Every year for the past 17 years, we have gone on a family ski/snowboard vacation. Well the family is getting bigger with an additional four spouses and five grandchildren. Wendy, Alyssa, Rachelle and Clarissa were unable to grace the slopes this year due to new baby or pregnancy. This year will add a toal of four new grandchildren, three girls and one TBA. However it was great to be together and enjoy family togetherness. Of course, there were the nightly xbox competitions. On Sunday, Steve and Wendy had their baby Naomi blessed. These occasions are what life is all about.
