Holiday Road Trip

 My Mom, my daughter and me all drove to Ashland Oregon to meet up with my sister to celebrate Christmas early (early=the true McCutcheon way). It was quite the snowy adventure on the way up. I think it took us 3 hours to go 15 miles at one point, but we made it and were very happy! Only wish we had a few more days to hang out.

Here was our happy snowman mascot on the dashboard. We were sure we would be running around in the snow in Ashland, but it was only a bit rainy. The sun even came out for a bit.

Oh my!! It was so great to be with my sister! My daughter thinks the world of her too. Her shirt says "Auntie Auntie Auntie" and I think that sums things up well. It was pure bliss to be there and we all cannot wait to do it again.

Even got some fancy coffees! So good! LE and Madison were the fashion trend setters. If only we could all be so put together. And that Living Papaya store was so awesome and inspirational. The Store called Prize was chock full of wonderful things. I got urges to copy it all!

Hard to believe I used to live here. I do not think there was ever this much snow in my short stay in Mount Shasta. We had to make a stop here to make the snowman we had talked up for days before the trip. I love the joyful expression my daughter wore the whole time as she experienced real snow for her first time.

Nice to be home and finally (on Christmas eve) I have the Holiday houses lit and set up. We even fit in making some chocolate chip cookies for Santa and found some carrots for the reindeer. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!!!
