I hope you all had fun-fille JUST WHAT I NEEDED kind of gifts. :)
We spent our Christmas in Big bear , learning to snowboard. We dropped Regina and Gabriel to snowboarding school, where they spent whole day learning to snowboard. Gabriel told me that HE LOVES it and it is lots of fun, but Regina thinks that It was fun, but not really her thing. :)
my dh had jetflag and missed his first day of snowboarding. ( wasted 150 dollars), and in most days he was sleeping until noon.. Our cabin was cute, but had few major issues. We wanted to use fireplace, but after 45 minutes of fire , smoke started to come into house. It was SMOKY AND WORST PART WAS that smoke detectors didi not activate. Very upsetting. Then, heater did not heat up second floor, so we all slept downstairs , also doors did not lock properly, and previous renters left trash everywhere ( outside). But overall, it was one of the funnest experiences I had in a long time. I learned to snowboard. It is unbelivable feeling to race down the hill and NOT fall once. But first day (4 hours) I spent sliding down on my butt...lol I did injure myself couple of times, but I really did not care about that. :
Regina and Gabriel got for christmas- JUST what they needed- American girl dolls, pop up books, bike, Supergirl TV, clothes, puzzles,cars....
On 28th, it was our 8th weddig anniversary. We went to Beverly hills and had HUGE dinner in Brazilian BBQ- 15 different kinds of meat and Awsome salad bar,. After that we just walked around and ended up in bowling place for 21 and older. And after few more drinks we went back to our hotel.( kids were with babysitter). I desperately wanted to go to vegas, and we made plans to go there, but my dh chickened out- TO LONG DRIVE. He has been downer lately....
Today is dec.30 and tomorrow dec31. I still can not belive that one more year has passed. year 2006 was good but very challenging year. Regina started growth hormone therapy, ( and she is growing allready), she started antigen therapy for her allergines, 1st grade, new skills, new hobbies, she is learning to read, and so much more..
Tomorrow we will be going to LA Estonian house to welcome year 2007. :) Talk to you soon.
Stay safe. :)
