Drove 1.5 hours from Grass Valley to Lake Tahoe to experience our first snow fall.
Snow started falling only 20 minutes into drive - kids loved watching the snow ploughs that roam the highway. Ed was clever enough to get an AWD vehicle that meant we could leave snow chains @ home.
Spent time at ski gear outlets finding snow jacket and pants for Hazza - a bargain @ $23 each. My massive mammories made jacket purchase a little difficult but eventually found one in basic black - will accessorize with colorful beanie !!

The lake is something out of a picture book - surrounded by cute alpine cottages and massive pine trees - dined on a blackened salmon sandwich (yummy). Drove up the mountain to explore North star - our Xmas destination - beautiful village atmosphere with ice skating rink in the middle surrounded by lots of restaurants, shops and bars.

Left home @ 4.00 with hands frozen from snow ball fights to drive home along icy roads in the dark.
