Christmas Party Hijinks

Casey and I attended her annual work Christmas party a couple of weeks ago.  We ate Hibachi and it was delisiosa!  Thanks Dr. Mack.  He gave everyone a new Apple iPad!  Everyone was in shock.

Here's a video of the traditional "throw-broccoli-in-the-air-and-catch-it-in-your-mouth" game.  I suck at it.

Copper Mountain Ski Resort

We bought lift tickets from the scouts again this year.  Can't beat $25 lift tickets.  Anyway, this was my first time boarding in powder.  I NOW know what I've been missing and what others were talking about all these years. There was about 12 inches of fresh powder.  It almost went up to our knees as our boards stayed hidden beneath.  Very cool!

We went up with Eric and 4 of his kids (7-12 yrs).  The kids are awesome!  They did a great job.

Casey, showing me how it's done.  (Watch Eric's 8-year old Colin enter from the left and start to wipe out as he leaves the right side of the picture)

I got brave and tried to film Casey as I followed her down one hill.  The powder was awesome!!


Dr. Mack (cheese!)

Mallory and Colin (love the names on the helmets so dad knows who's who)
