Leavenworth

We spent this last weekend in Leavenworth, and I can't put into words how fantastic it was. There was snow everywhere, but it wasn't snowing hard, so we never had to worry about chaining up the bug. There was even blue sky all day on Saturday, as we walked around Leavenworth sipping hot-chocolate. Our hotel, was a mountain retreat, and we had our own little cabin. Each time we left to eat or walk to the lodge, we had to get all bundled up, and it was so fun. Emma ran and ran through all the trails on the property, and just had a blast being outside in the cold. I think we've started a new family tradition, so anyone who wants to join us next year, Leavenworth is the place to be! Luke and Lindsey came with us, and it was so fun to spend time with them. They went skiing/ snowboarding on Saturday, and then we ate, played cards and talked late into the night. So fun! The entire time, I was wishing the whole family was there, since we were having such a good time.

My favorite little store in Leavenworth is the CheeseMonger's shop. It has a huge variety of cheeses that you can taste from all over the world, we bought some really delicious cheese to come home and snack on. So yummy. :)

Here are some photos and videos of our adventures...

That looks like an amazing time. I really want to be there next time. So sad we missed it. Carrie, your hair looks adorable. I love it. When did you cut it? You look great with short hair. And Emma's clothes are so cute.
