The gondola ride up is always really pretty. This year it was extra exciting when the ride suddenly stopped and we all hung out nervously wondering how long we’d all be stuck up there. Thankfully, things got moving pretty quickly!
Prancer was kind of a big deal. He was so friendly and paid all the children visits at the fence. Last year there were two reindeer (Vixen, I think). Not sure what happened to him. But we did see some tasty reindeer dishes on the food network today. Hmmmmmm…..
…but what we really need to do is just spend another day doing this. She did this over and over and over again. Her little cheeks were so pink and adorable from all the fresh cold air. And see that brown spot? Yeah, there wasn’t a ton of snow for sliding. But it really did not matter to J. Vancouver kids make the most out of any little bit of snow.
Inside the chalet we checked out some pretty fantastic gingerbread houses. It gave me one or two ideas for next year. And a little note to our friends in Phoenix – you guys would kill it with one of these!
Hope everyone is having a Merry Christmas Eve. Our elf is in bed, rocking her Christmas jams and is super pumped that she made it onto the ‘nice list’ (of course) – word came from Santa via email earlier on. I’m looking forward to watching something festive and prepping some french toast for the morning.
