Every year we go skiing in Mammoth for New Year's. It is a really fun vacation. I love driving up there and just being in the snow. They have great skiing of course but also cute little shops, a great book store, and yummy places to eat. It also gives me some time to just not have to be doing the norm. The boys are trying snowboard school this year so we shall see how they do. Mark and I will be trading off I suppose so in that time I am planning on bringing a few things to keep me occupied. So I have purchased my new Jan. mags and plan on bringing along my art stuff to work on a few things - the question always is what to bring? So I am packing today and we will be off tmr in the wee hours of morning.
