Skiing finally

Well the first ski trip is on the radar. We are headed to Lutsen next weekend. I can't wait. This winter has been odd so far. But it looks like the conditions are finally good and it is time to go. I have been waiting for Lutsen to be 100% open at least on their primary runs which they now are and it looks like they have great coverage so we are going to go it a go.

The holidays are pretty much over. We don't do anything exciting for New Years so that doesn't really count for us except for the not having to work part which rules. I think tonight we are going to get a pizza and watch the Wild game. Melissa has discovered a new found love for hockey, which is awesome. She likes to watch on TV and go to the games in person so Win - Win...

I am kind of bummed that Christmas is over though. I like Christmas a lot. And it always makes me sad when it is over. *sigh*

50 days till our ski trip to Big Sky!!! Sweet!

Not Much

well we finally have some snow on the ground. Not much but at least it is going to be a white Christmas. I haven't been out skiing yet which is hard to believe but like I said there isn't any snow! I keep waiting and hoping that we will get some real stuff here in the next few days, but there is nothing in the forecast so I wait.

Meanwhile the west is finally starting to get some snow and it is piling up out there nicely. Big Sky is now 63 days away and they are getting snow almost daily. So as long as they have lots for us when we get there I will be happy.

Christmas is almost here. I am excited. I love Christmas time. We have a nice tree up in our house and some lights around the house outside. It looks really nice and festive. My shopping is pretty much done. I just need to pick up a few small things and everything will be done. It is hard to believe that another Christmas is just a few days away. Even though I still love Christmas it is a bummer to be old and not have quite the same excitement as I did when I was little waiting for Santa Claus to come. Even though he does still swing by our house. Which is pretty cool of him. We don't really have much in the way of plans hooked up for Christmas. I think we are going to have a couple of nice days off, relax and enjoy each others company.

My classes are done and that is exciting. I think they both went pretty well and I was happy with how I did. I am waiting to get my grades, but I think I am in the 90% range for both classes. So that is good.

Melissa and I went to a Minnesota Wild hockey game the other night and just had a blast. Those games are so much fun. I love hockey, I wish I could go to more games but they are pretty expensive. So it was fun to go, hopefully we can get to another game before the season is over.

Think snow...
