much more enjoyable from the comfort of our warm cabin.

Eli and Landon got new bikes this year and Harper got a pink kitchen :)
