White and More White

The design in grass shows pattern from rolling up the snow.
Our December 20th arrival in Seattle was surprisingly white. As I finished my afternoon conference calls, I watched the flurry of activity in front of my Brother's house. My Sister-in-Law was shoveling snow off the driveway with the help of Oldest Nephew (age 16.) Oldest Son was hurling small snow balls displaying his baseball skills. Youngest Son along with my two nieces, Oldest Niece (age 12) and Youngest Niece (age 9) where rolling large snow balls to build snow forts.

Then we had more fun with the white stuff today. Brother and I took Oldest Son, Youngest Son, Oldest Niece and Youngest Niece to Crystal Mountain which is about an hour from Brother's house. The conditions were far from perfect but we had a fun day anyway. It is a family tradition to ski and snow board together. And I have now skied in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Idaho, New York and Washington!
Getting everyone equipped takes some effort.
